The company that bought the plant at which I worked, has HQ in NOLA, and had I continued to work for them, I would have had to go down for training. I guess that's the only thing I missed, having retired when I did!


wow  good for them!  Would you like to go and visit them?

When my cousins were here from Israel, they did what I'd call "The Patriot" tour .. Niagara Falls, Boston, New York, Baltimore/Annapolis & Washington, D.C.

 

From their list, I think I'd like New Orleans & Charleston, since I've been to many of the others already.

 

 


I hope they enjoyed their "tour"!   I am sure you would love New Orleans. Don't know Charleston to know but I would think so.

Me? Easy-peasy! Any place on the western US map without major highways, cities, attractions or population. Wilderness, high mountains and singing coyotes a plus. 

 

The other thing we look for are long bike trails (think rails to trails).

 

Yee haw! Smiley Happy

 

 

 


Beautiful.  The Oregon Washington coastal area has it's sparse population areas and it is very beautiful.  The desert can be as well.   We all have our best places !!  : )

Boy is it hard to narrow this down.

 

1 New York City

2 Hilton Head 

3 Route 1  The California Oregon Washington coastal trip  (not really a destination exactly but oh well)

4 New Orleans

5 Reno/Tahoe   /  Cape Cod   kind of a tie

 

You?
