Today's topic (it is still today, right?) comes from [personal profile] gritsinmisery, who offers: Places you would visit on the North American continent (other than Black Rock) if money and health were no objects.

  • Back to NYC. [personal profile] gridlore and I have each been solo; it'd be nice to get there together. On the dream to-do list: Hamilton, natch; dinner at Gramercy Tavern (and maybe be there on a night KO shows up); Radio City (ideally the Rockettes, but I'm open to alternatives).
  • Back to Austin, ideally during bat season. Take Doug to Tears of Joy, catch some live music this time.
  • Sturgis Bike Week, ideally with a trike worthy of the event.
  • The Inside Passage of Alaska. (Some of you may recall this was the original anniversary idea, before Istanbul became a reality.)
  • A "greatest hits" tour of Canada. Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, Montreal again (Eggspectation, how we've missed you!), Prince Edward Island.

I'm sure there are places I'm forgetting, but I'm already just under the wire on this. Maybe another night. ;-)

I'm not a bike girl, but the rest of these sound fabulous to me. Hubs and I did a greatest hits of England and Scotland back when we were DINKs instead of SITCOMs; I love that sort of vacation and Canada would be a fun way to do so (although there would be flying between some locations; I'm not up for a cross-continental drive.)

Hubs took me on a surprise visit to NYC when I turned 40 (let's hear it for FF miles and HH points) and we did all the stupid touristy things that one does in NYC (albeit sans the WTC because 9/11 was half a year earlier.) I walked his fuzzy white butt off. Stayed at the Waldorf-Astoria, ate at Tavern on the Green, saw Contact right before it closed. Best present EVER.

We couldn't offer crash space but I'd love to meet both of you in person. :-D
