I will not share a hotel room with anyone who does not also regularly share my bed. I don't care how expensive it makes things for me. I'll pay. It's worth it.
This is me also.
I have very few other hills. I only hike with DH or my DDs. (They understand my asthma and inability to "keep up" they are okay with walking ahead and waiting or walking slower. I am, however, like the EverReady Bunny - I can go and keep on going, all day long, but I move a bit slow.)
When in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, I will
be spending a morning or afternoon (at least an hour) at Knit on Pearl
. I will spend a couple of hundred dollars there for some of their awesome yarn, so be prepared. It takes time to select the yarn, I have to feel everything - then the yarn has to "speak" to me so I can figure out a project. If we are traveling some other place and I see a yarn stop, we will be stopping - same rules apply as above.
I will want to stop frequently if there are photo ops for me. I take macro photos, mostly of flowers, so I may be asking to stop a lot. DH is used to this. I will not drive unless I am forced to do so, I far prefer to knit while someone else drives.
I need to eat otherwise I will be ill. Plan on three meals a day. I also need a sit-down toilet, I will not squat in the woods. I need a bed that supports my back. These are not wants, they are musts - otherwise I am okay with just about anything.
One fun thing DH and I have done lately, is try to find someplace new in a frequently visited area. We have been doing this on our jaunts (we take about 12 a year - 3 or 4 day trips). So if we go to say Zions, we try to find a place close where we have been. What fun that has been. It is how we found Cliff Dwellers Arizona - what a unique and fun trip that was. Also - as one poster already said, think of things as opportunities - it's raining in Yellowstone and is cold, well see the hot pots in the rain, they are like walking into a science fiction movie. The road is closed? Find an interesting something on the detour. It has improved our travels a lot to be more flexible.
