  1. I love the blog. Fellow Airstream blogger Monica Bennett turned me on to it. Since I am based in Ohio, I am mesmerized with the west. I am preparing a bucket list entry on my blog and I came up with some of the same places. I have been to Hunting Island and it is a special place. It is wild but close to Charleston and Savannah. I have an entry about it on my blog. Also, you should add Grayton Beach and Saint Joseph Peninsula State Park to your Florida list. Happy travels and keep posting.

  2. Doug, thanks so much for the info,will definitely add them to the list !

  3. Love this list and how it's layer out by state. I will definitely refer to this list as we plan our year long adventure around the states.

    1. Thanks Alice and letme know if you find a little gem while you are out and about !
