Personal pages:

Please keep in mind that rates and details can change.
If you are inspired to head out on an adventure of your own, double check with the actual location. There can be a gap between my person visits, I may not have the most up to date info.

I will update places I have been to within the previous year and archive places we will not go back to (my kids are in high school or graduated now!) I will put TBU next to pages on the list to be revisited within the next year and will update as I can.
