Not natl. parks but RV parks. Jammed. We made a stop for one night and got the only space. Evidently RV sales and rentals are through the roof. People are figuring it out. When we arrived our 'paperwork' was in a slot at the locked front door and a man drove us to our spot in his golf cart. 

 

Yes, I've been hearing a lot of RV trips with butlers onboard; I guess people really want to mimic the luxury cruise experience ...

If we stick to a road trip, probably somewhere in the Blue Ridge Mountains or back to Gatlinburg, TN for some hiking in the Smokies.

 

Also kicking around the idea of taking Amtrak up through the Northeast for fall foliage or, if we really need a beach fix, catching a flight down to Florida.

 

Thanks for the great travel ideas; I've never been to Gatlinburg but I've heard it's beautiful.

We live in Reno which is near where Burning Man is usually held...but not this year. The gazillionaires come in their jets, with their million dollar RVs delivered. Including the private chefs. Totally subverting the point of the original Burning Man. OK, sorry for Ot.

We're just finishing up a week in an airbnb in Nehalem Oregon (15 minutes from the coast). Tomorrow we're heading to the Olympic Peninsula in Washington.

 

Our airbnb is on 10 acres with riverfront, a fire pit three acres of mowed 'lawn.' A wonderful time.
