Travel Resolutions for 2020

My top 13 personal 2020 travel resolutions - or, as someone coined - "travelutions" - include:

  1. Regular carV practice in Chez Prius before the big road trip to Alaska
  2. Road trip to Alaska
  3. Road trip with my mother
  4. Loose ends closure: New Mexico: A hike in the Bisti Wilderness
  5. Loose ends closure: Drive to the southern end of Highway 1 in Louisiana
  6. Indirectly related to travel: When I leave Tucson, I will have slashed my inventory of belongings to the point where I can carV in Chez Prius as I migrate on the way to whereversville
  7. A second trip to Nogales
  8. A trip to Yuma, forever riveted into my brain with The Devil's Highway
  9. A trip to San Luis Rio Colorado, MX, which is just south of Yuma
  10. A trip to Naco, Sonora, MX, which is south of Bisbee
  11. A trip to Agua Prieta, Sonora, MX, also south of Bisbee
  12. While still in Arizona, push out of my comfort zone by staying solo on public lands
  13. Push out of my comfort zone by hiking solo more often

Below are past travel resolutions, which continue to be relevant today. I've looked at more recent lists, but they generally repeat the content of previous years' lists. This is because the best resolutions are timeless best practices not only for travel, but for daily life.

I don't know how to email you so I'll leave this suggestion here.
(I've posted before.)
The following link is for an upcoming exhibition 1/16 (and other dates) at the UA Tuscon art museum that you may find interesting. UA art museum puts on good shows and I can attest that the artist(s) here also are sure to impress. Something to consider.

Happy 2020 & All the best!

Hi JA! Thank you for the heads-up on this art exhibit - I will make a point of checking it out. To be specific, for other readers, the exhibit is called "Other Targets." A tiny excerpt about it: "... Through the works in this exhibition, the artists examine intersections of the complicated histories of prejudice, fear and socio-economic underpinnings that mine the permanent divisions between us and them. The works also occupy a space of socially engaged art that humanizes issues that divide our communities...."
