Staying home until next year. My wife would like to go see her dad but is being cautious because of his age and the different things going around during the winter. We have no desire to be the ones to bring something to him that ends up costing him his life.

Every year at Christmas we travel from Portland Oregon to Redding Ca to spend time with kids and grandkids. To keep from inconveniencing the families (plus I prefer my own bed) we decided a couple years ago that we would pull our 5th wheel and stay in a KOA close by. So yes, we will travel this year armed with chains for both truck and trailer to see family. My husband is a retired long-haul truck driver, so I’m happy to travel with him through winter conditions.

Same here as the 1st couple of comments I read. Seems as we get older the family members spread out all over.
There is no way I plan on going back to my home town again, Seattle, read the news.
Snow and fuel prices also matter, and potholes…….(;+)…..

The only family my roommate and I have are his nephew, his wife, and their son but they live in California and we can’t afford (Social Security is our only income) to travel there they have family there so can’t travel here! I have no living family.

the only family is in Chicago which is currently too dangerous to travel to.

We are hosting this year in our stix and brix, but those coming are at drivable distances. One is only 110 steps away! It will be a merry day.

Really great newsletter. Off subject. I loved the story of awnings. The neighborhood was how I grew up. Oh how I miss mama & daddy at Christmas. No, not traveling anywhere, parked in RGV for 2 more months. Fulltimers. Merry Christmas to the great journalists here, readers and families.

Nope. Did the visiting with family for Thanksgiving. Winter weather can get a little dicey here around Christmas time.

None of the above but will be somewhere along the Colorado River below Hoover dam with our small string of solar Christmas lights on.

Bringing dinner to my 94 yr old mother’s home & her caregiver. 20 minutes away. One of my 2 sisters, and a brother (1 of 5!), his wife and 3 grown children, and his 2 grandchildren are joining us and helping out. As recently as 2019 our entire family, about 30 of us would be at my Mom’s, but Covid and then a fall by my Mom & 3 month hospital/rehab stay (where she couldn’t have any visitors) changed all of that, sadly. Before my Dad passed away 12 years ago, he and my Mom would make homemade lasagna and we would all bring something. Mom continued until Covid/fall. Appreciate all the moments you have as things can change in the blink of an eye. Merry Christmas to all.

We’ve already arrived so I am not sure how to answer. We plan on a two week stay but, looking at the extended forecast, the weather may extend that.

To my Nephew’s 1/2 hour away. My family has been here since the 1700’s and my brother-in-law’s since the Irish migration.

DW’s parents are 75 minutes removed from us and my mother is 3 minutes away. We see them all regularly and will spend time with each. When DW’s parents have a houseful we take the RV. We will be going by car this year.

My wife will be flying from Tucson tomorrow to Shreveport where our son in law and adult grand kids are. Our granddaughter was severely traumatized at a college Halloween party, our daughter is currently out of the country on temporary duty for Barksdale AFB in a civilian capacity. Our granddaughter needs grandma loving very much.
I’ll be spending Christmas alone with our doggy in the RV park. Not really alone as I have friends here, but it’s the first one since I retired from the Navy 27 years ago that we haven’t been together.

We will be traveling about 3 hours away by car in order to driveway camp at a relative’s home. Our camper has been set up there for a couple of years now. It’s centrally located to most of our other relatives and that makes it wonderful for getting to visit everyone.

We are staying home by ourselves since neither of our 2 sons will be coming home this year. One son is moving into a new home before the end of the year and the other son has 2 large dogs he has to stay home to care for.

I will be traveling via amtrak from Arizona to Illinois for the Christmas season. I decided that to travel in bitter cold weather with my camper was not an option for me.
