Fingers crossed and I am very confident. I have largely ignored the theme parks as I believe they may be the biggest snag. I have contingency plans in the event that Universal is closed (USS Iowa) and if Warner Bros is closed (Laurel Canyon). I have less than no interest in Disney and have done 6 flags in any case.

There are no activities (other than Warner Bros and Universal) that could in any way be described as 僧ass attendance . All I need is to get there and for the Hotels and restaurants to be open.

I honestly believe that if the USA has not opened to us (and others) by next August, then there will be no airlines for mass travel, few theme parks remaining and that the damage to tourism will be both permanent and irreparable.

I知 the same CFB, booked for next summer. Part of the trip is going to be using my DVC (I hope) at Grand Californian so if DL is not open I値l have to make alternative plans for that section.

Looks a great trip.

Our first (and still only) West Coast trip was also in 2018 and we saw most of the PCH from what I recall, although I remember the mudslide and the issues it had created.

Checking email for the flight confirmations, we were there 10-29 August - maybe we got lucky and arrived just after most of the road was re-opened.

There is certainly plenty in the area, should parks and high density attractions be either severely restricted or even closed.

In 2018, one of our absolute highlights was the Reagan library in the Simi Valley. As you will see in the trippie in my signature, it is nothing like a Library, huge, and extremely interesting.

There are also RMS Queen Mary (Great to stay the night on and also in the trip report).. and plenty of other alternatives.

Have you done a pre trippy ? I am rather curious as to your plans and in fact, build my own multi centres on the basis of the planning and experiences of others.

Yes I致e seen the library and really fancy a trip there.

I値l maybe put up our plans shortly. We are flying to New Orleans and hopefully onto Vegas, then Palm Springs, then Grand Cali, then LA proper.

I致e been most of these places before, but kids wanted to see NO, Vegas is a base for a day trip to South Rim, Palm Springs haven稚 been for 20 odd years and DL I致e never been to.

Im going to do what 銑odge Guys did and hike it up to the Hollywood Sign and Observatory also.

I always admired Reagan and the library tells his and Nancy痴 life story really well as you walk a route through the building, passing a replica of the Oval Office.

All the stories come flooding back, Detente, SALT treaty, the Berlin Wall, Second hand rose Nancy, The air traffic controllers strike and Reagan痴 dealing with it, etc.

You then enter a huge hall with walkthroughs of his Presidential B707 and also Marine 1, his Cavalcade, the pub where he met the O坦eagans in Ireland etc. There is also a fair bit on his relationship with Margaret and Gorby.

You then finish at the grave of Ron and Nancy, close to which is a life size bronze statue of Ron on a Horse, as he spent his later years on his ranch.

It is absolutely brilliant, on the top of a hill and with magnificent views.

I went to New Orleans many years ago (40 years ago) as a very young Soldier. We sailed a 55 foot yacht from St Petes to New Orleans via Key West after driving down non stop from Washington D.C. We arrived unfortunately on the morning after Mardi Gras. To be fair, I was too young to appreciate it and simply got p***ed for 3 days as squaddies do. Preservation hall was good, though!

It does cover the 阻ust say no campaign.. I believe that there were pictures and mention of the Grange Hill cast.

They do also have an F117 Stealth fighter and an F14 Tomcat (Gulf of Sidra incident), if that floats your boat!

That's it I am going!

Have you been to the newer aerospace museum near Washington (its actually near the airport in Virginia?) That is brilliant if you like your planes- they have the first ever passenger jet, Blackbird, the Enola Gay, and the space shuttle.
