Hey @thumperguy, what a great idea. I love the "top my fantasy" concept. Let's share our dreams of places to go and thrills to experience. I've merged your post with this discussion that @bridgegoddess started in the COVID-19 group.

While we might safe in place, it doesn't limit our mind's explorations and we can even use technology to explore places we've yet to travel to. I like that you've added the tactile to the visual. Yes, I've traveled on "washboard" rutted unpaved road. Not a journey one wants to make at high-speed that's for sure. You brought to mind a memory that a tour guide painted for a group of us visiting Utah when she showed us the well worn ruts of the oxen carts and covered wagons that the early settlers left when moving west. That was certainly not the luxury travel that we have come to expect today.

Where does your next fantasy or exploration of the unknown take you?

Bridgegoddess. What a great idea!! Just visiting those places we’ve always wanted to explore reminded me of a wonderful Christmas gift I received when I was young. A stereopticon of sorts … I think it was called a “view master”. You looked into it and inserted slides on a wheel and turned the lever to see new and exciting pictures of other countries and cultures. The view master created a 3D image that made you feel like you were actually there. I spent many enjoyable hours looking at snow capped peaks and waterfalls as well as native Indian reservations of the northwest and meadows of tulips and sunflowers. What wonderful memories that you brought up for me. Thank you
