Default Best QRP bands ?

Planning on getting one of the low cost QRP CW transceiver kits. Have not been on the air for several years, and wondering which band or bands would be the best place to get active again. What bands are used the most, which ones are now open and which ones are best during the various sun spot cycles? Have lots of room and plan on putting up a 160 M, horizontal loop that I hope will work on most if not all the normal 10 to 160M bands. I hope to be able to do DXing. --- What are your favorite bands and why? -- Suggestions?
