    Does anyone have anything booked or planned?

    My wife and I are going with her Sister and Husband to Marriott Ocean Point in Palm Beach Shores, FL. Had to be in the summer(July) because her sister is a teacher but it should be a great time.

    Best part is...it was almost free, just had to pay a total of $70 a couple for Airlines taxes and fee's. All my travel for work paid for 2 airline tickets(first class on the way home) and 1 week in a 2 bedroom suite.

    Her sister and husband just had to pay the airlines fees/taxes as well as they each got US Airway Master Cards with 40,000 points. It should be a hell of a trip.

    what do you guys got going on?

    I'm 90% sure I'm going to the pikes peak race to see Wil and suffer oxygen loss. I have some family out that way as well that I plan to see (an aunt and cousins). Depends on flight costs. so far they look reasonable but i'm not ready to commit/book yet.

    I'll probably do the sunrise at mt Washington again.

    I'll probably go camping a few long weekends.

    I'll probably go to a lake for a long weekend.

    No big vacations planned yet but...

    Road Trip to California to see some family and hit up some breweries/wine country.
    Trip to Colorado.
    Most likely a weekend in vegas like last year.
    Lots of camping.

    Ideally, I'm going to try and go somewhere tropical for a week with the s/o. Depends on our living arrangement and finances so haven't booked anything yet.

    Newport, RI for my wedding in the summer if it all works out with the venue. Not sure if we are doing a honey moon this year, or do one next year funds are tight. We might go away for a few days after if we can find a dog sitter.

    When I land my next 30k contract, you won't see my ass for at least a week. Wife and I gotta get away at some point before the little one comes.

    Ritz Carlton, Dessert Springs California in March. She'll head back to Montana in August and we'll do some other small trips. Maybe a long weekend to Florida.

    Just got back from IA deer hunting and snowmobiling. In Feb I am headed to Colorado for skiing. I might make a last minute trip to Lake Placid for skiing if the conditions are looking amazing. This summer I'll go on the annual midwest cabrewing & camping trip with college friends. Over the 4th, I'll try to take 2 weeks off to drive out west and back for camping and hiking. I'll be coming through DEN right around when the Pikes Peak racing occurs. Honda has a team going. Might be a good opportunity to meet B and Wil. I'll also try to fit in a trip to Nashville to visit family.

    I assume I'll be making several trips to Detroit, LA, and maybe China for work.

    You got any plans while youre in town? You should book a fishing charter or two. If you need any advice about anything, let me know. I live literally about two miles from where you are staying.


    As far as vacations for me... The wife and I are going to Orlando for 3 days coming up here soon. Just a little getaway for the two of us, something we never do. Then im going to do my usual spring bass fishing trip in early march, not sure where exactly yet, somewhere in central to north FL. This is my favorite vacation every year... get away from civilization (and wife), primitive camp for several days to a week, catch bass out of a small boat, fuck with some gators, drink lots of beer any time of day, chew tobacco, smoke cigars, maybe shoot some guns, etc. with my best friend since childhood.
