Vacations! That's one of the reasons I work so I can afford to take them. They seem to give me a major attitude adjustment. Still send the family away once in a while but I try and go with them most of the time.
Idea of Vacation = anywhere but home and without the tools or computer. (The phone is O.K. if you press mute no one can here the blender going)
Where & What = Vegas Come on BOX CARS!!
Or Idaho & Wyoming during hunting season a new one for me (I am now on a quest Can anyone teach me to shoot straight?)
Mexico is also great caught me a marlin last year in Cabo San Lucas. A cruise to Mexico is also a lot of Fun. Used to do some skiing in the winter but that has become too painful on the knees and ankles.
How Long = We try and do at least 1 7 to 10 day trip per year and as many 3 or 4 day trips on long holiday weekends as possible. Some with the kids some without. During Hunting the wife and kids go to visit family.
My new kind of vacation is slowly becoming a spectator of youth sporting events and tournaments. What happened to 1 or 2 games a week?
