    Staycation? Working through to pay off last Christmas? Taking the single-malt tour of the Scottish highlands? What's on your docket?

    Next month we are sailing with Princess on our 38th cruise, then a week at Cocoa Beach, then driving to Maine for the summer to enjoy our little cabin up there. We work on a lot of projects there, have a garden, go kayaking, visit with family & friends, enjoy lots of campfires with lots of adult beverages. After September apple-picking & foliage, we head back to Florida. Can't wait!

    Seattle first week of July for 5 nights.

    Madison, WI (3 nights) at the end of August for the Taste of Madison & the Farmers Market that same weekend.

    So many summer festivals around here in summer that we enjoy.

    Polishfest, Irishfest, Germanfest, Strawberry Fest, Bastille Days and of course Summerfest.

    Booked for Oct Vegas and then most likely Thanksgiving & Christmas, but nothing booked so far until SWA opens up that part of the calender.

    We go on vacation between Sept / Oct and May. We stay at home and work all summer.

    We normally have 3 holidays in the pipeline, but we have taken them all apart from our annual pilgrimage to Vegas in May. We usually do a cruise in the Med in October, Benidorm in Spain for Xmas and New Year, Tenerife or somewhere in Spain in February and Vegas in May.

    Fishing trips and fishing trips and more fishing trips. Spring to October I spend alot of my weekends fishing for different things, salmon, walleye, catfish, halibut, lingcod, crappie, perch, and bass. I might take a trip back to New York and Vermont with my dad in July, then the girlfriend and I will be going to New Orleans in September or October. I might have to do a Vegas trip if I get a new job here soon.

    It's the first year that I can spend the whole summer at our cabin as I recently retired. It's like the polar opposite of being in Las Vegas! We built this little cabin over the last four years during our vacation time in Maine.

    It's feminine - La Tour Eiffel:peace:

    We don't usually do summer vacations. Too many kids & we prefer cheaper shoulder season travel. We already went to Orlando - half business, half leisure, back in February. Our big vacation this year will be in December - Christmas Market river cruise, Nuremburg - Basel. Over the summer we're doing some shorter trips - I have a work trip to Portland (OR) in May and we'll extend a few days to see family & drink good beer (my husband is coming with me - I'm sure while I'm working he'll be drinking more of the good beer:beer:). DC to visit with my college roommates though ironically most of us are skipping the reunion and meeting another weekend. My mom's NC mountain cabin at some point. A trip to MKE to visit my baby nephew (and his parents, my sister & BIL). Maybe another long weekend or two....

    No fly-fishing for trout? Outside of lighting a bonfire on a river bank and cat fishing until the sun comes up this is my favorite way to enjoy fishing.

    We will head up to northern Minnesota a few times during the summer for some fishing and relaxation. Possibly a camping trip or two. Similar to Joe's comment, there are a TON of festivals around here so that is always a great time. This may sound silly but I also deliver pizza a few nights a week just for extra Vegas cash. The tips are plentiful and our next Vegas trip isn't until December so that gives me plenty of time. I find this to be a good solution for extra vacation cash since we have 2 young children (that can make adult vacations less frequent).

    Hoya, let me know when you're in MKE. It would be neat to meet a board member somewhere other than Vegas. And we know several good micro brewers in the area.:beer:

    April-Vegas and Tahoe for 2 weeks
    May-S Dakota to see the wild west and some NP's
    Sept.- Canadian Rockies (Calgary, Banff, Jasper and Glacier NP

    Summer isn't planned yet but I'm sure there'll be another Vegas trip in there somewhere.

    Josie, have you been to Best Friends? We've volunteered there several times and I can't wait to get back.
