    Default The Official Summer 2006 Vacation plan thread!

    Ok, I know we are a few months away from vacation time but I need 1 now. We have had almost a solid month of rain and I need to be where it's warm.

    Upon arrival of my tax return we begin planning our summer vaction and will not be taking the 2 yaer old along with us.

    So here's our ideas thus far.

    Hawaii, Cruise to Cabo from LA, Southen Cali, 3 days in Vegas and drive to Palm Springs for another 4 days or substitute Lake Havasu for Palm Springs,
    South Florida and the Keys or for something really different a few days in Boston with a driving tour thru New Hampshire, Vermont and fly home out of Maine.

    Opinions??? And also where are you planning on taking some R & R at this year.

    i took June 26th-29th off, put that with my regularly scheduled days off and that gives me two weeks off. i probably won't go anywhere though, i'm sure i'll have some project to work on. if anything, i'll go a couple hours south and hit the trails with one of the Jeeps. a friend of mine relocated to Fargo, i may have to go up there once they get settled.

    working rotating shifts gives me 7 days in a row off every month, so it's like havin' a vacation every month.

    I may go to the USGP in Indianapolis on July 2 and maybe the Nascar race in Chicago the week after. I have never been to an F1 or Nascar race and would love to go. Nothing definite yet... A few "details" need to be worked out first...

    We're planning our usual trip to St Louis to see Sammy and Mike. Its become an annual thing over the last few years. We usually make it a week-long stay with Sammy capping it all off. Believe it or not, St Louis is a pretty happenin' town, great place to party and Sammy always puts on a hell of a show there. He's really big in STL and usually sells out the Riverport (or UMB Bank Pavilion-to me it will always be the Riverport Amphitheatre). Hopefully we'll also hit a couple of other cities on the tour.

    Last 2 weeks of July on Cape Cod. Should be awesome - 2 floor cottage with 1.5 baths, washer/dryer and central air, about 200-300 yards down a private sand road to a private beach. We had the same cottage for a week last year, but they hadn't finished the renovations to add the half bath, washer/dryer and central air. It was great last year, should be even better this year. SWEET!!!

    I don't think I've had two weeks off since I was between jobs for 4 weeks 5 years ago, and even then it wasn't "vacation". Will be an interesting experience - two weeks of pure vegetation.

    Golf, golf, and more golf. Will probably play 7-8 times in the two weeks.

    Might bug out on the middle weekend on the Cape to cruise the Vegas party, we'll see.

    I'll be going to Salt Lake City in July for a convention, and I will be in attendance at any and all nearby appearances of anyone who has at any time been in Van Halen. Besides Gary. Unless he's with another member of VH. Or...

    I bought tickets for Dream Theater. They're playing April 1st @ Radio City Music Hall in NYC. I just need to convince the wife to go to NYC now.
    We should be heading to Vegas for the festivus as well. Besides that, we'll see what else pops up.
