We will be heading North during the hot summer months. I just hope the cost of gasoline starts to drop. Hard on us retirees.

I would like to go to Maine for a family reunion in July.  But husband is just about to graduate from college, so hopefully he will be working again.  With a new job, he probably won't have any vacation.  That doesn't even factor in the expenses for travel either.  I don't think I will ever be able to retire....sigh....

We have traveled every summer; when younger we would just get in the car and "go"  and more recently we took some wonderful cruises (Alaska twice, Europe thee times) but my surgery last year pretty much put an end to that - all of our vacation funds got eaten up by the odds and ends that our insurance didn't cover.  With gas prices at 4.00 a gallon I doubt we will do much this year, even though I'm feeling up to getting out and going again - still trying to recover from "sticker shock" of a hospital stay!

We are taking a road trip to San Diego in May.  We are also planning a trip to Maui in September (after the kids are back in school) and just signed up for a cruise from New York around the Carribean and end up in Ft. Lauderdale in late October.  This is why we don't have pets.   Oh,and we also will go to our condo at Tahoe for a few weekends this summer.

Hi Ann,That is the kind of vacations we take anymore,There is no place like home and sleeping in your own bed.We also enjoy a lot of nice restaurants in our area.We still have to check out Iron Chef Michael Simon's restaurants and there are so many great restaurants in the Tremont area and on the lower Westside.We have taken many day trips over the years.Our neighborhood parties will start up again soon and they are a blast.

I would love to take a trip to Maine to visit my friend but don't know if that will be possible given my husbands condition.  Seems to have deteriorated rather quickly this past 3 months or so.  Then again we have the move next week so don't know what effect that will have on plans.
Day by day....
If nothing else it is fun to travel close to home and see things like you were a visitor.

Hi Ann.

We are going to be in NH for just a day or so.  We are heading to the White Mountains region.  We plan on driving the Mt. Washington auto road and seeing several of the attractions near there.

 Pat, I am going to Maine for a family reunion in June.  Already have the tickets. Hopefully the weather will be nice.  We usually go in august and it has been great.  I know June can be cooler and the black flies are still there.
