Vacations

42 posts in this topic

I have to share my excitement. I'm going to Punta Cana next month. This will be my first time going out of the country (other than Canada), and my first time flying since I went to Disney World in '95. This will also be my first all-inclusive vacation. I hope I gain ten pounds :yes:

So, where are you guys going?

then back to Naptown for the summer.

You mean Indiana-no-place. :AH-HA_wink: (My friend who went to U of I and then moved back to Broad Ripple told me that one - he went to that high school called Bishop Roncalli (sp?) on the South End).

Ok, for me, two vacations in 2006:

Memorial Day through early June:

Fort Lauderdale/Palm Beach and then Atlanta (1 week + 2 days)

Mid-October

Montreal and Quebec City, Canada (1 week)

In 2007:

Italy, Spain and Portugal (no Europe this year).

I'll be going to Montreal next fall for a week, but I'm not sure if I'm going anywhere this summer since I have an internship and I don't know if they'll give me vacation time. If I do get some time off, I wouldn't mind going to the southwest or somewhere out west.

Roncalli has a great football team and nothing else going for them.

Well, considering which end of Indy they are in, I could see that. :lol:

Mid-October

Montreal and Quebec City, Canada (1 week)

I want to visit Quebec soon as well... I have not been back there since the

late 1990s. Canada is a very cool vacation spot. I esp. love to visit for

wacky reasons like when my family went out there for the Hot Air Balloon

festivals in like 1997.

Here's my tenative scedule:

- April 15th: NYIAS, SpeedingPenguin should be riding shotgun with me in the Datsun

- April 22nd: Datsun/Nissan meet in Buffalo, I'll be going with my buddy Renato.

- July (weekend after 4th): Burnout Contest in Worcester Massachusetts at the Summer Nats.

- Late Summer / early fall: I'll hopefuly be traveling to pick up a 1959 Buick (hardtop)

Other than taht there's bound to be a few dozen 100mph or so

road trips and a few more serious ones. I'd love to visit the

home country (Slovakia) and/or fly or drive out to Arizona to

visit Duffy in Fountain Hills and see the Grand Canyon again.

Hmm...well, the plans are as follows ... whether it'll all work out or not, who knows...nothing as "spectacular" as the 2-week road trips I've taken the last couple years....

June 22-26 ... IL-KY-IN-TN

Thursday ... drive to Nashville TN for the MC Nationals, Friday-Sunday (route TBD).

Sunday ... go to Big Sandy TN for lunch; Jackson TN for dinner (or vice versa).

Monday ... drive home.

July 14-17 ... IN-OH-MD-NJ-DE

Thursday ... in the evening, get a "jump start" to DE for Monte MadneSS, Friday-Sunday.

Sunday ... get a head start on going home, arriving home on Monday.

Not sure which route I'll take (northern, via turnpike; southern, via I-70), but most-likely will make a stop in the Baltimore MD area going and/or coming.

August 11-14 ... IN-OH-PA-MI

Thursday ... drive to IN (near Ft Wayne).

Friday ... drive to OH (near Akron), possibly taking Route 30.

Saturday ... drive to PA for the family reunion that afternoon.

Sunday ... drive to MI for a late dinner.

Monday ... drive home.

October 11-17 ... TX-OK-KS/MO-IA-WI

This'll be the "road trip" (mini, as it is) for 2006...

Tuesday evening ... drive as far south as possible (either via I-57, I-55 or I-39 to I-55).

Wednesday ... drive to Dallas TX, via Little Rock AR.

Thursday ... stay in Dallas area

Friday ... drive up to the Oklahoma City area.

Saturday ... drive to Wichita KS.

Sunday ... via Kansas City, drive to IA (Des Moines area, perhaps).

Monday ... drive to southern WI.

Tuesday ... drive home.

San Antonio this May, then back to Naptown for the summer.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

San Antonio is every married couples dream destination. The Riverwalk is absolutely gorgeous and overall impressive.

Be sure to stop in at Dicks and have a beer and a bite to eat. You won't regret it and ask if the manager is from Canada lol. I convinced that guy to sell me beer when I was 20 visiting Carrie Perry who used to post here and she was 35 lol.

Man those were the days.

Honestly, it's such a blast. Plus the Alamo is nearby as well and a Coyota Joes.

Damn, now I want to go back.

There's a possibilty of a family reunion (dad's side) out in Colorado (near Denver) on the week of July 4th. If it does happen it will be the first time I have ever flown (23years old).

Oh, due to family living there I've done the San Antonio thing before. I'm actually planning on meeting up with this one girl with whom I used to go to Catholic school and haven't seen in years...she ironically enough goes to UT but she said she'll make the drive so we can hang out some. 8)

Do her parents have a license plate frame that says

MY DAUGHTER AND MY MONEY GO TO

T E Y X U S ?

God, I hope not.

Sidebar: it's actually a very respectable school, just too big...over 50,000 students.

Nah, she was originally at Baylor but transferred because she hated it.

Bob, USC is a solid 35,000...I am a big fan of big schools...you cannot get the wide range of course offerings at a smaller school...nor as strong athletic programs...you just cannot.

True the athletic programs suffer at smaller schools, but I prefer them for the lower teacher-to-student ratio. Now that I see how things are at a relatively big school, I'm glad I went to a small school for my undergrad.

This summer I get no real vacation, just more research. I'll probably take a few weeks to relax. But... I will be in Los Alamos in mid-August (more work).

It depends...USC is varied in that regard. Every large lecture is subdivided into "discussion" or "lab" groups of like 15-20. Then I have my managerial accounting and statistics classes where there were no more than 40 people in the class.

I like the bigger lectures though cuz if I wanna skip no one really notices my absence. 8)

I think we're going to SC/NC after I get out of school for the summer. If not there, probably FL, but I'm almost positive we're set on the Carolinas again.

Any time me and XP are bored and my G/F has some Lifetime movie on

we go on these random roadtrips just to burn gas and blast the tunes.

Last night we drove around in Boston for like 4 hours in the Q45. At one

point we were at an intersection with a bunch of college kids hanging

around and some dork on a baby blue Vespa and we had the sunroof &

windowns down while we balsted (at full volume on the Bose System)

AC~DC Back In Black.

Sometimes it's fun to force people to listen to your music, esp. since I'm

forced to listen to that fast-beat micro-machine-announcer-guy quick

spanish music at every intersection in Lowell. That or the Cambodian

music which is even more bizzare to my Semi-ethno-centric ears.

I'll post some funny photos soon of our adventures. :)
