Tourism is a pretty strong economic indicator here in Maine. It's been down for the last few years. This year however, reservations, bookings and projections are up - pretty substantially. I blame Obama.

In other vacation news, my summer trip will only be my bi-annual trip out to Minnesota and Wisconsin to visit my Dad, my sisters, etc. My daughter's riding with me.

What are your vacation plans?

I like the way Minnesotans say Minnesota.

Also perhaps I shall be going to Visit family in Cork this summer. However, that depends on how quickly I recover from my upcoming surgery. I'm getting a bionic hand.

There's a twenty-four hour gym with an Olympic sized pool around here, so probably going to spend time there and start teaching the little one how to swim before the patio/endless pool combo is finished.

We have a long July weekend planned for Michigan along the lake. Rented a house since hotel stays with the baby are always touch-and-go and we thought a house would give us more room, a quiet place for him to sleep and less concern for the neighbors if he starts acting like an upset 19 month old.

Since I switched jobs, I only have a week worth of vacation for the first year and want to save a couple days for the Christmas holiday so that's about it for extended plans.

E3 (Los Angeles) and the wedding (Hawaii) make up my de facto vacations this year. Though I've taken a couple Fridays off to go to our friends beach house in Margate, NJ.

My family used to vacation in Ogunquit, Maine every summer. Beautiful place. Pity the water was frigid, but I suppose that also kept it from getting too crowded.

I have to have re-surgery at some point this summer and will be out of commission for about 10 days total, so that is going to effectively be my staycation. I call it re-surgery because I had this surgery last year and didn't give it enough time to heal and now I have to have the surgery again. Yay me!

I have no plans. Summer is the busiest time of year for us, so I'll be too busy otherwise. Maybe an extended weekend here or there. Likely bring the family along on some work road trips.

We got into the habit in years past of taking three-day weekends here and there when able as opposed to week-long holidays and it's worked out pretty well. I like having more frequent trips to look forward to, even if they are shorter.

Eske, where in Hawaii are you getting hitched?

Since we moved out here and I started this job in March, I don't have any vacation time. I'm taking two unpaid weeks over Christmas to go home and see the fam. My new job is sending me to Honolulu to take a non-profit accounting seminar, but I'll literally be flying in, sitting in a hotel conference room for 8 hours with a small lunch break, then flying home. :( I wish I could have more time out there but we can't really afford it right now.

Plan to avoid the beaches a week after full moons. Not a very good time to go for a swim.

No plans for "vacation," but a few trips. If I get lucky I'll be going to E3 in LA next week for ZAM. In September my best friend is getting married in MA and I get to be the best man. Other than those two there are tentative trips to head down to Key West with some friends later this summer.

I have some very vague plans for something bigger. I usually take a week-long vacation during the summer to visit MA and my old high school friends and family; but most people have moved away, so I'm debating renting a cottage on the Gulf coast side of FL (have a family member who is a realtor on Ana Maria Island). But my lease is up August 1st, so I need to find somewhere new to live... and itching at the back of my mind is finding a new job as well. I might up and leave Gainesville, but I need to find employment first, which would **** with my vacation time. At my current job I have like 5 weeks of vacation I haven't had a chance to use, so... I also have an idea that it would be great to find a new job, tell them I can't start until mid-August, line up an apartment, and then spend some weeks traveling Europe. I have several thousand bucks set aside for something big, and that would be a blast.

Basically I need to sit down, figure my sh*t out, and then make some decisions. But usually when I sit down I tend to play games >_> **** you, lack of self-restraint!

My family used to vacation in Ogunquit, Maine every summer. Beautiful place. Pity the water was frigid, but I suppose that also kept it from getting too crowded.


I can tell you haven't been recently. We're there fairly often. It actually is frequently crowded these days. With **** men. Not sure when that evolution took place, but it's fairly well ensconced as Provincetown North these days. Have no fear, though, OOB is still the prime location to see hairy Quebecois men in speedos, along with their very large and crunchy haired women.

Ah, yeah last I was there was over 10 years ago, but you could see the beginnings of that trend. Hell, now that I think about it, it's probably the reason my parents stopped taking us. Smiley: rolleyes

OOB will be unrecognizable if you've not been there in a couple years. Many of the old beach hotels and shops burned. A new set of condos was built right in front of the pier. The batting cages are gone, but the amusement park is still there. And while you can still overhear the funny-french canadian speak all up and down the beach, there is nary a speedo to be seen.

I'm pretty comfortable with it being unrecognizable for the rest of my life. When I see signs for camping in French, I just drive the other way until I haven't seen an Irving for 50 miles.

I'm on vacation right now. Sorta. Mostly consisting of me sitting around the house and attending to stuff that I don't normally take the time for. I had a grand scheme to drive up to Julian for some pie last week, but there was some sort of wildfire going on there, so I figured that was a bad idea. What it did do was bookend the yearly family memorial day event, so it didn't end out nearly as exhausting a holiday as usual. Not having to go to work the day after we did a big nature hike and day at the park was really nice (sunburn bad!). Oh... And unbeknownst to us, the little park we choose happened to be right next to the local VFW and someone decided to land helicopters there. Including a pretty cool military one. Was a great bonus for the kids, even the older ones. Smiley: smile

Sadly, this weeks days off will be short since I have Jury duty starting tomorrow. Should be fun though. Oddly enough, this is the first time I've actually been called in for duty. Every time before this, I get one of the standby notices, check it each day for a week, and never have to come down. Funny thing is I was talking to a friend of mine just a couple months ago about this, and he lamented that he *always* got summoned and had to spend a day or more. Apparently, I ticked off the god of karma with that one.

Two is pretty young. The family Disney trip we did my kids were on the verge of 4 and 7. I'll never forget my son spotting Baloo walking around the park at Disney, dashing to him and getting swept up in his faux-fur arms. It was Kodak moment [:tear:]. Too bad I didn't have a Kodak.

Anyways, it was a fun time, but budget-breaking for a young family. We maxed out our credit card.

We're already done with the Big Trip (which was Tokyo) last week. Due to my summer schedule, his summer schedule, and then the start up of fall schedule in August, we won't get another stab at a big vacay this year. We talked about perhaps a weekend in Vegas if we're really bored, and we'll probably flee to the mountains at least once during the hottest days, but we won't have more than 3-4 days off concurrently until Christmas break.

He was closer to 3 than 2 (32 months to be exact) and he was completely aware of what was going on. He was able to name most of his favorite characters and had a great time. I don't regret spending the money or taking the trip at all. It would have been nice if I hadn't been separated from my wife so I could have had more help with my son than my mom, but overall it wasn't bad. The only thing is, no trip to Disney World can in any way be considered a relaxing vacation.

Now, I'm going to use up another 7 days of paid time off to have surgery. Granted, I'll get to relax more, but not exactly for the reason I want to.

We went in October 2001. About five weeks after 9/11. The entire park was deserted and you just walked up to a ride and got on or walked up to a character and snapped some photos with your kids. The park staff seemed thrilled that someone was willing to risk Al'Qaeda bombing the Magic Kingdom and spend a few bucks.

What I'm saying is to try and plan your vacations around major terrorist attacks.

Smiley: glare We did our DC vacation trip in 2002. The White House, even the lawn, was still inaccessible. The Washington Monument had only limited access. Security was out of control. I think i had to have my bag searched to get a hot dog from the cart out on the mall.

When we go to florida now, we get free access to any of the disney parks with vip passes for parking and transport. We usually limit it to one day at Epcot with maybe a brief excursion to one of the other parks for a thrilling ride (I <3 Tower of Terror). We take no kids and have no need to see lots or do lots. I laugh inside at the stressed parents being drug along by crazed kids. My only demand when we go is to indulge in patries at Frenchland.

It's pretty relaxing.

I think the issue with taking a young child to a huge place like that is that they aren't likely to remember it. My parents took me to Disney Land for my 3rd birthday, and I don't remember it at all. The pictures are nice though. My earliest memories are from my 4th birthday party.

If I'm lucky, I'll be able to cajole my parents into helping me take a trip up to Eugene around my birthday in August. I haven't seen any of my Eugene friends since December, And it's been almost two months now since I saw my boyfriend last.

As we're talking about Disney...

Did a day trip down to Animal Kingdom two weeks ago to meet up with my college roommates (one was visiting from PA). Wasn't really a vacation as Orlando is like 2 hours away, but I guess it sorta goes with the theme of the thread?


... in sad news, I won't be going to E3 this year Smiley: frown The company who wanted to sponsor someone couldn't get the funding for it. I'm actually a lot more bummed out than I thought I would be. Ah well. One of these days I'll get to go to a gaming convention for ZAM. Next time, Gadget... next time!

I would totally pay money to go to a Sesame Street theme park.
You'd have to spend a lot just getting directions. Smiley: mad

I'd say it's worth experiencing at least once in your life. My parents took me a second time when I was 10, and I have a lot of good memories from that trip.

Me and a few trends did the Disney trip our freshman year of college. We had a blast. I remember getting the chick who does the tour at The Living Seas at Epcot to take us up and see the dolphins getting trained. We had a four day pass that let us visit Magic Kingdom, Epcot, and Universal (I think) then one of those parks a second time. We went to the Magic Kingdom twice and the second time we were so exhausted I remember sitting on the monorail for almost an hour just waiting on the next shuttle to our hotel. I also remember the voice doing the announcing sounded a lot like Troy McClure from The Simpsons.

I'd be happier if I thought this was someone new and not a sock.
