Weekly Poll 6/2/2008

Now that it's June and we are moving into a summer mode I was wondering what everyone was doing for vacation. What are you doing this summer with gas prices sky high? Are you even going on vacation? What are your travel plans? Where are you going? I created a small list and posted them but please feel free to tell us what you are doing even if it's not listed. Vote for as many as you want.

Thank you to my buddy MickyT for the suggestion!

First comment, oh my gosh by golly I am amazed.
I'm glad you had my option what is a vacation....

Sassy Mama Bear said...

Oh, should Uncle Sam ever grace us with our refund while the kids are away at camp husband and I might sneak off for a mini vacation which will most likely be camping.

Dana said...

We've got two vacations planned this year, one with all six of us flying to San Antonio, and one with just Cam and I driving to Washington State (still cheaper than flying). Both vacations involve visiting family so other than travel expenses,, the cost is fairly low.

Micky-T said...

Were heading up to New England to a huge gathering of old friends 08-08-08 and we'll stay with family. Not really a vacation, more of a big visit!
I think people up north should think hard about spending to much this summer, lest you forget how much it's going to cost you to heat your house this winter.

Doc said...

We are traveling to see family too. As a matter of fact we will be up north for 08-08 too.

BTW - Sorry for misspelling "continent" over in the poll.

Doc: How close to the NH seacoast?

That is if you can find it, it's only 13 miles long. Ha!

Doc said...

We will be at the end of Long Island. Near Montaulk....

Dianne said...

I prefer going away in the fall. Usually visit friends in Boston.

Summer vacation is usually just a weekend at AC or maybe some time right here on the lovely Jersey Shore.

When you run your own business it's hard to get away.

We are going to Myrtle Beach for a week...hold me!

Sassy Mama Bear said...

Hey guys there is something waiting for you over at The Cafe!

Well, technically I will be doing many of these things although only one is considered vacation. Hubby and I will be taking the Chiles up to WI to stay with the grandparents for a month. So that is visiting family. However, I don't necessarily deem that a vacation b/c I won't get to do anything "fun" such as visit different places. I am taking a group of youth on a mission trip to PA also which will include a fun activities like a theme park. Hubby and I might get a little time to ourselves amidst all the running around so that may be the only actual vacation!

Jay said...

I will probably be taking my vacation in beautiful, exotic, mysterious .... Omaha Nebraska.

I know you only WISH you could do something as exciting!

WNG said...

I'm getting my friends and family to come visit me here at the beach for long weekends. I'm sneaky and cheap like that :)
There's a family reunion in MA at the end of Aug as well (catching a ride w/Mama G...and the cheap goes on...)

Leighann said...

You guys forgot "Avoid Family".... that's my type of vacation!!

Cammy said...

I answered "vacation, what's that?"

I'll probably try to combine business with pleasure. I'm heading to DC at the end of August for business. Will probably take in some sights while I'm there.

Then, in the fall, I have a conference in New Mexico during the balloon festival.

Cammy said...

Dana, I'm sure you'll have fun in San Antonio. I loved it there when I went a year or so ago. Make sure to go to Dick's Last Resort on the River Walk. I had a blast!

Leighann said...

Of course....

The minute I tell Shane that Blogger sucks ass and hasn't been loading for shit for me today, the page pops right up!!

Message from Shane -- He thinks he may have been blocked from the blog at work. He wants you all to know that he's not ignoring anyone!

He also wants you to know that he thinks I ROCK!!

:p

Karen said...

I will be heading to the Jersey Shore a bunch of times. My dear old daddy has a place down there so I will be taking advantage of that.

Anndi said...

Chicklet and I will spend two weeks down South. :)

As American as Apple Pie said...

Blogger has been tempermental for me also. I think it has PMS.

Yes, Shane is having probs at work, Vin is not at work and I was not prepared to post anything so sorry for the boring day.

Hopefully tomorrow will be better!

Anndi said...

Can I go on record saying I hate Kyle Busch?

Betty said...

Might go to Little Rock for a reunion with some college friends. We have been meeting annually for a while. Otherwise, might visit with family.

Lu' said...

We are taking several small RV trips and one car trip because the RV is too costly for the short trip. What will be doing on all these trips? That is right trapshooting; PULL!

WomensDaily said...
