No summer vacation due to the kids' activites. Counting the days to our (no kids) Hawaii trip in November.

We booked a rental house and airline tickets to Maine (and more specifically the Acadia National Park area) for late summer with our kids and grandson last weekend!

I've been to Acadia, Island. It was gorgeous. Will you be taking a whale watching tour (I highly recommend)?

No summer plans for me.

I work remotely so in the summer we go to visit family in KY and PA and I work from there for a month or two. Allows my son to get some solid family time with is grand parents, cousins, aunts and uncles. This year we're going to Chicago over July 4th for some friends 20 year anniversary so that should be fun. I think we'll do some weekend trips to Lego Land and Disney or Universal for our son, but probably will take a cruise in October or November.

we're doing a family trip to Yellowstone, the wife found a cabin on a huge ranch on VRBO to stay at. Plus the in-laws own a brewery near where we're staying. Should be a good time!

We are road tripping from WA state to San Antonio, TX with stops in Idaho, Utah, Arizona, and New Mexico. Fortunately, we will have a motorhome, so it should be a little better than traveling in a car.

My wife & I are spending a few days with some friends in the Pocono Mountains in Pennsylvania. One day will include a float trip (trout fishing) on the Delaware River.

Later this summer, we're driving from Nebraska to Glacier National Park in Montana. We'll spend 4 days in the park. On the way to or from we'll also see The Little Bighorn battlefield (Custer's last stand), Yellowstone, and many other beautiful things along the way.

We are headed to Whitefish Montana early in August for a wedding, spending a couple days in that area, a night in Glacier National Park and then heading up to Banff for four days.

I was planning on going to Vegas in July for the World Series of Poker, but I just got a jury summons that runs from July - Sept. I don't think wanting to go gamble is a permissible excuse for dismissal crazy

I'm going to play in some of the events. Definitely not the Main Event (the $10,000 buy-in is a bit rich for my blood). I'll play in some of the smaller events in the $500 - $1500 buy-in range and hope to cash in at least one to make money or at least come out even.

TMatt87, that's pretty cool. I play it on my phone a decent amount, but when I get a nice size wallet I invariably put a large bet on getting that last card for my flush, and I flush my wallet down the tubes, ugh.

Where I am supposed to be
No summer trip but going on a fishing trip to Lake Vermillion in northern MN with my father-in-law in September. Family cruise over Christmas (just me, Mrs. PP and our son). Also, living in our park model trailer (think tiny home) at the lake for the summer then maybe road tripping until our cruise in FL, then more road tripping after the cruise, working our way west along the gulf coast until need to be back in MN March 1.

Working remotely has some perks.

You would think - but it wasn't true a couple of years ago when we went to NYC! It was 95 in NYC and 103 in TX - and TX felt cooler because of the lack of humidity. Hopefully it won't be so hot in New England though.

About 8 years ago, my brother, my son and I flew to Portland, Maine in mid-June. The day we flew out, it was 96 degrees here. Stepped off the plane (sun still out, not nighttime) and it was 57 degrees. (It did warm up from there.....the 4 days we were there after that were highs about 75 or so...beautiful.)

ETA: I almost didn't close my parentheses.....can't be air-conditioning the whole paragraph.

I'm curious to know the level of success you've had with sign-ups for this cruise. It seems like a tough sell to executives or the board. My boss wanted to submit this request as an April Fool's joke (we have a very stingy CFO).

In our survey in September 2018, over 200 replied they would be on the ship, so we booked a larger ship to accommodate. We are short of that. As you said, it's been a tough sell to exec's. There's still room and we're still going to sail. It's very practical when you think about the cost of losing, food, etc. at a conference. The cruise has all of that included and we're going to have 20 hours of training (that's 2 ½ days at a conference).

I guess it comes down to trust. Do your exec's trust the compliance officer.

It's also ironic that many Sr. Mgt / Board conferences are held in Hawaii, Vegas, etc.

So, I assume there is a casino involved?

Why, yes. I believe the ship has a casino. It probably depends on how good of a gambler you are. wink

Don't know if anyone saw David's cruise promotion video where he asked viewers to vote on whether he should teach in business attire or swim trunks. I vote that he should go full Speedo (since I won't be on the cruise).

I just got back from a 2 week vacation with Glacier National Park being the main destination. Wow! It's a beautiful park. If you haven't been there, put it on your list. The gem of the entire part is "Many Glacier" area on the north east side of the park. It's breathtaking.

If you go, you need to book lodging 1 year in advance. Stay at this place and you'll think you're in Switzerland:

I just returned from a trip to San Diego and Palm Springs, which included spending time at Joshua Tree National Park.

Although the it was 108 degrees, the scenery was beautiful. My goal is to try to get to as many of the National Parks as I can.

Next year we are retuning to Sturgis for the 80th anniversary so back to the Badlands and also I missed the Wind Cave NP last time so that is a must this time.

Don't think I reported back on our experience with Oshkosh in July. It was a fantastic trip and everything I was hoping for from an aviation perspective. We spent five days on the field seeing thousands of planes as well as hundreds of aviation-related vendors, and attending classes and workshops. Miles and miles of walking (averaged about 20,000 steps per day). Camping beside the plane each night for five nights and waking up and doing some more. Got most of my questions answered on what I'm going to need and a plan of action for upgrading my panel to IFR and glass. Spending time with thousands of other pilots and aviation enthusiasts. Airshows every day, including appearances by both the Blue Angels and Thunderbirds. Night air show on Wed night (didn't stay for the Sat night airshow), including the best fireworks display I've ever seen. If you are interested in photos, here's a link to EAA's photos - the first 30 pages are from this year's show - https://www.flickr.com/photos/eaaairventureoshkosh/page1. Over 10,000 airplanes at KOSH and surrounding airports. Attendance over 645,000 over the seven days of the show. Can't wait for next July to do it all over again.

In the upper left quadrant, you'll see two large yellow shower trailers. Just to the right of those trailers (as you are looking at them) and just toward the bottom of the picture from them, you'll see a small yellow and white plane parked next to a maroon and white plane. The yellow and white plane is my RV-6A.

Jim - i would imagine with over 10,000 planes the logistics of take off and landing must be crazy...to you have to schedule ahead with an approximate time of arrival?

Happy, no scheduling (other than for IFR flight plan arrivals, and those are relatively rare) needed. There is a very tightly orchestrated arrival procedure that everyone is supposed to fly that is published a couple of months in advance of the event. It basically involves everyone coming in get into a conga line 1/2 mile apart nose to tail flying at 1,800' and at a speed not to exceed 90kts at a point about 20 miles away and all flying the same specified route with air traffic control guidance along the way. You have to experience it to fully appreciate it but if you Google "Fisk Arrival" and look at the videos that come up, there are some pretty cool ones.
