Just booked into Ft. Lauderdale. $100 cheaper RT to go into Lauderdale than Ft Myers. Plus I got 2 direct flights instead of stopovers. Saved enough to get the rental car free. Rental car rates are much better out of the high volume Lauderdale than the sleepy Ft. Myers.

My sis called yesterday. She's setting up a family gathering in South Florida. In May. Looks like I'm going on an unexpected trip.

I actually get to central Florida all the time but for business not pleasure.

Just got a new used car, heyheyhey. Now I can feel relaxed with taking a car trip without fear of breaking down.

I'm going to take a short excursion up to northern Vermont or Maine for end of season spring skiing.

Also, both Southwest and the car rental companies have been filling my inbox with offers, coupons and specials. Spring is apparently a slow season (other than for skiers) and they are looking to fill seats.

Late winter / early spring is without exception the best ski conditions. From March 1st to mid April or later the mountains are at their peak. The best. Plus the energy is in the air of a new season, you can feel it.

Best time to travel. I like to take a week and combine one or two (or more) ski mountain jaunts out west with something touristy , like visiting the Grand Canyon.

Haven't gone to the beach yet. But a train trip sounds interesting. I been checking out getting a rail pass and maybe trying one of the classic routes. Maybe "City of New Orleans" or the "Empire Builder"

Spring is just around the corner
Taking Amtrak to Washington for Cherry Blossom festival..really cheap. Cheaper than I can drive and found a reasonable hotel close to train station.
Going to be a museum weekend.

I can't afford vacation travel this year, except maybe camping & hiking in the national forests right here in Oregon (which, come to think of it, is a pretty awesome vacation).

Mid April traveling to Fort Worth, TX. I don't like driving through Oklahoma so I'll go by way of Nashville from Canton MI. I usually get 45 mpg (diesel) with my 2010 VW Jetta TDI SportWagen with the cruise set at 65 mph.

::::.have fun and don't break a leg. I know you are suppose to say break a leg, but afraid that might happen::::


Thats a skier's injury, snowboarders never break a leg, but they do commonly break their wrists though ...Its a very benign sport, hard to get injured unless you hit a tree or something.
