Rent a car somewhere and drive around the state and region. Last time I did this was in Phoenix, and I drove all over New Mexico, up to Santa Fe, down to Lincoln (the Billy the Kid museum was closed that day, unfortunately), and back into Arizona in the SE corner of the state to see Chiracahua Nat'l Monument.

Find a book about the area and read it in the evenings when I've found a motel. I've read about Sternwheels on the Yukon, the California Gold Rush, and a few other fascinating things doing this.


On my last vacation, I spent a great deal of time thinking about an old friend. I miss that friend more and more every day.

I like to work on vacation. Mostly at building things, whether furniture or houses or anything in between. As long as I can sit back at the end of a long day with a cold beverage and see something that wasn't there when I started. Something tangible, that you can point to if someone should inquire as to whether your place on this earth was wasted that day. Sometimes it's nice to get back to work and have a rest. ;-)

I just got back from Cape Cod on June 30th. Spent a week there. Saw 3 CCBL league games in Chatham, Dennisport & Harwich. Going to CCBL games is a high point, going running through new neighborhoods on the Cape. Roaming through bookstores looking for Nautical/maritime historical themed books, this years purchase "Leviathan" The History of Whaling in America by Eric Jay Dolin. Last but not least ordering New England Clam Chowdah with every meal (sans breakfast) PJH Troy, NY

Lance, multiple-tagging, who knew. I think the puns on meme alone validate the phenomenon.
