I can't remember if it has been posted or not. If it has I apologize.
I will start...
For my 15th wedding anniversary, my wife and I are going on a week long cruise out of Galveston, TX and going to Montego Bay, Jamaica, Grand Cayman Islands, and Cozumel, Mexico. We have been on 2 other cruises before but this year we sprung for the cabin with the balcony on the starboard side.
Anyone else have big vacation plans?

My parents-in-law have asked us to go with them on a South Africa tour. They just got back from a rail tour of the area last week, and my wife went with them to visit her Peace Corps sister-in-law two years ago. I'm curious about going, but the price (about $3,000 each) is discouraging.

Probably will take the kids for the very first time to Niagra Falls and also see the historical sites in Philadelphia and Valley Forge.
Then later in August I'll be taking the family and visiting my friend and his family in Virginia Beach for a few days, then maybe stay a couple of nights in Ocean City, Md. on the way home. Maybe also spend the day seeing the sites in Washington D.C.

Nothing definite yet, but we're talking about a big ass roadtrip. Starting in Fitchburg, we'd go first to Cooperstown, then out to Syracuse (to check out the school there...I heard a rumor they might have a semi-decent communications program), then down along the Great Lakes to Cleveland and Chicago (catching games at Jacobs Field and Wrigley, and if the Sox are in town to play the other Sox that place too), then back kinda horizontally so that we can head for Gettysburg, Baltimore and Washington (maybe seeing the Nats play at RFK, definitely taking in a game at Camden). Of course, exactly zero (0) percent of this is guaranteed, but it would be totally awesome.
This will get added at the end of each post you make, below an horizontal line. This should preferably be kept to a small enough size.

This graduate of that communications school might agree with that rumor. Of course it's been (gasp)14 years - so I don't know how it is now.
In a couple weeks I'm going to the National Sweepstakes Convention (for people who enter sweepstakes as a hobby)in Scottsdale, Arizona. Yeah, Arizona in late June. At least we'll be indoors most of the time. I'm going to see the Diamondbacks play the Angels while there.

Baseball roadtrip w/ 2 buddies. We'll fly into Chicago, then drive immediately to St. Louis. From there, we go to Kansas City, then back to Chicago. We'll hit up the Royals, Cardinals (vs. Phillies), and finally the White Sox. In addition, we'll probably also take in the Negro League Hall of Fame, the Field of Dreams field, some college campuses in that area (U. of Illinois, U. of Iowa), and whatever else looks like fun to do along the way. Maybe a minor league game or 2. All over the course of a week.
I was born in St. Louis, but moved to Miami when I was two and have lived in Florida pretty much ever since. I've been working for newspapers in one capacity or another since I was 14 and it is without competition the love of my life.
