    We haven't been to Myrtle Beach in few years so we are headed back there. I have a great HS friend who lives nearby and still has a great band and they are always playing somewhere that's nice. Gonna check em out again and have a cold one with an ol' friend!

    Where about on the lake?

    MrsC and I will be spending our summer vacations on St Pete Beach.

    9 day at Memorial day and 9 days around July 4th.

    If all goes well we will be there permanently by September.

    Taking a week to go to Gettysburg, York, and Lancaster area in PA. A lot of craft breweries and distilleries around to tour along with the typical sights of that area. Unfortunately not making bourbon. Also a side trip to Pottsville to tour Yuengling. Kinda weird that in the Amish area, we are staying in a town named Intercourse.

    Third summer in a row heading to Northern Michigan. 70-75 during the day and 55-60 during the night in late June/early July. Right in the sweet spot for me. Can’t wait.

    Heading back to Anguilla in the Caribbean in August. Then hopefully a trip or two down to Norris lake. I burned up all my vacation in the first 3 months of the year.

    To each their own I guess. You definitely bring a different view to life than most.

    Love gulf shores. When the children were younger we hit the beach nearly every year...more out in Ft. Morgan. Way less crowded. Love the seafood, esp the original oyster house, docs, tacky jacks, and the steamer.

    Hotel rooms, travel expenses, dining out everyday, it adds up, and to me is always more of a headache than its worth. But, I never went on vacations as a kid either, so thats probably where my perspective comes from.

    I've never been there. So any advice on the area and things to do would be nice

    To me, nearly nothing tops hanging out at the beach all day long. Only worries are watching the kids, keeping the cooler stocked with ice cold brews, and not getting caught by the lady friend while checking out the "scenery".
