in reply to Vacation plans this summer

My vacations usually stack up as a couple of long weekends with a few extra days off around the Christmas holidays. I try to structure them around holidays and the various weddings that always seem to sprout up during the summer months.

Most of my vacations are spent traveling to Wisconsin from Michigan so that my girlfriend can spend time with her family as well.

A couple dozen hours in the car is a small price to pay for harmony, and hey, I can always bring the laptop and code / play half-life when it's her turn to drive. She became more open to traveling with the laptop when she found that we could play a DVD and hook the sound through her car stereo to help her pass the time. *grin*
