YIKES! Praying that your job is stable and that you get to take that trip to Orlando.

Inexpensive day trips can be just as fun as a vacation. Goodness knows my DH and I have had to do that more than a time or two...do you have any good, inexpensive attractions near you? We love to hit local state parks and historical sites.

Christmasnut Congrats on the new house!! That must be so exciting and a LOT of work. I hope you get finished sooner than you expect and that you'll be all nicely settled into your new home before you know it!

Cipalla Thank you! I just may take you up on that when the time gets closer. I'm such a *planner* but even though I do all the research there's just no substitute for the advice someone who has been there and knows the area well.

My DH raves on Universal at Orlando. I've never been but he says it's amazing. I hope you have a great time!

I don't know why I didn't think to reply to everyone in a single post like this instead of making a million individual replies. I'm such a dork! *slapping self on forehead*

Anyway, I hope everyone has safe and happy travels wherever they may be going this year. Oh, and I'd love to see pics when you all get back!!!

Our vacation fund has just taken a nose dive. I've just NOT filled my tank for $117.22.

I like hearing what other people want to do though

I'll start:

This year I hope DH and I will get to go for a week's vacation to Gettysburg, PA. It's the vacation we were supposed to take last year but had to cancel when DH buggered up his leg at work. However, this year I've got my fingers crossed for everyone to be healthy and ready to go when the time comes!

We'll probably head out the first or second week in Sept. so that we can celebrate our anniversary at the same time. While we're there we'll take a tour into Washington D.C. as well as hitting Hershey (c'mon, it's the chocolate city...we HAVE to go), and hopefully we'll also have time to fit in a visit to Lancaster County and the battlefield at Antietam.

I'm a bit late getting in on this, but Sunshine I just have to say that my hubby and I were in Gettysburg this summer, for the battle reenactment. We belong to a group that went out - I was on a bus with 51 guys and 4 other women, and yes, I slept in a tent on the battlefield. It was an amazing site, about 15,000 reenactors, 400 cavalry, 100 cannon. I'll never forget it. Have you ever been to one of the reenactments there?

I used my vacation time to fix up my house which I bought a year and a half ago. I did spend a weekend in Amsterdam and will go to London in November for a weekend. No major trips this year !
