    Re: Where are you going on your summer vacation?

    We are going to Alaska in July. It was painful to buy the tickets, but it could have been worse because the prices have gone up significantly since we booked. My daughter is telling me nearly every day now that she wants to go on vacation. Unfortunately I think she wants to go to the beach and I'm certain "the beach" in Anchorage is not exactly what she has in mind!

    We take day trips around our area.

    queenb have fun in Memphis... In case you go this way- There was road construction in May (whats new ) on 40 west before and after the Arkansas bridge over the mighty Mississippi River and they have reworked the Little Rock,AR / Jackson, MS. exit on 40 west (the Germantown side) of 40. the exit lanes are all different.

    We're going on an Alaskan cruise in early September. As their "Happy Birthday and Merry Christmas for the rest of your life" gifts, we're taking our son and daughter and their spouses as well. I should be old enough to know better, but we're going ziplining in Ketchikan!

    We'd also like to do the Mexican Riviera cruise in December, but that will depend on how the economy (global and personal) goes for the rest of the year.

    I forgot, I get to spend the night in Columbia, SC when my daughter goes to take the state boards. Columbia is the screen door to hell and its one of the hottest, most miserable places on earth. I would not be going if I didn't have too. I plan to go to the state museum while she's in the testing.

    Why is Columbia hotter than the rest of SC? No trees?

    We've already been, so maybe it's not a summer vacation, but to celebrate my sister's graduation, our family spent the last two weeks of May in China! I'm also going to Argentina for a week and a half in September to meet up with a friend. Otherwise, just weekends up in Maine... thankfully gas is nowhere near last summer's prices!

    Are you stopping in Anchorage? There are some GREAT restaurants in Anchorage. The food is one of the things I miss the most about living there!!

    Columbia is in the middle of the state, so it gets no sea breezes like the coast and it is lower in elevation than where I live, so it's sitting in an area with no breezes, no mountains and the humidity is much higher.

    Sadly, we'll just be going from the ship (in Whittier) to the airport in Anchorage. We won't have an opportunity to experience the city at all.

    Our next-door neighbors - who spend winters only in Arizona - live in Anchorage in the summer, and we won't even have a chance to see them!
