    My fantasy trip is to go to Salem, MA for Halloween. I've always wanted to do it and I almost made it this year! If our school schedule hadn't changed by a week I would have been off that week. I want to be there for about 2 days before to watch everything and everyone get ready, and for about 2 days after to see it calm down.

    There are two trips I'd love to take.

    The first would be a week by myself in Cedar Key at the Island Hotel.

    The second would be a driving trip, desert Southwest. I'd like to take several weeks and do west Texas, New Mexico, Arizona (can't get enough!), maybe Nevada, Utah...I hitchhiked extensively in that area back in the day, but I had no coordinated plan, no money, and no sense, so it was pretty much a wasted (ha ha) trip. I'd really love to have the time to do it the 'grownup' way.

    On either trip I'd need my laptop, a telescope, and my Bible. Oh, and I guess my cell phone. But I'd leave that turned off alot. [​IMG]

    My Dream:
    This summer I wanted to go southward to Fairbanks or Anchorage to professionally train my two youngest male weimaraners and then test them for titles in NAVHDA hunting. Then I would have gone to The Netherlands with my Boris and hunted pheasant and tried to get him tested there for hunting ability while visiting w/his breeders and his dam:) Maybe next year...I only have a three year time frame to do this as she'd be 9 years old at the 3rd year and that's getting up there in age for her to see her son...I know, my dogs are spoiled...

    Writer, I am spending Halloween in Salem this year! I can hardly wait! I've been three times, always for one day in October, but never for Halloween. I said ever since my first trip there that the first year Halloween falls on a weekend I am going. It's a Friday this year, so my brother, sister, a coworker, and I are all going up that WED and coming home MON. I'll have to email you my pics!

    As for a dream vacation...there are so many places I want to see, but Hawaii and the South Pacific Islands would be the very top of my list. Then I want to go to Ireland and Scotland, and also to Yellowstone. Like I said, there are so many places I want to visit, but those would be my top choices [​IMG]

    Travel has always been my most favorite thing and my biggest goal. I have two favorite quotes....
    I think I must have eaten the page from an atlas when I was very small. Otherwise, I can't explain why I have always been agitated in my blood with a love of far places.
    and....
    Homesick for a place I've never been.

    That's a neat dream snowydiamonds. I guess I never knew that weimaraners were bird dogs!

    My dream is a cruise to Alaska. I would love to see Alaska!

    Alaska from my dog's view, to help make your trips to AK come true:
    Cold outside? Warm sunshine and warm stove inside;

    You can walk for miles in March and get a tan

    The tundra is soft, fresh and clean to roll in

    Salmon are sneaky and hard to retrieve

    (I love the look of LHV's, had a SHViszla when I was 17)
