    So, what are you travel plans for Summer, 2012 (between Memorial Day and Labor Day)?

    Gas is too expensive to drive very far and I won't tolerate the games TSA plays.

    BBQ University in June. If my wife has any conferences in interesting places I may tag along.

    We normally take our real vacation in February or March.

    If it weren't for the gas prices, I'd be going to see my daughter and family in Putnam county, NY, then off to former home in Broome County. Unsure now

    Wellfleet? LOL! My wife's family rents a cottage there!

    My plans, however, have all been cancelled at worst, put off at best. Squatters not paying rent at my wife's old house have cost us over $15,000 so no family reunion (Nashville) and no anniversary trip (August) for us. *Maybe* I can still swing a December trip with my airline points for air fare and credit card points for a rental car.

    With Mrs. Fluffybear only getting "weekends" off this summer, I doubt we will do much of anything but hang around the house. Mrs. Fluffybear had suggested the family go out to Robin Beach at Callaway Gardens had her schedule not been modified but going out there on a weekend would be like going to Disneyland if they had a free admission day!

    We just took a 4 day weekend mountain getaway and attended a wedding for one of my nephews.
    No plans for the summer.

    Working in the motorcycle industry means no time off April - July and I wait until September as all the families are back home and early Sept is usually beautiful riding weather

    I just finished a family history tour with my brother and two nephews. It took us to Elizabeth PA, Oliver and Laurely Beach MD and Davis WV. We found old houses my parents lived in, places my dad worked, and the cemetary where my grandparents and great grandparents are buried. We actually traced my mothers family back to the revolutionary war and found the graves of many from the 1700's in Fells Church PA. This was a once in a lifetime event and was great. My brother, who is 76, was so excited to see the first house he remembered as a kid still standing. My mom and dad moved from that house in the early 1940's. Many of the small towns in PA, MD and WV look like time has stood still and many are in decay. Davis and Thomas WV have no museum with any history of the towns. The library has many books and local restaurants have many photos but there is no organized collection. I was pointed to the local Dish network distributor who had the most historical photos in the town of Davis!

    Just this morning was a report that Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Henry Kissinger was pulled out of line by the TSA for a full body search and scan!

    We usually head up to California's Sierra Foothills for a week or so. Usually to Angel's Camp, made famous by Mark Twain's 'The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County'

    There are MANY wineries and lots of interesting things to do.

    IMHO, no issue here as you should not get a pass just because you may be famous.

    My Father's family was from Wellfleet and used to own what is now the Eventides motel on route 6. Back then they rented to mostly fishermen and the cottages they owned were tiny and had only bare necessities. I still return with remaining family members every 2 or 3 years because of the beauty of that area.

    It's not the 'famous' that's ironic. It's that he's a Nobel Peace Prize winner, yet he's treated and singled out (randomly) to check for terrorist stuff.
