I want to go to Minnesota, colorado or East coast.
All but Colorado are doable since i have friends in MN and on the east coast
Whether I actually get to is a completely different story. people are very flakey and i don't like imposing

Would be nice to go camping in MN or hiking through Appalachian mountains.

I'm at the beach this week, taking a few surfing lessons starting today, and it is a beautiful day.

I also have a couiple weeks planned in British Columbia for mountain biking and ????, plus I want to check out some places for skiing up there this winter.

September I'll ride the 7 day Cycle Oregon ride, I'm really stoked about that one.

Sounds like you have some nice plans, AJC. Hope you have a great time!

As for me, stuck here in NC. Dreaming of a long-needed vacation, but no plans 'til I get some things off my plate. Would love to go to OshKosh in July, but maybe next year....

Heading to Bellingham Washington in mid July to go sailing. My folks have been bugging the wife and I to go sailing with them for some time. We'll be sailing around the San Juan Islands. Should be beautiful.

TG you always have a friend in Colorado

Just yesterday planned an 4 day trip to Crested Butte, Colorado camping and mountain biking in July. WHOO HOO, I've been wanting to do this for awhile now

Alot of day trips planned with the girls.

Possible two week mountain bike/camping trip end of August but not set in stone.

I'm just excited to get out and explore some of what my great state has to offer

Amsterdam for a week (for a conference, but getting to see some friends and colleagues, and do some riding too), and then teaching most of the rest of the summer. A number of local centuries and metrics- the CB tour especially- so all's not lost!

I'm headed to work. I only use my vacation in the form of a day here and there. I usually hang around home when I do take vacation.

I have. I used to have an aunt that live 40+ minutes outside of OshKosh. It's been several years since I've been, but I have been to quite a few shows. Since my aunt moved to Texas I haven't been back to OshKosh. It's a great show.

When I have my PPL, BDG, I'll do that, and I'll bring my bike.
