    Vacation Destinations 2016

    Anyone planning vacations this year? Where are you going?

    Hubby told me to plan a vacation where ever I want to go without flying... So we are going to Myrtle Beach South Carolina. It's our first vacation and I'm very excited to go! I'm taking my TF100 too.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!

    Nothing specific in 2016 but we are going to the big mousetrap in Florida in about a year. Our daughter will be almost 7 then so a good time to take her. We went to Myrtle for a few days in 2012, was very fun. If you find a pair of glasses in the ocean though I would like them back. Good thing there was a Lenscrafters there.

    Casey,

    This will be our 50th wedding anniversary and my wife and I are going to tour castles along the Rhine in Germany, with stops in London and Paris. Plan to stop by the beaches of Normandy and take the train under the English Channel just to say " been there, done that". Looking forward, 50 years seemed to be a long time, looking back it took about a week.. Sigh!!

    Thanks for asking..

    No plans here other than maybe some long weekend trips. We did a 7 day cruise just before Christmas out of Houston on Princess lines to Roatan, Belize and Cozumel which was nice, it was our second time doing that itinerary, first time was also on Princess in January 2013 .

    Jim R, Happy Anniversary! That sounds like a lovely celebration.

    Have several trips planned for 2016. Some are girl trips, some are family trips, and I even have one just for myself alone. In no particular order, 3 days in Memphis, TN; 4 days in Washington, DC; 7 days in Tampa, FL; 10 days in Navarre, FL; 7-day western Caribbean cruise (NCL); and my own little getaway.

    Oh man, I was there last May and it was incredible. We stayed at Tops'l, which was pretty great. I have to say the mid-bay bridge had me white knuckling the wheel, we all found out that apparently I get a little tense driving on a 2-lane road over open water. It was my wife and I and another couple, we drove down and then the girls flew back while the guys drove home. That went great until my buddy got carsick in Cincinnati construction and I couldn't pull over. Oh well, the car was due for a wash anyway. At least he got his head out the window.

    Lou, is that this island: A beautiful island off Korea - Review of Ulleungdo, Ulleung-gun, South Korea - TripAdvisor? I've been stationed there twice (RoSK), but never made the trip to that location. Looks very nice. The rest of you are making my 7-day Caribbean cruise look like an overnight fishing trip. My goodness. Don't you people have pools to relax in?

    I love me some saltwater fishing, expecially in tropical places.
    So, me and a couple of my friends are planning a trip to Belize for a few days before long and are gonna try out the best sailfish fishing on the planet. I hope the fish will be biting.

    My bags are packed and Im ready to go.
