    Where people aren't. Usually camping, but traveling in "developing" countries has been good to us as well.
    If I am going to vacation around people it's for music or Motorsport. Both of those you can't hear other people's screaming children.

    We climbed up this one. DD51AFCF-6885-4437-A671-7600FAFEE4AF.jpeg

    I wouldnt' say its a "bad" thing, but I know I have a difficult enough time pondering how people think when their heads are safely attached to their shoulders, yet alone not.

    I think until someone can come back from "the undiscovered country from whose bourn no traveler returns", we won't know answer that question.

    When you go to your final reward, why not look up Anne Boleyn and ask her? I bet she would be your type....

    Anne Boleyn .....well i know that she was
    one of Henrys wife and they chopped her hED off

    But it seems as there was a poem
    i learnert in English lit class about her

    can't find it

    all i can come up wit is Lizzy Borden
    that gave her husband 40 whacks

    getting old is a waste of time ..purty much!

    Why would you go there at your age?
    That's a place you take your kids. It's a different perspective when you do it for them.

    Mel and I are at an all inclusive in Jamaica. It’s a first for both of us. It’s couples only so no kids and super laid back. Service has been just ok IMO.

    It’s weird not having kids around but we’re pushing through!

    Life is vibes.

    After 10 years, Mel is still the best looking girl at the party!

    Our new friend, Andy. Absolutely hilarious guy from upstate NY. Poor guy’s wife left him just before the trip but you can’t keep Andy down!

    Mel’s mom said Max (8) watched daddy do a backflip a few times from home. He still thinks The Kid is pretty cool.

    The best times ALWAYS involve great people. The second guy from the right is Jake. He’s a skier from Maine and recognized my FlyLow shirt. Very cool young couple who know how to party.

    for me it is getting up in the Colorado mountains...far away from people...work...and my phone...grabbing my fly rod...putting on a pair of waders and heading out into the water and just fish..........the sound of nothing but the water moving...the relaxing peace and quiet... and then the adrenalin when the pole bends....

    You don't know untill you return. If you return more tired and worn out then when left it wasn't a vacation. If you return feeling refreshed and feel like you can tackle the world again you were on vacation.

    I might return physically tired but mentally I am ready to kill it again.
