Hello OT dwellers, Long story short, my life recently went down the drain and I want to take a little time off by myself to re-energize, think a little and see something else. I want to take a 4-5 days holiday, probably sometime in may, and go somewhere, me alone. What I am looking for is suggestions as to where to go and what to do, since it seems there are many TBers from the north-east. I want to keep it to 6-8 hours drive from Montreal, so Canada and N-E US destinations are welcome. If there is an interesting music festival somewhere and around that time frame, I may well be interested. I also am a somewhat fit guy who likes outdoor stuff, am used to hiking in the Appalachians, but sure don`t want to spend all that time climbing mountains or biking alone either (just a bonus). I need to see some city life also, meet random people, just ... do something. So now is the time to boast your own little corner and convince me to go there I am listening (and will be researching) your suggestions, and just to answer some future questions already, I am 25, have my own car (station wagon so I can fit my bike IN it), have everything needed to travel to the US (passport, etc) and I can certainly spend a couple hundred $ for this little trip (not an enormous budget but not sleeping-in-a-back-alley either). Any destination suggestion will be welcome. Thanks.
