    (Please nothing explicit)

    I am going diving in Cozumel next week.

    Then San Francisco and Seattle later this summer.

    I still have to go to off-season training at school 3 days a week and I have to work.
     
  4. I might do a road trip with a couple of my buddies out to California(Wrong Robot look out).
     
  5. i might be going to las vegas with my family, but i'm not sure.
     
  6. sweet...guys,look like you got some fun plans ahead of yuo! hope you guys have a good time!


    I would like to take a road trip w/ a friend or two...I think it'd be neat. A small one,of course.

    in august. i'm thinking either mexico or spain for our honeymoon? any suggestions?

    my fiance is letting me pick our destination (its about the only thing having to with the wedding i get to pick). ;)
     
  9. Congrats MattyN!



    w00t!
     
  10. Mexico's way cheaper. Go to Spain when the European Central Bank gets its head out of its rectum and cuts interest rates.

    No work for me this summer :meh:

    It looks I'm going to get my originals pop/rock-band going, and perhaps go to some summer music festivals and/or hitch-hike around the country a bit.

    yeah... thats pretty much what i'm thinkin. plus mexico shouldn't be very crowded in august. its gonna be HOT though.
     
  15. I'm told that the Pacific coast is never all that hot. Acapulco or PV might be lovely.

    interesting... i was eyeing a place called "Akumal" on the carribean side:

    but i never considered that the pacific side would be cooler (although it makes total sense).

    i'm looking for someplace a little more "out of the way" than Acapulco or PV... if you got more ideas i'm all ears.
     
  17. Oh, sweet baby Jesus, I can't imagine being on the Caribbean coast in the summer. There's a reason they call it the "Mosquito Coast."

    Wifey and I are in the process of buying another house and soon we'll be moving. After that, we'll be painting etc.......and I'll be building a bigger garage to house the hotrods.

    Maybe if I'm lucky I'll get the Camaro out and go to the track a few times this year.
