We have 6 dogs. Boarding costs a fortune, hence why I opened a Pet Sitting Service and why we don't do long extended vacations. We take 1 day trips, i.e., to the Gulf Coast for fishing, to Conroe or Livingston for boating (yes, we just bought a used bass boat!).

Yes, possibly in the fall to the Blue Ridge Parkway, which stretches from I-64 in central Virginia down to US-441 just southwest of Asheville, NC in the Great Smoky mountains.

No way. A vacation like that is still considered a luxury for me. Maybe sometime in the distant future.

ə i don't take "vacations" as such. i do go on long trps, to chess events and other things, and those are _always_ over 500 miles if going out of state.
most of my trips are "county- and road hunts" meaning i try to get as many new counties and highways as i can on them. the chess tourneys are an added incentive to go to certain places.
last year i racked up 38400 miles in nineteen states, getting new counties in all but my own (which is already done), and 454 coverall. so far in 2007, i have 160 counties in twenty states, but most of that was done before mid-march. _dressed_ mileage does not count. ☺ ə
