Post Summer Time! What are you doing this summer?
So thought I would post a thread where you can share what you and your family are doing this summer! Any trips planned? Anything fun going on?

We are planning a trip in early September. Otherwise, not much exciting going on at our house! Clearing out stuff that accumulates over the years, downsizing furniture, scrapbooking, scanning old negatives and photos, working on ancestry.com family tree, jumping in the pool now and then, and of course playing WoW as well as Nostalrius (now and then).

Post Re: Summer Time! What are you doing this summer?
I've been:
- Working. Our salespeople have closed deals and we don't have the resources to keep up.
- Working on my motorcycle - almost there, only have brakes left to do.
- Training for my first half-marathon on June 20. The 'Hotter than Hades' Mississippi delta run.
- Still working on the house and backyard fence to keep our escape artist dog from wandering off.
- Playing around on Nostalrius a bit. Also started searching for a private vanilla/TBC PVE server.
- Waiting to see if my daughter makes it to term with her baby. That would be 3rd week in July.

Planning: (thmnwtt = "To hijack my next work trip to")
- thmnwtt Chattanooga with a trip to Cades Cove to hike Gregory Bald.
- thmnwtt Boston with a trip to White Mountains NP to hike Franconia Ridge.
- thmnwtt Colorado with a trip to Rocky Mountains NP. Not sure which trail yet.
- A June 27 weekend trip to NOLA for a semi-annual meetup with old college friends.
- A family vacation to the Ozarks in September.
- Some sort of motorcycle/camping trip early fall.

Whew. I think I'll be happy when Fall does get here.

I've been working too! Closing deals to keep our support folks busy (I work in sales).

Big plans coming up this summer/fall, which may mean reduced WoW time.

I'm doing one more work trip to Oklahoma City next week. Right after, we're going to Europe next week:
- Oslo, Stockholm, and a cottage on a lake in Sweden
- a week in Romania (finally showing my husband where I was born)
- a week in Sardinia to decompress

And then, in August, we're moving to New Mexico! This has been a dream for many years, and we finally got permission from both our jobs to work remotely. We're renting a house in Santa Fe for a year to see how it goes.

That is super awesome Mav! Want to go to Europe pretty bad in the next couple of years, hopefully we can swing it. Also grats on the remote work thing. Still working on my boss to let us do that. Northern New Mexico is full of great outdoors stuff.

Awesome both of you! Sunds like lots of fun plans and a busy summer for you. We lived in Germany for 3 years and loved it! We really hated to leave to come home. We traveled to the Netherlands (family there) and made quick trips to Spain, Italy and France.

Wow Mav you were born over there? SOunds like an interesting story - tell us how you came here!

Motorcycles? My brother and his sons along with my brother in law and a couple friends take a ride every year cross country. They camp out along the way or stay at a KOA but have a great time on their trips!

Hand surgery - that accident a few years ago that crushed my left hand (among other things) when I had to stop raiding and met some of you - the lawsuit is settled. Last surgery trying to make my left hand work right after being completely crushed a couple years ago. Enjoying my work on a good contract job. Visiting daughter #1 at her pre-college program at RISD. (Went to Block Island yesterday - so much fun.) Going to vacation in Ontario in a few weeks.

Enjoying the summer - we live near one of those bike trails that used to be railroad tracks - beautiful walks. Also live on a nature preserve. Love to be outdoors. After having 9 feet of snow in the yard - I'm enjoying the hell outta my summer.

Good to hear from you Faes, hope it all works out with your hand. You moved or just visiting someplace better?

Wow is pretty dead right now, so you aren't missing much!

It is always great ot be somewhere you can enjoy the outdoors! Happy walking:)

I've been catching up on artwork for that book that seems to be consuming my life.

Still live in the same place near Boston, Rosie. I've been in Pittsburg, PA for the last couple days. Flying back today. Heading out on vacation Friday so won't be online for the week. Have a good one!
