Of course these Days one could say that its really a season that lasts All year. In a talking about vacation season of course. Traditionally vacation season starts with the memorial Day weekend and continues through labor Day. I suppose that most of us still like to vacation during that traditional season but with the increased use of air travel and recreational vehicles of All types vacation time is any time. I know that in a looking Forward to vacation in less than a couple of weeks although my wife and i Haven to yet figured out what wed like to do or where if anywhere wed like to go this year. In order to keep costs Down i know that Well make it a driving vacation again this year. Truth to Tell in be never travelled any other Way except when i went with a group of Guys on a chartered bus to indy one year. In fact i like to travel by car. That Way i can pick the time i want to leave and fairly accurately calculate the amount of time it will take me to get there give or take a few minutes or hours for getting lost along the Way. I like to think of the trip As half the fun i relish the Challenge of driving strange roads with even stranger Drivers. A Well driven vacation trip is a source of accomplishment of Pride almost the routine i like to follow goes something like this a out of bed dressed packed and in the car by 8 . At least. A on the Road by 8 30 allowing time for getting a full tank of gasoline a on the main previously chosen route of travel by 9 a three hours of steady driving at 60 to 65 mph no one drives at 55 and then. A lunch after lunch Back in the car for five or so hours until dinner or final arrival at destination whichever comes first. I done to like to Stop i Don t like to sightseer and i done to like to be held up this method of travel can be a problem for spouses and children who frequently like to waste time doing silly things like stopping to use the bathrooms at Roadside Gas stations and restaurants stopping to ask for directions is also out of the question i figure that either the person i ask wont know where i want to go or i won t understand his directions anyway once i gave in on the trip to South Carolina and i was sorry a How do you get to Sumter a i asked the Gas station attendant As i rolled to a Stop after searching for the right directional sign for about a half an hour a which Sumter Are you going to a a do you mean there re two Summers a a yeah if Yak ii want to go to the one yall have to turn your machine around and head to other Way but if a wait wait a minute i want to go to the Sumter that a close to the air Kerr a a a a what air Force base a a forget it a i said As i started rolling out of the station Only two hours and one phone Call to the peo pie we were supposed to be visiting later we arrived we were Only about five Miles away from them ail the time the whole trip Only took 13 hours of nearly continuous driving and it was kind of fun tin at least i thought so anyway Kathy and i have had similar experiences on previous vacations my wife s a Good sport she says that just because in a too stubborn to know when to quit that a no reason to ask for an annulment. Yep its time to get out the old Rand Mcnally Road Atlas and Chart a new course
