Interesting Idea
« on: June 25, 2009, 09:05:06 AM »
I was talking to a guy at work the other day and he mentioned that he has been taking a lot of vacations lately. Being that I'm addicted to travel myself, I  asked for more details on what he has been up to.He and his wife spent an entire year not doing anything that wasn't totally necessary. Turned off the cable,the internet, ate all meals at home,packed their own work lunches,didn't go on any trips,drove motorcycles back and forth to work to save gas,etc,etc. They basically lived on the down low for a year.
 
Then the next year they took their motorcycles out west several times for epic adventure tours. Basically they used all of their vacation time, holidays,and some weekends to go on motorcycle trips and whatever the hell else they wanted to do until the saved up money ran out. I don't feel like I have the will power to do such a thing but it certainly got my wheels turning. Whistler, Moab,Snow Shoe,Mammoth etc in one year :-\
