the number one thing people love to do on vacation --- travel

Go ahead. Breath that fresh mountain air; Cook over an open campfire; Plan exhilarating day hike; Finally get that SUV dusty; Take a picnic lunch to the nearest meadow & fall all asleep under a big tree... with the sunshine dancing across your cheeks. Reconnect with nature and learn to enjoy the silence.

Excuses, excuses! Why do so many people constantly make lame excuses of why they can't do what they wanna do - travel?

I'd love to go, but...
This project is almost finished...
I really can't afford it...
Actually I got something going on in town this weekend...
And, my fave - I don't have anybody to go with.

Well, guess what? You'll always have something else to do "in town". Somewhere to go, someone to see & something to spend you money on. But if you don't 'schedule in time' for the outdoors, it ain't never gonna happen. You have to really want it. Need it & even make plans for it. Plus looking forward to a 'weekend away' is half the fun of doing it.
