Headed to Dallas in a little over a week to see the Rangers' new park against the O's.

 

Will be fully vaccinated and pretty fired up about it.

Wanted to do Siesta Key/Sarasota in March -- I have it booked (refundable) and don't see myself going.

 

Wanted to do Dallas in April for the O's game at the Rangers' new ballpark.  I give this a 50/50 shot.

 

Want to do Vegas and Chicago this fall for Ravens road games.  I think both of these will happen. 

 

Still planning to do both Ravens' road games.

 

Really want to get back to Wrigley too.  They play the Cards at home on a weekend series in July -- seems like a solid time to go.

If you have a chance, try to eat at Pecan Lodge in Deep Ellum - great BBQ.

We are going to try to do everything we canceled last year.

 

Mrytle Beach - Memorial Day

Deep Creek Lake for the 4th

Cruise in October

Siesta Key in December.

 

The cruise is still a huge question mark.

We did OBX last year and will do it again this year.

 

Even if COVID flares back up, being on the beach, with your own beach and pool, its just a matter of moving your bubble for 1 week.

This is about a mile from our hotel so we will definitely check it out

Bag the cruise and spend a week in Bahamas instead. Better value and I know the cool places to go.

I really want to do Deep Creek one day. Seems like my speed. 

 

One day...

We’re going to Aruba in late May. They seem to have a good system for travel during Covid. Need tests before arriving and before leaving and need to purchase travel insurance for the week. Other than that I expect things to be relatively normal outside of wearing a mask.
I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

I was bullish on cruises before COVID and I’m even more bullish now. It’s just not my scene. Get me on the beach for the whole week. Not just 4-5 hours a day.

So bearish then?

Also with you on cruises not being my preferred way to travel. I'd rather have more time at the destination(s) rather than a floating inner harbor type place.

Leaving the Outer Banks tomorrow morning. Vacationing while vaccinated is quite the feeling.

No I just never have taken the opportunity. There's never a combo of "I wanna go to Deep Creek and I realize I haven't gone" and "I have the time to go on vacation." 

 

I'm sure it'll happen this year.

I’m in Aruba now. Wonderful island. A little too windy for my liking but amazing beaches and great restaurants. Took the Covid test to return home today. Took ten minutes on the way to the beach. Of course we tested negative. They have done a great job here making restrictions feel less intrusive so it doesn’t take over your trip. It’s basically wear a mask anytime you approach a restaurant until you’re seated. Or enter a grocery store or any indoor place. Dining is mostly outside so there’s no fear about getting it. I recommend it for anyone who has been hesitant to travel internationally but is itching for a trip. It was a life saver for us.

Took a quick little getaway with my son last week for an end of school year trip to Cleveland.  Caught the Wednesday night and Thursday afternoon O's games.  Our first time outside of Memorial/Camden Yards.  Had a great time.  Explored some of the touristy areas of downtown Cleveland on Thursday morning.  Saw like 10 people the whole time.  Apparently no one actually works in Cleveland anymore.  

 

Anyway, it was a great if short little trip with my boy.

Were you able to hit up the Rock & Roll HOF there?

We saw it but didn't have a chance to go in.  It didn't open until 10:00 and the game was at 1, we just didn't think it would worthwhile for a few hours.  We were there right around 10:00 and literally no one was there.
