Need a quick break?

I love getting the hell out of dodge on the weekend. Back in the days when the boy and I were just students with no responsabilities, and he didn’t have a standing requirement to work every weekend until the end of time, we used to take little trips to go camping, visit family in Michigan, and check out the antiques in Door County. Man, that was great. So this post of MetaFilter about mini-vacays around the Midwest has me hurting for the good old days. So take of next Friday and head somewhere. Anywhere.

    As a native of Louisville, KY, I can highly recomend a weekend trip. It’s only about a 5n5 hour drive, it’s always warmer there than here, lots of outdoors opportunities as well as fun nightlife, food, etc.

    If you’re really feeling spontaneous, the Kentucky Derby is next Saturday (always the first Saturday in May). While getting tickets might be a challenge (there’s always the infield) the entire city will be one big party. For additonal reference, see Hunter S. Thompson’s (another Louisville native, btw) aptly titled “The Kentucky Derby is Decadent and Depraved.”

    If you plan on going to the ‘ville and are in need of some travel advice, holla at me.

    Sounds like a great idea, just wish I had more time. I’ll need a 3 day weekend for places that are over 3 hours away.
