    The only holidays I used to take advantage of were Christmas Day & New Years Day. Of course, this was back when I wasn't a dad. Those were the absolute best days to go skiing... The lifts were empty.

    These days.. I don't want to be on the roads with the holiday rookies.

    The other good day to ski is Super Bowl Sunday.

    Hank Scorpio: Hammocks? My goodness, what an idea. Why didn't I think of that? Hammocks!

    Oh no and miss all those stupid ads and watching guys throwing yellow flags 80% of the time? They do manage to fit a little football in between all that, though.

    The places that are generally accessible for a weekend trip in my area are usually pretty crowded on Labor Day weekend, so the last few years I have set up a 'camp' in my backyard. Cookout on the grill, roast marshmallows, make smores, etc. My son sometimes will setup in the backyard with me, so it's kind of fun.

    Maybe I'll do the 16-mile stretch of the NCT between Ohio into Michigan. All asphalt road in full sun. Sounds like a blast!

    Stellar plan! At least you'll have the trail all to yourself.

    Sunny, highs around 70, mid-upper 40s at night. This weekend is hard to resist!!! But in addition to the Labor Day zoo, I really need to stay home and finish my deck. All I have left is one more cleaning, then stain after it's dry. It's a good opportunity for that as well...but Mr. Pine E. Woods is calling me into his office.

    We have a long tradition of the family getting together in a multi-bedroom lodge. Let's just say the "relative" humidity is high and that I'll be sleeping out back in my hammock
