Harbaugh summer vacation sweepstakes

Submitted by Sinsoftheschafer on June 29th, 2016 at 2:30 PM

So it's that time of year:

1) Recruiting dead period -- no more camps

2) Before the start of Fall practice

This means its family time for Coach!  Last year he took the wife to Paris for a week of sightseeing and (presumably) romance.  We should have a contest to guess where he shows up this year.  Extrapolating from limited data:

1) He's not a sit on the beach type -- the man needs to keep busy on vacation.  Likely an urban location.

2) Harbaugh is an innovator.  He won't do the same thing twice.  Europe is out as a repeat destination

3) The man is a student of history.  He'll want to explore some place of signifigance.

4) The wife is preggers. Unlikely to go somewhere where the primary past time is drinking/partying.

My guess is that our beloved coach heads off to Israel to drink in the the Holy Sites.  Where does the MgoCommunity think he ends up?

I think he surveys a Tunisian ruin (presumably Carthage) prior to a tank battle vs. Rommel, and talks about his past lives fighting historical battles.

I'm with you. Visitiing Paris doesn't get you a tick in the "Europe" box.

That would be like visiting Columbus and then checking the "College Tailgates" box.

Tailgating in Madison isn't the same as Ann Arbor. And SEC tailgates aren't the same as the Big 10. At a miniimum you'd have to tailgate at 1 school from each conference to tick the box.

(OK, maybe not a great analogy but I really really miss football!)

My Power 5 for a vacation in Europe:

  1. London
  2. Brugges
  3. Rome
  4. St Petersburg
  5. Krakow

I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure one of his destinations will be Peru again. I think he does an annual mission with his church to the same place down there every year. Under the Peruball Lights II.

Then he'll go somewhere different for a more private/tourist type vacation.

He heard Brazil was having some trouble getting this whole Olympics thing together, so he will fly down to Rio and coach them up.

The man who saved the Summer Olympics.

He will buy a cottage in NW Michigan. TC, Charlevoix, Leland? If you read John U Bacon's book you know he has friends in that area. With that many kids he needs an up north compound.

Several things

  1. Jim goes to Peru. Sans Sarah.
  2. A week up north, maybe Charlevoix, maybe UP, on the water somewhere, time to fish, boat, be a family. I think this is the kind of thing he does with mom, dad, brother, sister, etc. Maybe off on location, but not concept.
  3. Somewhere out west. California, Wyoming, Montana. Just the immediate family.
