OT - Spring Break/Get-Away Plans and Favorite Memory

Submitted by xtramelanin on March 26th, 2017 at 9:17 PM


It's that time of the year when many are either on the road or preparing to depart for some type of spring break, pursuit of warmth, flight to sunshine, escape from snow, etc.   

So the questions are:  What are your spring break plans, assuming you are taking one, where are you going and whose going with you?

 What and where was your best all-time spring break memory?

As much as I'd like to, I've never left for a spring break...

I keep a stash of money each year for at least one Michigan game in the fall. I travel TOWARD the cold. I embrace that shit.

It's just been a place I've always been interested in. Probably because it's one of my Eastern European nationalities adds to the intrigue.

I've heard nothing but good things about going there from research.

Only window where I can do something like this. It's gonna be for a few weeks. The job I'm at now is not gonna be my career, I'm young and so is my friend who also is going.

Hell, you can find a Russian bride just from the sidebar adds on MGoBlog.

It's strange . . . all the Russian girls I have ever met look you-can't-touch-this hot, sound like total mean bitches, but are actually very good natured and sweet.  Something about that accent.

Good for you WD...are you going to Dallas?

I figure that sounds more like a WD save up and first flight experience.

You're always full of surprises!

But if you're going overseas...not Rome in a couple of weeks?! Travel around and follow the team like your parents probably wanted to do with the Beatles or the Stones back in their day!

I actually never planned anything for spring break - most everyone else left and it was time to actually catch up on hobbies like music and model ships (science fiction ones mainly - I still have my model of USS Reliant, for example) and things like that. Even at Michigan, I had a tendency to schedule my own vacation, hence the class which I attended maybe five times not including exams, did all the reading, and still managed an "A" in it. 

We're taking the kids to museums, some of them on campus as well as the DIA and a few others, and some miscellaneous events. They are out the week after this coming week and I do plan to be more scarce at work than usual for that reason.

Favorite memory: going to the Bahamas with my housemates and hanging out with some British sailors on leave. Nothing tawdry, just the good clean fun of drinking and gambling with fun-loving working class Brits. 


I'm currently on spring break with my family in Vero Beach. My son is here with his high school baseball team, and they're playing a tournament at Dodgertown. Yesterday he pitched a great game and got the win. Pitched from the same mound as Koufax, Sutton, and Drysdale. They're staying four guys to a room and because my son is a junior on the varsity team, he doesn't get a bed; he's sleeping in a lounge chair. For five nights. I can't even believe he managed to pitch one inning, much less six. But great team bonding experience he'll remember for the rest of his life.

For Cancun. A little work...a little vacation with the kids...

Not great timing with some personal stuff going on..I feel like a heel for not being more excited, but I have a feeling I'll love it when I'm just chillin' with a book and sand between my toes.

I never really did great spring break trips when in school, but my kids' spring breaks are pretty awesome. Last year was the best--Maui with my family.
