I dare you to find a better motivator to get out of town then bad weather at home. If you can't head for the hills, the next best thing is a convention dedicated to travel. Nothing better then roaming the aisles of the new Gaylord Hotel on the waterfront, at the Travelganza travel show while a hurricane blows through DC. YUM.
Linds was a trooper and headed over with me. Although most of the vacations were way out of our budget.... there was plenty to aspire to!
