Karyn in Illinois.

My youngest son's birthday is the 15th.

Will be mailing his birthday wishes to Hawaii.

He loves it and is going to be there awhile.

I tried to see where I'd get in 6 hours, but it's nowhere near as interesting as your travels, Suzan, lol! The best I could do was Minneapolis or Mackinac Island. Within the 6 hour time, though, I could go to Chicago (about 2 - 3 hours).  I tried to get to Canada, so I could say I could get to another country, but even that is 7 hours away, lol.

I go to Chicago now and then, usually to see one or more of the museums. I haven't been there in years and years, though. We talk about it, but never actually go, lol.  And I'd never go there alone! I'm too old to drive in a city that big. If I didn't kill myself, someone else would probably do it out of frustration with my driving, lol!  I don't even like to drive in Milwaukee (I do, but I don't like it - and I don't go downtown if I can possibly help it).

I did the same thing Ann and being that we live in the middle of the country, we'd need more than 6 hours to get anywhere really interesting too. That's why we're only going to Branson for vacation this year. Six hours we can do in a day, but much longer than that would require an over night stay to get there and again to get back home again. We decided that would add too much more cost to the trip and if we flew and rented a car, a lot more cost to the trip. So, we settled for Branson. We do like Branson, though, and we have a great time no matter where we go. Sure wish we were heading to a warm ocean beach somewhere though.
