I need a vacation...

So, today I booked my vacation. I've been more than a bit frustrated lately so I really needed one.
I have small kids so plane trips and long car trips are OUT of the question. But thanks to a library book on great places in Ohio, I found a wonderful cabin with a hot tub, fireplace, full kitchen and fantastic view all for less than your average hotel room would cost.
I am REALLY looking forward to it.
So, where have you been to or going to lately that you just loved? (For my future reference. The kids won't be small forever, Thank Goodness.)

Good on ya!
Same thoughts myself, Algarve Portugal sun and stuff, leave Saturday 28 aug, booked it a couple of hours ago.
But jeez finding a bargain is getting real difficult these days,took me hours to find a good deal. Hey you travel affiliates ...update sites more often!

There's a little known hot spring right on the Idaho/Montana border, at about 9300 ft. Oh, the locals know about it, but I've never seen it mentioned in any hot spring guides... Good!
I've been there twice now, and carved my initials in the shack to prove it. Maybe I can get the boss to let me borrow his RV for a weekend, take myself and El Dento out into the wilds and scare a few bears.

In my experience, they tend to reproduce, thus ensuring tiny hands in the cookie jar long after you thought it would all end.

You pack an oxygen tank in your suitcase? ;)

Nope, we drive up. The hot spring is on the east edge of the Frank Church Wilderness Area, northwest from Salmon. I'll have to find my topo map and check that altitude again ;)
To me it's more fun to drive up a mountain and then enjoy the view from the top. Others enjoy the climb. Either way, its a vacation.
unless, maybe, you already live in the mountains

I live in the mountains, sort of. So 9,000ft for me is no problem.
I hope to get the hell out of the office and go to the beach over the next weekend. I got the reservations the day before yesterday :).

I can see it now, someone driving down into a valley for a vacation, marvelling, "Wow, there is absolutely no view from down here! The air is so oxygen-rich I'm getting delerious! Man, I love vacations..."

Sorry for some specifics, but one of my clients is targeting French tourists from Paris.
He runs some remote place in the wild renting log cabins around a lake. Parisians are quite 'speedy' already. In the first days of breathing real air, they are out of control!

Hannamyluv, I hope you have a GREAT vacation.
>> check that altitude again
Err, it's only 7305 ft and located in the Bitterroot Range.
