This is great!
The wife took off with her kids and grandkids for a day in the mountains. I was asked if I wanted to go and there is no way in hell I'm driving on a holiday up to where they were going. There will be so many people that any actual "wilderness" experience will be totally lost. On top of that I didn't feel like wasting 2 hours in the car going there and then coming back.
So... cleaning the house, waxing the car, going for a run in the park, kicking back in the sunroom with a cigar and then fire up the BBQ and having a few hot dogs.
Don't get me wrong, I love my wife but I'm old enough where I don't want to spend a highly coveted day off with a bunch of screaming kids and spending 4 hours on the road. I come from a small familiy and when holidays come around everyone just does their own thing. We all love each other dearly but when I get a day off, that's what it is... A DAY OFF.
