I’m writing this blog, albeit with a bit of grumbling as I heard about the crowds at the airports this past weekend heading south to take advantage of March break in warmer destinations.
That conjures up memories of past golf trips or wild parties of the past that would leave me hurting for weeks if I dared attempt to keep up with collegians now, so maybe it’s best that I resist temptation by remaining behind the computer with no plans of a March getaway.
I may be taking a chance in doing this because there may not be enough GNN readers around to answer this week’s GNN Poll about whether they’re planning a getaway of their own this month, but I’m sure there are, so I’m willing to take that gamble. Besides, not all March getaways will take place this week.
There are two ways of looking at a March getaway to the south.
With the Canadian golf season fast approaching, you may decide there’s way too much work to do in preparation for that day, even if it may be later than usual due to the bitter winter that so many of us have faced.
Those frigid temperatures, however, may just emphasize the need for sunshine and warmth and once the season gets going in Canada, there won’t be any time to get away, so why not enjoy a little golf and precious time with the family? After all, a March getaway doesn’t have to be the wild times from your college years.
Even if you are busy at work, there may be time to take a couple of days off to spend with the family and, even if you’re staying at home on a Stay-cation, you might take a couple of days off for some side trips with the kids.
Which category do you fall into? That’s the topic of this week’s GNN Poll. You can cast your vote below or on the GNN home page and, as always, we welcome your opinion in the Comments section below.
