Thanks to everyone for voting and commenting about the options for vacations thatJohn and I were considering this year. After careful consideration and appreciation for the overwhelming vote for the cruise to Greece….. here’s what we are going to do.
Yes gang, it will be a “Brokeback Vacation to the Rocky Mountains” … the number two voted response in the poll (with a modification).
On July 6 we are leaving Charlotte to fly to Calgary, Alberta Canada for the annual rodeo festival known as “The Calgary Stampede.” Then on Sunday July 9, we are driving four hours through the Canadian Rockies to an awesome sounding dude ranch for the next seven days. I would tell you the name of the dude ranch, but I fear some weirdo would track us down. So I’m afraid that I’ll have to plug the ranch after we get home along with photos.
We have wanted to experience both a dude ranch vacation and the Calgary Stampede for a number of years, so we just decided to combine it into one trip this year.
And why not Greece? Well, primarily because John’s job involves national security matters that would necessitate a lot of paperwork being filed with his company in order to travel out of the USA. And we costed out the Greece trip and felt as though it is something we will keep at the top of our list, but allow some time to save up for that one. But thanks for the comments and the vote!
So NDT was right…. dude ranch, DUDE RANCH… it is.
