Nice! I was in the mode of Tender Vittles, Jeff Petro, The Escapist, CDHManning: Mountains, off grid, lake nearby. Pulled the beds out into the field and slept under the stars after boning up on my rusty astonomy. Other than that, I wouldn't mind a weekend vacation at a class-a railroad museum!

Fly fishing on a clear mountain stream with no cell phones, computers, traffic or whining managers. LOL

A vaction to me is to remove myself from the connected world. It doesn't matter where, just as long as there are no phones or internet. Which, oddly enough, is the exact opposite of my teenage daughter. She doesn't care where she goes as long as she can remain connected.

Like WireMan said, i will also go with "Two weeks on a quiet lake with a bag of books. No phone, no internet. Someone else takes care of meals, trash, laundry, lawn mowing, shopping..." :D

My ideal vacation would be one that combines electrical, mechanical, and civil engineering, copious amounts of sunshine, and the Matterhorn, but where one would hardly think about technology as the vacation would be so enjoyable. What is: dnalyensiD

I'm up for any facility that has NASA, Space, Science and/or Technology in its Title. The kids and wife are usually OK with this, but prefer a Facility with Art, Museum, Dinosaurs or Zoo in the facility's Title. We make our trips a mix of both and all parties have a great time!

Hard to get the rest of family excited about a geek vacation, so I usually try to slip the occasional geek item in "on the side" instead. We were in San Jose for a wedding this summer, and I slipped away for a few hours to the Computer History Museum, even managed to get my oldest daughter to tag along. Highly recommended, was the highlight of my trip. If you're driving cross-country and find yourself on I-70 in Kansas, take a detour to Hutchinson and the Kansas Cosmosphere, between I-70 and Wichita. You won't expect such a great space museum to be in this small farm town! It was still under construction when I last visited, I've been meaning to get back there. -Mike
