If things keep going good, big if, I may be able to actually take some kind of vacation next year. The problem is I am trying to decide where I would want to go and what to do. The problem with deciding is I do not really like what "normal" people like on a vacation. I like being near the beach, but I would not spend an hour a day in the water and on it. I was on a singles cruise once and that was neat in that you met and hung with people for some time but also plenty of alone and relax time. But then again, lots of the time was sitting by a pool, which I find boring.

Put another way, if you offered me a trip to Disney World not only would I mainly prefer EPCOT, but I would rather see the behind-the-scenes and tunnels than half the attractions. No way I would go there alone, but just an example.

I probably have a free JBLU ticket or would drive in the east.

A dream would be spending half the day learning to day trade and the evening playing poker at a nice resort.

Any ideas?

Do a cruise with a casino. Lots to eat
and drink, lots of people to meet. I
wouldn't spend one second at a
pool.
If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.

Small sailing cruise in the Caribean. Couple of dozen guests, new anchorage every night. Lots of time for swimming, snorkelling, hiking etc.

I've been told that all the cruises have casinos now ... or nearly all anyway. Didn't check that statement out fully, but seems like it.
