Definitely in for a get together. Death valley would work well for me for a get away.
I started looking at vacation time and finances and a south of the border run would have to be abreviated.
The other rides would be interesting also.
The traveler is active; he goes strenuously in search of people, of adventure, or experience. The tourist is passive; he expects interesting things to happen to him. DANIEL J. BOORSTIN, attributed, Voyages of Discover
