Fall Weekend Getaways

Fall Weekend Getaway
With the new school year, and all the extracurricular activities upon us, a weekend getaway may be in order. This is the time of year when most family’s feel the stress and drain of pulling it all together. Sometimes, a quick getaway can break up the monotony and bring a bit of freshness to an old routine.

1. Kids Need A Break Too

This mini vacation doesn’t need to far, nor expensive. The fall colors are at their peak this time of year. Take a scenic drive, a hike, go camping one last time this year. Getting away before the winter cold and holiday craziness hits us all is a great stress reliever for everyone. Including the kiddos.

2. Pumpkins, Pumpkins and More Pumpkins

If you’re short on, think about taking a drive to some good’ole fashion pumpkin farms. Drink some cider and take in the fresh fall air. Let the kids run around and use up some of the energy we wish we still had.

3. Pack a Picnic

Eating on the road can get expensive. Park picnic, save money and have fun. If you leave on Friday afternoon, be sure to pack enough for the weekend. Don’t forget the blankets, toys, books, and drinks.
4. Planning is Everything

Planning your weekend getaway is the ticket to a stress-free mini vacation. Get the kids involved. Have the older kids, write theirs on the list of items they may need to pack. Make a list of places you intend to visit along the way. Where you will be staying, and when you plan to return. Stay flexible, but try to adhere to your scheduled and most of all, relax.

I Started out in 1976 trying out to sing in bands but no bands were interested in me. In 1977 I started playing guitar. The individual that was teaching me (who for now will remain anonymous) told me that I would NEVER learn how to play guitar because I had no sense of rhythm. I joined my first band in 1978 called "Dead Center" in Jacksonville, Florida. I played an Aspen guitar, black; a Les Paul copy and in 1981. I gave that guitar to the teacher who said I'd never learn to play. I wrote my first song in 1979 or '80. Over the years I have been in many bands but my passion has been songwriting. I have written well over 100 songs and though the early ones were kind of rough around the edges, I think that most of them could be dusted off and given a new facelift. Today I am still working on my songs. Currently I can play guitar, bass, keyboard, drums, harmonica, and Native American flute. The flutes that I play are ones that I made myself. My guitars are the Epiphone G-400 faded, an Ibanez RG370 DX, an Epiphone G 1275 double neck guitar. My acoustic guitars are an Alvarez 12 string and an old Kay guitar. My drum set is a Peace drum set. I do my recording on a Zoom HD16.
