How fast can you get ready ?




Last Tuesday we did out taxes and got back a lot more then I had expected, jokingly said Lets go to the beach, Wife was for it I just needed to be sure I didn't have a Dr appointment as I was waiting for the DR office to schedule one and had not heard from them as of Thursday by noon So I called them only to get voice mail.

Looked into a place to stay, found one that we had rented before was open ,called got $100 off for being a last minute reservation. So it was on. This was about noon , Reservation was for Friday the next day , Wanted to leave early so we had 2 hours to pack and head out, Very proud of my wife for getting ready so fast. She didn't have the time to be picky just the essentials and we can buy what ever we needed when getting there

So this trip worked out well for a last minute trip. so far Just hope I find a big drum before We leave.

Have a great time! I'd love to do something like that, but with both of us working full time (DH's employer requires vacation request 3 months ahead of time), 2 teenagers in school....maybe someday!

We usually pack the night before anyway, so we could probably be ready in a few hours. Some things may be forgotten, but we would have clothes, swimsuits and sunscreen.

Thats my dream...to one day just spontaneously take off for the beach. I hope you have a great time and catch your drum!


RE: How fast can you get ready ?




Another inspiration Was wife is going back to work soon so we needed to take advantage of the time

Spontaneous is a word that will never be used to describe me. Theeth smiley

Rick, we stay ready. Beach box stays packed, fishing gear and beach chairs ready. All we do is wash up any dirty dishes, take out trash, water plants, call pet sitter and pack 3 changes of clothes. Buy 2 days of food when we get there. Can leave on the sperm of the moment. The advantage of being retired.

Hatteras, I never plan too far ahead. I always act on the sperm of the moment.

It took every ounce of will power I had to not reply after reading that. I'm so happy someone else did it! Big grin

I love the planning but would also love to grab my toothbrush and a beach chair and head out. Good for you!


RE: How fast can you get ready ?




I could be ready in less than tow hours. My wife not so much.

Last summer it was about 105 degrees in PA. Same in the OBX.

I decided at around 7 AM that I would go tent camping in Vermont. Called the campground, reserved my site for three days, and loaded up the car.

Daughter and I were on the road with tent, sleeping bags fishing rods and grilling equipment packed and two kayaks on the roof in less than two hours.
