I’m taking my first vacation next week.  I have $415.23 that I can use for my vacation.  Does anyone know where I can go for that amount?  I’ll probably just save it and spend it on my wife and kid.  I wouldn’t mind being able to hit the road for a few days though.

That’s the oddest number I’ve ever seen.  Why did you include the cents?  Do you really think 23 cents will make a difference in what people tell you to do?  I say forget about traveling anywhere with that amount of money.  Go out to eat with your family and take your kid to the zoo.  Find some local stuff to spend that money on.  It’ll go further and you’ll have more fun.

I agree with roofer-forever.  You probably could take a one tank trip some place for a day or two.  It would probably be best to stick around there.  I’m sure there are plenty of things you can do for that much money in your area.

That’s what I’m going to do.  It’s not really what I wanted to do.  I don’t really have much choice.  I think after a day or two I’ll be climbing the walls though.  I don’t want to spend too much time here.  I’m also going to try to find a babysitter and take my wife out for a good supper.  She deserves it and it’ll be a lot of fun.

Take it easy and relax.  There’s no need to go anywhere.  Have fun and spend time with your family.  You’ll have other vacations to do the exciting stuff.  Eat food you normally wouldn’t and just kick back.

Save some of that money for a rainy day.  The best advice I can give you is to be thrifty when you’re young.  Let the money build up and enjoy it when you’re older.  Plus, you never know when you’ll need the money down the line.  Prepare today for whatever may happen tomorrow.

I didn’t do much at all today.  I just hung out and chilled as they say.  I’m not too sure if this is what I really want to do.  It felt good to spend the day with my kid though.  I don’t think they knew quite how to act with daddy being home all day.

I don’t know how old your child is.  If it’s a young child, then they aren’t going to enjoy the vacation.  You’re not going to want to drive half way across the country with an angry toddler in the backseat.  Relax and enjoy yourself.  Go watch a movie or do something out of the ordinary.  You’ve got enough money to enjoy yourself locally.

I’m already getting pretty bored with this vacation.  It’s not like anything I could have ever thought it was.  I don’t get the desire to do nothing at all.  It drives me up one side of the wall and down the other.

I enjoy every minute of my vacations.  I wouldn’t mind being on one right this minute.  It’s been awhile since I’ve been able to put my feet up and relax.  Get yourself another beer and have a cheeseburger.  It’s all about enjoying yourself.

I would have taken out my boat and gone fishing. Nothing like getting out in the fresh air and dropping a line. Most of the time it doesn't even matter if I catch anything, it's just nice to be alone in the piece and quiet.

We went to the zoo and my kid liked it a lot.  My wife and I also went out for a really nice supper.  We did other things too and I really enjoyed it.  I didn’t expect to enjoy taking time off of work.  I saw how happy my kid was to see me and that made it all worthwhile.

I’m glad to hear you had a good time.  Traveling can be difficult with little ones.  I think its best to just relax and enjoy them at that age.  Save the money for when you can take a real vacation with them.

I told you since day one that’s what you should do.  Save your money for later on in life.  Travel once the kids are grown and then you can enjoy it.  I now have a lot of money for ice cream cones when I travel now that my kids are all grown up.

I’ll have to remember this.  I would like to take my kid to a water park one of these days.  When they’re big enough to enjoy it.  That’s down the road some time.
