Inspired by Tommynomads geeklist 'Bon Voyage!' ( http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/33027 ) I decided to make a geeklist for us geeks who are traveling somewhere this summer. Please tell us where you're going, why, and if there is going to be any gaming or gaming related events during the travel.

Me and the wife is going to Denmark for a week and as we're staying in the south of Jutland we'll make a trip to Legoland. Me and my wife loves to visit theme-/amusement- parks and one of my big goals in life is to go to the USA and ride some of the really big roller coasters at the major amusement parks 'over there'.
Gaming though? We'll bring some two-player games with us for late evenings, and I hope we can make a trip to Kiel or Hamburg one day and maybe pick up a few new german games like Aquaretto and SdJ winner Keltis

After visiting places like Holland, Belgium and Denmark, our slow tour of Northern Europe continues.

This year, we're going to Norway (our first time there).

We'll be spending a few days in Bergen, then renting a cottage in the countryside. I'll take a few games with me which may or may not get played.

Our visit coincides with Bergen's annual gaming festival, though I didn't know this when we made plans (honestly!).

I'm open to other suggestions for things to do in the area (gaming or otherwise).

We're going to the Outer Banks of North Carolina, and I will be doing some gaming. In past years I brought only Settlers, but I've found BGG since my last visit, so I'll bring more this year.

For Sale - My primary gateway game
Daytona 500 - A great, and easy to explain, racing game
Zombie in my Pocket - I designed it, they're playing it
Blackbeard - Hey, we're on the ocean
Catan - People still request it
Star Wars: Epic Duels - Maybe, if I can convince them to not spill on the board
Betrayal at House on the Hill - If I can borrow it.

Disney, in Orlando, FL- extended-family trip with 7 adults and 7 kids. Next year, we go back to the simpler and cheaper Tour de Sisters-in-law, driving up to Vermont and New Hampshire (I prefer to go north in the summer).

My dream summer vacation to Iceland is just never going to happen...

Myself, Mrs Jethro, Jethro and Jethroess jnrs are all off to hopefully sunny Dawlish, just hope they do actually know what the sun looks like because I've forgotten here in South Wales.
Pandemic will be joining me as we cant stop at the moment along with old faithfuls Carcassonne, Lost Cities and maybe Tikal. Just waiting for Taluva in a maths trade and that can join us for the trip too.

Roll on 19.7.2008.

Sorry I couldn't find a better game for the list.

Shortly, we'll be heading up to Rhode Island from South Carolina. It'll take a couple of days (driving, unless Amtrak comes up with a super deal for the Crescent). Once there, we'll stay at my grandmother-in-law's house and our kids will be around their similarly-aged cousins. So, we may bring along a few kid games, likely Max, Secret Door, Kids on Stage, Hedbanz for Kids and the like.

Then a few days later, we'll head up for a short weekend trip to Chatanooga for GameFestSouth, a gaming convention. It's set in a train-themed hotel (Chatanooga Choo-Choo) so our kids should like that. They also have shuttles to the aquarium and kid museum, so we'll go to those two places. Not sure if we'll actually go into the game room or not. So much to do, so little time...

I just make day trips in the summer. I live where people come to in the summer: central New Hampshire, between the Lakes region and the White Mountains, so there's no reason to go away. I'll be hiking this weekend off the Kancamagus Highway on Saturday, then visiting Squam Lake on Sunday.

The usual weekend gaming at my house - we'll play whatever it is we choose that day to play ...

On this map, I live roughly in the space labeled "White Mountains Central."

We are visiting North America- Toronto (and Niagara), New York, Bethlehem PA (where we are going to a wedding) and Gettysburg, where we will study history and visit the nearby Codoros Park disc golf course. In fact we appear to be visiting disc golf courses all over the place. I have a feeling that it might be too hot to play comfortably though.

Flying out tomorrow- leaving home in about half an hour. Taking Race for the Galaxy, which we haven't tried yet, to keep us amused, along with a handful of other card games, Travel Settlers, St Petes, of course, and Niagara as a wedding present.

It's very exciting- haven't flown across the Atlantic since I was 9 years old. My moral objection to long haul flights is being temporarily suspended; I doubt that we will do it again in the next 20 years!

Shortly, I am headed up to the Adirondack Park in upstate NY. My side of the family is gathering in a cabin on Fourth Lake of the Fulton Chain of Lakes.

Both of my brothers are gamers and they are both in driving distance so I will be relying on their game selection.

My wife and I will be taking a journey to China in September. We'll visit a friend for one evening and then join a tour group, staying in Beijing, Xian, and Shanghai.

This will be both of our first times away from North America, so we're excited. I'm trying to limit what I pack to very portable games.

Games to bring:

Felix: The Cat in the Sack (As a gift)
Catan Travel Edition or Catan Dice Game
Zombie in My Pocket
Coloretto or Coloretto Amazonas
Monopoly Express
Travel Blokus (Maybe)

Camping in a yurt on the Oregon Coast. We already had the Disney theme park vacation this spring; while that was fun, the slower pace of camping actually sounds a lot better to me. Nothing beats building sand castles with the kids on the beach, hiking in the woods, cooking over the fire, and the spectacular scenery that the coast has to offer.

We have a time share on kauai (our place pictured below - nice eh)... we kept saying "In 2007 we'll go back"... then 2008.. now 2010... expensive flight.

Ordinarily, we'd be spending this weekend blissing out to the world's best music in Bird's Hill Park.
The Winnipeg Folk Festival is our family's Christmas & New Year's rolled into one.

But we're far away from family these days. Luckily, post-folkfest there's a family reunion for my soul-sister's wedding in Belfast, Norn Irn. The trek from Aotearoa New Zealand is a long one. Our stops this summer will look like this:
Bangkok
Franfurt
Liberec
Geneve
Oegstgeest (a suburb of Leiden)
Almere (a planned city, one I'm stoked to see after the disappointment of Canberra)
Belfast
Apeldoorn
Krabi (a few days on the beach after a month of family in small spaces)
Bangkok,
before returning home to an empty bank account and a full apartment: my BIL is joining the 3 of us in our Auckland 2BR. Good thing he's bringing Mr. Jack, Fairy Tale, Blue Moon City.

I'll be in Denver in about 4 weeks time.

A high school classmate came out to L.A. from Denver to attend our school's 20 year reunion. I had no desire to attend that function, but I wanted to spend time with her, as she was the one high school friend I regretted losing contact with over the years. I took her and her husband out to dinner and she and I caught up on old times. They extended an invitation to me, and I chose to take them up on it.

While I'm out there, I may think about corrupting their kids by introducing them to some educational games (the 10 Days series quickly comes to mind). I'm also planning to attend the Tuesday night group out in Denver to see how things are over there.

If Agricola gets shipped in time, I may bring my copy along. Thank goodness I'm flying Southwest...I can still check-in two bags, without any extra fees.
