Haven't had a break of any kind in 20 yrs, why start now? Breaks are for wussies.

I'm betting Obama-era gas prices have precluded many spring break plans.

Yep. To Lawrence, actually for March Break!

Spring Break is when we who are retired stay home.

Spring Break is the best time to stay around and do research! There's no undergrads on campus!

Nope no spring break trip again. My wife works for the school district (not as a teacher or protected the LEA) and since her gross pay was cut in last years budget, we had to cut back.

I never went anywhere as an minimally- or un-employed student, but since I became a grown up, we go somewhere every Spring Break. This year it's a Caribbean cruise. It's not always that grand. One year it was camping in Oklahoma. Before that we went hiking in New Mexico. Another year we just spent a couple of days in St. Louis. I guess it makes a difference if you have kids in school since this is the only real vacation time between Christmas and Memorial Day.

Sending my kid out of town so I'll have a real break in my own house.

I'm going to rent a Corvette and drive down to Juarez.

What's the worst that could happen?

What could possibly beat commuting to work everyday? Now THAT is a real trip :-( (Damn college students!)

I went to the Grand Canyon once for a spring break. It was a little cold there but the air was clear and I was able to book a mule trip that someone had canceled. Those are very hard to get during the high season.

AMTRAK goes to a couple of places close to the Grand Canyon, and they don't charge for extra luggage, so you can take camping equipment. There are lots of places to rent or buy gear in Flagstaff or the Grand Canyon General store. Even if you spring for a rental car, which isn't absolutely necessary as there are lots of shuttle services there, it can be a great trip for the money.

Be sure and check the weather forecast for Flagstaff before you go. It snows a lot there this time of year.

Not unless I can arrange a "precedent date."

Besides college kids that do not have jobs, who does that.......
