Staycation on Earth

The earth appreciates that I need less travel in my life that I did when I was younger.  I was a carbon hog, flying all the time. I enjoyed it and will not regret it now that I like staying at home better than ever. I got while the getting was very good, and now I fly with much more selective purposes and goals in mind. I saw a lot of the world, and plan to see more of it. I also plan to concentrate on the wonderful options available in Arizona that require little time in transit.  I like the idea of maximum tourism time and minimum time on the road.  We have stayed at resorts around Tucson and in Scottsdale that make us happy for different reasons.  These days any hotel stay has to include our coon hound, Artemisia, who is a hotel fan.  A short get away with the dog that includes some dining and walking in nature works as a retreat for the whole family. I usually like to get in the water, but since I do that at home all the time it is not my first priority when looking for a weekend location near home.  There are many benefits the staycation offers the holiday maker as well as Mother Earth:

  • Save travel expenses
  • Save travel time
  • Overpack if you want, no penalty
  • Bring foods and drinks with you to suit your tastes
  • Invite local friends to join you for happy hour or a hike during your stay
  • Bring pets, no drama
  • Supports jobs in our own vicinity
  • Can introduce new restaurants or entertainment venues for future enjoyment

Consider a place near home that makes you want to get away, but not very far away.  You might find you will come back from holiday much more rested and perhaps in harmony with the earth.

we brits are very lucky to have Europe on our doorstep – we can get across by train or ferry and there’s plenty to explore there

C.P. – I am there also! Mother died last November, and we ended up buying my sister’s 1/2 of the farm. Financially, it was probably not wise but sentiment overcame caution. It overlooks the first Acme Brick plant built around 1891 just after the last Indian raid and killing in the area. Acme Brick was founded by my great grandfather. The farm has been in the family for nearly 100 years. Good thing we seem content with the simple pleasures life offers. I hope it does not prove to be the proverbial money pit. God help us! C. Rick

I believe that the history is a comfort, and those ancestors are watching over you with pride, Cousin Rick. God is helping you.
