Are you traveling for the holidays?

It's the holiday season and we're just wondering if you'll be traveling anywhere to visit family/friends for the occasion.

No matter where you go or if you go anywhere, Happy Holidays from LucasForums!




have a suggestion for the lf poll? pm me

I think we're staying home; we might be going to my grandmother's on the lake.

Much of my family has moved out of Pennsylvania - some to Florida, some to Texas, some to Mexico.. (no, I'm not hispanic )

Probably just have dinner at my parents'.

Alas, I'm being dragged on a multi-day trip to the scourge of the world: Orlando, Florida. For four days, I'll be enjoying the most excellent Disney World, and all of its everlasting joys.

I'll never make it.

First Christmas my parents are unable to cook (health reasons), so I’m smoking a turkey and purchasing everything else from the Honey Baked Ham store. I’m also purchasing a Ham in case the turkey is uneatable. It was only suppose to be the immediate family, but last count is 20.

We'll either travel the whole 4 miles to my dad's house for Christmas, or the 14 miles or so to my aunt and uncle's house. Otherwise, not going much of anywhere, and we're going to be homebodies for the week that I'm off work with the kiddos. Of course, we're getting about 13 inches of snow tonight so there's no travel for the next day or so, anyway.

Well, there's traveling and Traveling ...I've never considered going somewhere that is located less than 500M away as real "traveling" but to answer the initial post I'll be driving +- 130 miles x 6 times between the 21st and the 26th of Dec. I hope the roads won't be too bad.

1700+ miles traveled (there and back) to go see my girlfriend and her family in Michigan. All alone the whole way in my car. Do I win a prize or something?

I'll be off to my folks place which is like 100 miles or so from me. Easy enough of a drive. Though we've had a bit of snow lately which is a bit unusual.....should make things interesting.

I might travel 2 miles to taco bell or culvers to get lunch or go to a friends house. And that will be the extent of my holiday travels. I know, I'm really boring.

Eventually, you win her.

How's that engagement ring coming?

We like to stay home and watch the kids play with their stuff. Most everyone comes to our house for the most part..

Merry Christmas every one.

Just staying at home. My parents work today and tommarrow, but my sister and her finacee came down to visit us; so not very lonely. Then on Friday, my 4 nieces are coming down with my step brother and we'll be doing a big christmas thing then.
