    For any of the guys and gals on the forum who are planning a vacation, just a
    little reminder. Please let someone know that you're going to be outta Dodge
    for a few days, a week or two or however long you plan on being away.

    There are some of us paranoid types who, if you're MIA for a few days, we
    tend to worry. Must be the father instinct kicking in...

    And, we want you to have all the fun you can stand, but..... come back
    safe and sound.

    Charles

    Good idea Charles...

    Me and my wife will be flying to the island of Crete from Aug 31 to Sept 14.

    Ah I cant wait. Warm water, beach, sun, Greek Ruins, good hiking in the Samaria Gorge and best of all good Greek food!

    Let me know when you are in Amsterdam or Switzerland or at any point in Germany.

    Me and the wife could try and drive down or up to visit.

    Well, I hadn't planned it this way, but I guess this is the place to let us all
    know if/when you're going away. Be it vacation, holiday or jail time, put up
    a little note so we all know. And... enjoy your stay !

    What? Airplanes aren't photo friendly objects?!?! hehe My wife puts up with a lot when it comes to me taking off with my photo gear. I don't think she would be too cool with me coming home with bikini team pics. (But the stories I'd be able to tell my grandkids...)

    I am sure we will, thanks. I want to find out if there are any WW2 wrecks or aircraft crashes in the area I can dive to.

    Hi Wurger and Charles,

    I'm glad I'm back. I spend a wonderful holiday in Wageningen. I spend 2 days walking on the "Grebbelinie", the remains of the Dutch defence line in 1940. It's a beautiful landscape for sure with a lot of history (not only WWII) and a lot of nature. Maybe I'll post some photo's sometime. Took it easy for the rest of the time :D
