50th Birthday
« on: December 03, 2017, 11:02:56 PM »
Thereís 3 of us hitting the big 5-0 towards the end of next year and weíre looking to mark the occasion by doing something out of the ordinary. All well travelled, family men with plenty of Ďlifeí experiences, would be willing to travel and spend a few quid if necessary but not essential. Vegas has been mentioned but Iíd like to do something less obvious although I will go if I have to  ;D

Any suggestions?? Probably 4/5 days max would be the only restriction.

If youíre golfers take a bucket list golf trip. Maybe try and take in the Masters.

How about a week out in Africa building a school or something like that. Give something back. Your already well travelled as u say.

Iím a golfer and The Masters is definitely on my bucket list unfortunately neither of the other 2 are so thatís unlikely to get the vote..

Vegas is on my list for that big one in 4 years but funny enough I was chatting to wife about my two places to go before Iím physically unable, Machu Picchu being one and base camp Everest... obviously take more than your 4 days target! Though Iíd be one for a trek!

Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

Didn't like Vegas but if you decide to go there do yourselves and spend a few days at the Grand Canyon.

If you are thinking of Vegas type stuff, worth checking out Havasupai Falls in Grand Canyon. You can camp down there, which is in the Havasupai Reservation.
