David, tomorrow is my and my wifes 20th aniversary. Misery loves company. Just kidding. It has gone very fast. We love to vacation in Florida. Namely Orlando. Love Disney and all the things to do down there. My wife has a web site with a ton of rental properties listed and she e-mails about 10 or so and makes them offers on houses. There are a ton for rent down there. We normally pay about $65-$85 per night for a 3-4 bedroom house. Some tell us GOOD LUCK,(some are not that nice) while others go for it. I think we have done that the past 4 years and have been shocked every time. Many homes just sit empty. Many are owned by people in England. (Don't know why.) But good for anyone who wants to vacation there. Dealing privately cuts costs for you. A little leg work will save you a ton. Myrtle beach in SC is pretty nice at that time also

I lived in Buffalo for 40 years so be careful, it could still be snowing in Niagara Falls in April. I now live in South Carolina and don't miss the cold or snow at all.

Good luck and enjoy. Mark

Congrats David,
Me and my better half spent the wedding night at the drag strip and then we headed off to Gatlinburg (sp?) TN and had a great time, almost as much as we did at the track. Congrats again
