    I'll be drinking mass quantities of beer, eating ribs, and hanging out at my house with friends and animals. All in Arizona. I'm not sure if they'll have fireworks this year, they may cancel them since we're in a 5 year drought, one would think we'd always be in a drought considering we're in an arid climate.. but I digress. I'll be drinking beer.
    When Jesus said "love your enemies", he probably didn't mean kill them.

    Moab or Telluride. Hot Hot Hot!

    Beautiful, stark country. Makes me think of Jack Kerouac and Wile E. Coyote and Edward Abbey. No better way to spend the country's birthday.

    3rd - Taking a 1/2 day, going to drink beer at the Milwaukee Ale House, then stumble over to Summerfest to drink more beer and watch the BoDeans and hopefully Wilco.

    4th - Going to my girlfriends aunts house to drink beer and hang out on a lake

    I'll be enjoying the "Best Fourth in the North" (original, huh?) with my in/outlaws in Ticonderoga, NY.

    Leaving work at lunch tomorrow so me and the fiance can catch a flight down to South Cacalackey. Plans are to spend the 4th hanging in the country with the folks and will then consume mass amounts of domestic beer (it is Independance Day after all) at a cook-out at my sisters house. I'll then spend all day Saturday on the lake eating burgers, sea-dooing, party barging and burning my pale white butt to a crisp...I can't wait.

    For the 4th of July... nothing... :p
    For the 18th of September...BBQ! Although the 18/9 isn't the independence day of Chile :p
    The true day of independence is the 12th of Febuary of 1818, not the 18th of September of 1810. In 1810 we weren't even dreaming of being independant....:p

    I'm going hiking and camping in NH's White Mountains later today and tomorrow. For the 4th, my college friends and I all get together at a friends place on the beach in Gloucester, Mass - then off to Cape Cod for the weekend.

    Happy 4th everyone!

    I'll be out on Lake Pend Oreille on my new boat that I got only yesterday. I also have a tee time on Saturday. And of course, drink plenty of beer.
    I think that one of the great signs of security is the ability to just walk away.

    A morning ride, and possibly an afternoon swim- although the pool will undoubtedly be packed.
    Friday night I'll be at VP Fair on the Arch Grounds, watch some fireworks, staying at a hotel at Union Station for the night with friends. Should be a good time.

    First and foremost: Drink Beer. Wife just back from Colorady and brought back a selection of New Belgium barley pops, plus I've got a 12er of New Glarus Spotted Cow Ale that we got from our trip to La Crosse a few weeks ago.

    Secondly: a ride tomorrow with wife(got off work, yahoo!) 4th spending with my brothers family watching fireworks. 5th sitting on a Lake and drinking more beer. 6th probably just recovering from three days of revelry.
    You're more boring than you know.

    We will gladly welcome all of your downstate dollars in our neck of the proverbial woods.

    Sounds like a fun trip!

    Sister's birthday tomorrow-so I'll probably take the day off

    Not sure about the 4th itself. I really, really don't want to deal with the traffic, so I may stay home and walk four blocks to Vacaville's own hometown fireworks display.

    I'll do a lot of bicycling and hiking, too, I hope.

    No plans for the Fourth, but on the 5th the Great Circus Train will be stopping in Whitewater on its annual trip around the state.

    The way my life's been going lately, I don't know what I'm doing 2 minutes from now, let alone this weekend!

    I hope to take Kylie to the fireworks on Friday, but I really have no clue what I'll be doing this weekend....
