    Anyone have any fun ideas in the Midwest for a few days?

    I would like to take Mini EZ on a little road trip on spring break, and I'm wondering if there is something out there that you have enjoyed .

    Thanks!

    In context I'm a 51-year old male with a College Sophomore as a daughter. Ya, I'll brag. She's never got less than an "A" in her college work, and started college with 30-semester hours based on High School AP work Started school on money we saved & loans. Participated in ROTC last year as a volunteer and this year earned a full scholarship, Debate Team, and works part time to help with living expenses.

    Funny, just yesterday I was talking to a co-worker about Spring Break ideas. This co-worker is a great gal in her late 20's. Another co-worker's daughter is going to New Orleans for break. This year our daughter is taking a crushing load with everything she's doing and just wanted to come home to chill. If she makes the final cut (**fingers crossed**) for Air Force Field Training this summer that is the last major hurdle for her scholarship for the next couple of years.

    So, they ask me as a Dad what I thought about a Spring Break trip. So I thought about it for a minute and said that if she makes the final cut I'd really like to send her on a memorable Spring Break trip to say "Thank You" for working so hard and being so responsible and that as her Dad I'd have no problems funding the trip. He scholarship will have saved us about $35,000-$45,000 in expenses.

    "OK", they say "Where to?". So I tell them, "Well I'm still her Dad, so I was thinking Alaska. To cold to hang our at the beach and you have to wear a lot of cloths to stay warm."

    Book her into some holiday camp thing, grab a hot guy, and party like it's your last week on earth.

    *I have a spare Marine, if that helps.*
