Is #1 a vacation for the humans or for the dogs? ;)
I'll take #4 anytime of the year!

Holly Ruggiero said...

I’ve never been dog sledding. There another storm where I am right now so staying hidden indoors works too. ;)

Ann Best said...

I lived in Laie, Hawaii, from 1975-1976. I would take this one again!! Loved it.

I'm amazed how you come up with these lists every week! You are talented in more ways than one hundred!

Have a great weekend.

Colette said...

I am definitely ready for spring!

Carol Kilgore said...

Laura - Whatever works!

Holly - I was gonna add that :)

Ann - Thanks for the kind words.

Colette - Same here.

Teresa aka JW said...

1)Great list, 2)I would like to go dog sledding 3)I'm frantically calling spring like I would a lost dog, "Here, Spring, come Spring, NOW get over here."

Linda Kage said...

I'm with you; when is Spring again??

Jan Morrison said...

I'm having a vacation today. A lovely winter vacation in my home. It is snowing and I don't have to drive anywhere. I'm going to catch up on stuff and do a lot of reading. That's my favorite kind of vacation - no lineups - no security - just a cozy fire and a good book with clients rebooked to next week. Yay!

The Happy Whisk said...

Jan's snow holiday, sounds like my kind of weekend. Carol, sending you warm wishes and sunny flowers.

Joanne said...

It's snowing here again today, about 6 fresh inches :) It would be hard to leave for any destination with the winter we've been having here up north ... We're snowed in!!

kimberlyloomis said...

I'm all over numbers 8-4. :) I love the snow, but after three in the last week and a half I'm ready for a bit of a reprieve. ;-)

Lydia K said...

I'd go with "the opposite hemisphere" because it's too awesome an answer!

lbdiamond said...

LOL!

Personally, I'd vote for New Zealand. ;)-

Mason Canyon said...

I'm so ready for spring. Have a great weekend.

VR Barkowski said...

Normally, I'd say Mexico since the whether in January is perfect. I'm just not so sure how safe it is these days.

I'm up for the opposite hemisphere, though!

Carol Kilgore said...

Teresa - So would I. Keep calling!

Linda - Not until March, officially. Maybe it will arrive early.

Jan - Sounds good to me :)

Happy Whisk - Oooh, thanks. Sunny here today, but COLD!

Joanne - Snowed in is fun for a little while. A very little while, for me.

Carol Kilgore said...

Kimberly - I've had that feeling before.

Lydia - Blushing :)

lbdiamond - One day I want to visit New Zealand. It's on my top ten travel list!

Mason - You, too.

VR - That's exactly why I didn't include Mexico. Sorry, Clarissa! I really love the country, though.

Talli Roland said...

I'm definitely ready for spring!

N. R. Williams said...

Loved the list. But I'll pass on all the very cold outside things to do.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Someplace where the snow is three feet deep and I'm trapped for a week sounds good.

Elspeth Antonelli said...

One of my friends is about to leave for a dog-sledding snow-shoeing vacation in Banff. I, meanwhile, sit at home and look out at the rain. Drip, drip, drip.

Carol Kilgore said...

Talli - London has had quite a winter this year.

Nancy - Some of them I like. Don't think I'd care for ice fishing.

Alex - Stock up on food, wine, chocolate, and firewood :)

Elspeth - Look on the bright side - no frostbitten toes.

Talei said...

ha! Whilst I love skiing -or rather sliding about on the slopes inelegantly... ;) I'm now putting the Carribbean top of my Winter list.

Cheers lovely, have a wonderful weekend!

Terry Odell said...

My first winter in our new place. I'm enjoying staying home.

Hannah Kincade said...

Oh, I love dog sledding so much! I can't wait to go again. It was so worth all the hard work and the pulled groin muscle.

Summer Ross said...

great list- I have4 never been skiing or dog sledding or to the Caribbean. But they all sound like fun :)

Jennifer Shirk said...

I'll settle for Florida! I'm ready for spring any time now!

Clarissa Draper said...

I'm not a fan of doing anything that involves the cold so going south is the only way for me.

Arlee Bird said...

This dog sledding thing has been big of late since that book came out. I'm not big on the cold weather things so anything else sounds okay.

Carol Kilgore said...

Talei - Any beach. Any where.

Terry - I know you are.

Hannah - Ouch!

Summer - Put them on your wish list.

Jennifer - I think most of us are.

Clarissa - You're in luck - there are still places south of you!

Arlee - Probably most of us would prefer warmth.

Medeia Sharif said...

I'm nowhere near the environment for dog sledding, but I think it would be fun.

Have a great weekend.

MT said...

I think it would be fun to go to that ice hotel in Iceland. Have you heard of it? If you Google it, you'll see some nifty images. Too bad it's so far away. My igloo in the back yard doesn't even begin to compare. ;)

The Happy Whisk said...

I've always wanted to go to Hawaii.

Carol Kilgore said...

Medeia - Same for me.

MT - Duh, YES! I totally forgot about that. I saw it on TV. It would've definitely made the list if I'd remembered it. Thanks!

Happy Whisk - So-so for me. I like Hawaii Five-0, though :)

The Happy Whisk said...

Hawii Five-O, Carol you crack me up. So glad I found your blog.

Wendy aka Quillfeather said...

So many great choices!

But, perhaps the opposite hemisphere :)

Carol Kilgore said...

Happy Whisk - Me, too!

Wendy - Yeah, I can go with that.

Conda V. Douglas said...

Well, Carol, I have a friend who has malamutes who would agree with you about the dog sledding!

Carol Kilgore said...

How cool! I don't think malamutes would do real well in Texas heat.
