What was a memorable summer vacation for you?
It’s that time of year when Brian Barhorst takes his summer vacation to spend his Canteen earnings. So we wondered: what memories have other Choice Oners made on summer vacations?
Dane Sommer, Roadway Engineer We went to the beach every year, but I don’t recall what we did at the beach. What I do remember is removing the middle seats of our Ford Aerostar van so we could lie on the van floor and following where we were going on the paper road atlas. Jacqueline Huelskamp, Landscape Architect My family once stayed in remote cabin in Canada. The cabin did not have electricity and had three large bunk rooms. My brothers and I thought we could sleep in separate rooms from our parents but ended up scaring ourselves so much we all ended up in the same bunk room. Adam Gill,
When I was about 8-years-old my extended family went on a cruise. We kids all got to run around together without much supervision and the only rules were “don’t get lost” and “don’t jump off the ship.” Casey Reichert, Wastewater Engineer My parents loaded up our Oldsmobile Silhouette and took us through a drive-thru safari. The giraffe put its whole head through the open driver side window. It was terrifying. Michael Seeger, Site Engineer I was 3 or 4 years old when my family went to Badlands National Park in South Dakota. I fell down and busted my knees open—I still have faint scars on my knees. So at that age I was pretty stuck on the fact that the Badlands were BAD.
