I really need vacation, and I'd like to go somewhere that has the most edifying potential. European vacations are great (I'm in the US), but they are so at a considerably high cost; also, I'd really like to get away from the pace of my normal life. I was thinking of something like New Mexico Skies for the following reasons: It has edifying potential (worthwhile observations, ccd imaging, etc.), it's relatively secluded (relaxing), and it's relatively inexpensive (I could go there a few times per year). Any other ideas for getaways that satiate the geeks in us? Anything that doesn't include a morning trip to Starbucks and traffic is great, but I want to learn something new. Thanks!
