Question of the Week: Traveling Solo

While the lone range rider may be an image from the past recalled in poems and old movies. Many of us still find we have to travel alone. A few weeks ago we asked you to call in with your solo stories from the road. Here they are!

Next Week:

In the small town where I grew up, there's a river called the Ganaraska - it's one of those lazy winding waterways perfect for wasting a Saturday afternoon with an inner tube. We all watch now as municipal officials move to brand their towns with distinctive events - in Port Hope, Ontario, they're institutionalized this pastime by setting aside one weekend each spring for what they now call "Float your Fanny down The Ganny." It is unbelievably corny - local businesses sponsor silly rafts - but, I go when I can, though until this moment, it's not the sort of thing I was willing to admit. What about those places you visit that, you've been reluctant to talk about? Perhaps your friends just don't understand your love for silly bus tours, polka competitions, or cheap midway games. Time to confess...

Call or email us and share your story. The number is 888-SAV-TRAV. That's 888-728-8728.
