5 0 GROUP TRAVEL LE ADER T H E We are making our annual summer trek to Grayling, Michigan, to visit my parents and go f ly fishing and canoeing on the Au Sable River. My kids are also begging me to go to the beach again this year, so hopefully sun and sand are also in our future. — Kelly Tyner, DIRECTOR OF SALES AND MARKETING This summer, I will be taking a weeklong trip from Vancouver to Toronto on a train. I've never been to Canada or spent the night on a train, so needless to say, I'm very excited! — Savannah Osbourn, STAFF WRITER Disney. — Stacey Bowman, DIRECTOR, ADVERTISING SALES I have a new niece in Atlanta that I haven't met yet, so my family will be taking a long weekend to go see the baby and spend some time with my broth- er's family. They are members of the Atlanta Aquarium, so my daughter and his always enjoy taking an excursion to the aquarium together when we are in town. — Brian Jewell, EXECUTIVE EDITOR We're celebrating my husband's 30th birthday in Georgia's Golden Isles, where he grew up. He loves sea turtles, so the highlight of our trip will be the "Ride with the Night Patrol" pro- gram alongside the Georgia Sea Turtle Center research team; we'll get to ride along with the researchers and help to map nests and look for sea turtles dur- ing the height of the season. — Ashley Ricks, CIRCULATION MANAGER We'll be spending a lot of time in western Kentucky on Lake Barkley, a large TVA impoundment that borders Land Between the Lakes. We do long weekends there and may spend the week of July 4th there as well. We have a ski boat, so we visit numerous outdoor restaurants and bars on the lake with family members and friends who come for a visit. — Mac Lacy, PUBLISHER EDITOR'S NOTE Welcome to Staff Sound-Off, the monthly column where our staff members answer questions about their travel practices and preferences. We hope you enjoy these tips. If you have a question you'd like to see us answer, send it to me and it may appear in a future issue.
