Volunteer and Visit Paradise

The New York Times had an article a few days ago about volunteering with the Appalachian Mountain Club in St. John, USVI. You could get a reduced rate in a large tent for $55/night vs. the usual $90. This would require a 4-5 hour daily session of manual labor. That doesn't exactly sound like what I would like to be doing on vacation, unless it provided a good social environment with the group.

Cat sitting

I'm staying 10 minutes away at a friends house, keeping an eye on her two cats, Jesse and James. It's a vacation from my routine, since I am accompanied by these two cats and I have access to the wide world of cable. I can binge on pet friendship and the travel channel. It's fun to see them show places I've traveled like Key West, and new places to see like Nashville, TN.
