Summer Vacation

I won't be on very much since Summer Vacation is here.
Busy with camping and other stuff.
Hopefully I will get some chances here and there to post.

I'm gonna be gone the entire month in Utah! BOO-YAH! :lol: 8)

(P.S.: For visualization of why I'm excited, I live in the North East. GO YANKEES! :wink: )

Sounds nice. I hope you have a great Summer, and have fun camping and such (Camping is also a fave of mine).

Now remember -and this is very important- do not forget to bring along plenty of sun block wherever the Summer brings you..

..Unless you want to turn into a walking, talking lobster like I did today. :wink:

Have fun!

Especially if in an aluminium canoe. My friend forgot sun block and he was burned so bad he was ill for weeks...

Have a nice time camping. I spent a great deal of my time as a youth doing long distance hikes, biking and boating. Good times!

GO RED SOX!

I am not going to be on that much either. But I will be at Brickworld, so whoever is coming will see me and my creations!

We always join the rest of my dad's family for camping.... I think it's sometime in July this year. A few of my older aunts and their husbands (those whose children have left home) go for a week, but me and my parents and sister usually only go for the last three days. Still, it's really fun. There are often around thirty to forty people.

I've already had my summer holiday. We usually go early, before the expensive summer season. We had three awesomely adventurous yet relaxing weeks in sunny Hawaii.

Don't go to Tinker Toys in Ala Moana Shopping Center (downtown Honolulu), they charge 12 dollars for impulse sets. So imagine the prices of bigger sets. :P

$12 for an impulse set? That's about a $300 increase from the normal retail price. Ouch, that must be painful on the wallet. :?

By the way Lewa, I hope you have a great time at your camping trip.

Do you mean a 300% increase because I am pretty sure that they were not originaly -$288.

Actually, you're both wrong.

A $300 markup would put the current price of an impulse set about $304.

A markup to $300 from a $288 set, would only be $12, or about a 4% markup.

:P

Nah, castlebuilder100 is right. If the markup is $300 and the resulting price is $12, then the original price would have to be $-288.

(-288) + 300 = 12. ;)

However, I think that as a joke from a typo this all may have run its course.
