You have three blue-sky days...

    ... and you can go anywhere in the U.S., on someone else's dime, to do something fun and goofy and adventurous that you've always wanted to do.

    What do you do?

    Or what's in your neck of the woods that would be worth flying in for? A great fishing hole, a killer poker room, a fabulous place to jump off a cliff (hopefully into water), a really big ball of twine...

    And please be forewarned: I reserve the right to steal any idea posted on this thread for a future story.*

    *That's kind of the point, actually.

    What, a tour with the World's Most Dangerous Polka Band isn't in the works? ;)

    Three successive days?

    Three successive days, yes. Four even.

    But no polka.

    Do you have to spend all the days in the same place?

    Time of year is our choice? Sorry for the questions. Want to give you a good answer.

    What if it rains on the second and third day, can you stay longer?

    I'd probably go down to New Orleans for Mardi Gras. It'd be especially poignant with the city's attempts to recover from Katrina.

    He wants to know if you live near the World's Biggest Naked Go-Kart Race and Watermelon Eating Competition.

    I'd head back to Montana and hike Glacier, trying to avoid bears, of course.

    Any time of year. If rain interrupts, you can stay longer. If rain helps, you can wait for rain.

    I was thinking "blue-sky day," as in empty, open, anything-can-happen kind of day.

    There really are no limits, except that it should probably cost less than $3,000. But if it would cost more, post it anyway, just for the spark.

    And thanks in advance for giving this some thought, sincerely.

    Naked Go-Karting would be a possibility. I think I'd call it, Crank Shaft.

    Missed pally's question: No, not necessarily. It could be a road trip. It shouldn't be fly to LA, to NYC, to Chicago. But it could be driving a particular stretch of highway, say.
