Dude Ranch Tourism

Written by Dani Martin

Dude Ranches have since become a fixture inrepparttar U.S., as American as apple pie and baseball. Many tourists are drawn to Dude Ranches forrepparttar 142995 same reasons they were atrepparttar 142996 beginning ofrepparttar 142997 20th century: a sense of adventure, a desire to experience another way of life, andrepparttar 142998 chance for a wholesome and healthy good time.

The Dude Ranch embodiesrepparttar 142999 ideas of self-reliance, living offrepparttar 143000 land, and wide open spaces. Forget aboutrepparttar 143001 TV andrepparttar 143002 Internet, and turn that cell phone off. Once onrepparttar 143003 ranch, these distractions will happily be put aside.

Dude Ranches first gained marked popularity inrepparttar 143004 1920s. As more and more tourists started arriving fromrepparttar 143005 east, and overseas, many cattle ranches opened themselves up to accommodaterepparttar 143006 visitors.

What Your Luggage Tells Others About You

Written by Flor Bonifacio

Airports are fascinating places. Inrepparttar midst of allrepparttar 142949 rush isrepparttar 142950 enforced waiting. Waiting that people make use of in all sorts of ways. One ofrepparttar 142951 things that I enjoy most doing is looking at people’s luggage and imagining what they do for a living, where they’ve been, where they’re going to and what they might be like if I knew them.

There are two fertile points where I do my luggage musings. The first one is on departure as I queue up to check in my luggage withrepparttar 142952 rest ofrepparttar 142953 throng. The other is upon arrival as I wait for my belongings inrepparttar 142954 luggage carousel.

There arerepparttar 142955 easy to decipher luggages. One of them isrepparttar 142956 standard airline sized black luggage with wheels and retractable handles that most corporate executives –everrepparttar 142957 efficient time managers - carry. Most of these time saver luggages do not end up in carousels nor are they checked in, as they now fall intorepparttar 142958 hand-carry luggage that can be wheeled (just) alongrepparttar 142959 jumbo jet’s tiny middle aisle, stored inrepparttar 142960 overhead lockers (again just), and whisked out ofrepparttar 142961 plane andrepparttar 142962 airport forrepparttar 142963 next boardroom meeting halfway aroundrepparttar 142964 globe,

Another easy to figure out luggage isrepparttar 142965 humongous backpack carried byrepparttar 142966 globe-trotting young person out to experiencerepparttar 142967 world on a tight budget. Their backpacks are normally double their size and weight and in them I would imagine would be blankets not usually provided in cheap backpacker hostels and pots and pans that might come in handy when they run out of money and need to camp out forrepparttar 142968 night.

A hard one for me isrepparttar 142969 hard case Samsonite luggage andrepparttar 142970 person that comes with it. They seem to fall into all sorts of categories. They could be rich widows who are going to Europe to while away their time and need a few Samsonite hard case luggages with combination locks to secure their diamonds and pearls.
