Family vacations don't necessarily suck. I re-bonded with my cousin Zack, who's 23 and just as much into D&D, MMOs, video games, etc. as we are. And he's a musical GENIUS. He does techno/trance stuff (mostly trance) and is utterly amazing at it. It's nice to know that I'm not the only dork in the family. We're going to a medieval thing later in July for a few days, and I'm pumped for that. At least I'm getting one road trip out of this summer.
On a side note: this might be one of those memes that's already been talked about, but do any of you play and of the Elder Scrolls games, specifically Oblivion?
