This weekend I snuck out of Shreveport-Bossier to get away from my day-to-day life.

Life, since the Covid pandemic took over, has been odd, to say the least. I find myself with more anxiety and my workload feels like it has doubled. I look forward to vacation more than ever before. I only take one big vacation a year, and that leaves me with not much to look forward to. Why not put some effort into planning a getaway vacation?

Why Are Weekend Getaway Trips Better Than Vacation?

Not only are these weekend trips relatively simple to plan your anxiety isn't hyper-focused on how expensive everything is. Instead of taking paid time off from work and paying for 7 days to stay somewhere, you're opting for a weekend getaway that costs less than half of what a week-long vacation would cost.

Several Months Ago I Sent a Mass Text Out to See Who Wanted to Go to Broken Bow.

Everyone that was down for a getaway rounded up their kids and spouses and loaded up their crew for a 2 1/2 hour drive to Broken Bow, Oklahoma. It took little to no planning on our end. We all picked a cabin, paid each other for the stay and groceries and it was so easy it almost felt like we were missing something.

Pick Somewhere Where It's Far Enough to Feel Like You Got Away

The drive was not bad at all. In fact, it was good to get away and use the windshield time to clear the mind. I listened to a podcast, chit-chatted with a few friends, and by the time I got to Hochatwon, I was already refreshed.

The Best Part About Sneaking Away to a Place Like Broken Bow Is Bad Cell Phone Reception.

My Snapchat wasn't loading, I was getting text notifications much later than normal and the point of my phone was kind of useless. So I used it to take videos and play music. That was very liberating.
