Let’s face it! The current cost of gas is prohibitive to long-distance car travel, and the higher costs are also reflected in bus, train, and airline prices. When we get the urge to get away from it all, especially those small business owners who spend a large percentage of their hours ‘at the office’, it makes sense to explore what is right under our noses.
