Perry Hall Patch Editor on Vacation April 21-26

Keep an eye out for breaking news while I'm out of town.

UPDATE (April 27)—I tell more about my trip and reveal the mystery photo here.


It's one thing to skip out of town for a long weekend, or spend a Sunday afternoon in downtown Baltimore. It's another thing to spend nearly a week cruising south of the border without Internet access—especially when you're a Patch editor.

As much as it honestly terrifies me (I'm expecting to experience serious withdrawal symptoms), your faithful Perry Hall Patch editor will be unavailable to answer emails, take calls, listen to voicemails or cover breaking news between April 21-26. The Facebook and Twitter feeds may also be a little snoozier.

Of course, we have some great content planned while I'm away, so be sure to continue checking the site every day! Fellow Patch editors will also be available to cover any major breaking news items in the Perry Hall, White Marsh and Kingsville area.

If news breaks, or there's an important issue with the site that requires immediate attention, please send a quick email to Senior Regional Editor Doug Donovan at doug@patch.com (thanks so much, Doug).

I can't wait to see you all again on April 27!

The photo attached to this post is from the official tourism website of one of the places I'm planning to visit. Can you guess where I'm going? Share your guess in the comments and I'll reveal the answer after I come home.

There must come a time when your laptop, cell phone, email and Internet are placed on hiatus,"the mental health break" I call it. Have a restful and relaxing vacation. Work will still be here when you return.

Btw, it looks like you are visiting the Mayans.

You're going to Mexico!! I was supposed to go to Mexico today too, but decided not to and instead be a workaholic. Please have fun for me! You totally deserve a fantastic vacation, with no internet access :) Drink a virgin margarita for me! ;)

Take all the time you need & have a great time! We will be anxiously awaiting your return. One suggestion - put down all of your normal tech gadgets except your camera ;-)

Chichen Itza?

Oh sad! I would have loved to see you down there :)
