Some people are really looking forward for this time of the year to take a break from work and spend time with the whole family.

According to a recent Orbitz survey, 77% of Americans are taking a vacation this season, with nearly half traveling with the entire family and 33% traveling with a significant other.

    — This just happened yesterday morning around 4:30 am on April 10th 2012 while staying at the Split Rock Resort and Golf Club in Lake Harmony, PA. My husband woke me and said he got bitten by a bug & showed me the tissue. His eyes started swelling up. Took some pics & video of the tissue with the bug to the front desk and all they did was sent security to ask questions and said it’s the first time they have had an issue with bed bugs & implied that somehow it was just brought to them from guests.
