When Bloggers Vacation

What's the protocol for announcing a blogger's (Jengaistas) vacation? Does one:

1. Announce they are going to be gone for a few days, thereby insinuating that anyone would CARE that they are gone for a few days?

2. Not announce they are going to be gone, thereby leaving the blog in the same sort of half-shuttered disrepair shared by about 98.9% of blogs worldwide?

3. Not go on blogcation, and instead take the blog on the road, going to Internet Cafes and writing entries about luggage, airplane peanuts and "people are the same all over the world, but it's the little things...."?

4. Write lame, supposedly witty but actually trite and overly self-important indirect blogcation announcements like this?

Regardless, I'm heading out West for a few days (ala the narrator in All the King's Men). Nothing like the luxuriously desolate stretches of I-40 Westbound to free the soul, center the mind, and listen to lots of XM Radio. I'll wave if I see you on the side of the road....

Or don't say anything, fearful that you're inviting burglary. That's always been my approach. But then, I've a special talent for finding meaningless things to worry about.

ditto what John Fleck sez.

Yeah, but I, intrepid wife, plus big barkie dogs, remained ensconced in the little-house-in-the-valley.
Had there been an attempted burgle, Petunia the Goat would have reared up and thrashed the thief to death.
