AAA is projecting the biggest start to the summer vacation season in over a decade. Wiscsonsin AAA spokesman Nick Jarmuscz says Americans will kick off the season by traveling in near record numbers this Memorial Day holiday. Nearly 42 million Americans will travel during the weekend, up five percent over last year. Jarmuscz says higher gas prices will not be enough to keep travelers home during the holiday weekend. AAA expects an additional two million people will take to other modes of transportation including planes, trains and buses. The busiest travel days are expected to be Thursday and Friday, May 24 and 25.
