I've been solo with a summer helper for the last 8 years and this is my first with a crew. I have vacationed in the last but would leave on a Thursday after work and come home on Sunday. I was also a single guy.
I've been married for about 1.5 years and took my first official vacation leaving on a Tuesday morning and coming home Sunday. It was nerve racking but I enjoyed it. I checked in every day with my crew leader and we even talked a couple of extra times when he ran into problems.
Now I have a kid on the way and hope I can grow and continue to take some time off I then summer for vacations.
Having a family really changes your business philosophy.
