Always take on every winter. Its important to get away for a week, but not when others are counting on you to be around.

I take a few every summer and just go for 2-3 days to get away along with a long one in the winter, maybe 2. It's just what you can afford.

Are you solo or non solo? Also how do you make up the work you missed?

No real winter in my state. It is understood by the people that I deal with that the week between Christmas and New Years is my time off.

Hey man this is kinda off topic but I noticed you live in hawaii, I was just thought it would be cool if you started a pic thread of some of your work and equipment. Sorry didn't mean to hijack the thread just curious.

I am usually in the application forum. Sorry not a mowing guy. But you can see some of my work and toys if you search my posts.

Solo. In the past years most have been on a 10 day rotation so if you schedule you can do it with no problem. I do have a some weekly accounts but I schedule around them. That's what makes the wife mad.

Taking a vacation

I bought my family a camper back in December of 2008. That was the best money I have ever spent. We absolutely love it. We camped 7 or 8 times last year. I decided that working all the time and spending NO time with my family wasnt the way to go. We are going to try to camp at least 10 times this year. There nothing like watching my 6 y/o ride his bicycle non-stop around the campground while my wife is cooking dinner in her daisy dukes and bikini top and I'm sitting under the awning with the fire going drinking a cold one. Yep you guys can make all that money. I'm going camping.
