    Togh decesion. I have had the same tugging at my haert strings to. Being a business owner is sometimes not easy. We work alot harder then the average guy that works for a weekly paycheck. There are times though when we need to get away and just unwind. I'm sure what every desion you make, it will be the right one.
    Good luck. P.S. The snow will still be there when you get back from the game. Maybe you can have a crew member get started on the work while you are at the game. I'm not sure how snow operations work. We do not get much snow in Wa every year.

    This is a no-brainer and I'm in Texas, DUH?

    Get that satellite hooked up, set the VCR, turn off the radio (so you can't hear the game) and go make money!

    Neither the Chiefs or the Raiders will know or care that you wern't there!

    You mentioned working 35 weeks, there's 52 in a year, meaning there will be other oppotunities for R&R.
    It's a personal choice, just how much work time would be lost going to the game?
    BUT
    If your snow customers are depending on you for the same time that would be taken by your trip, that should answer the question.

    Take a different vacation with some early season snow revenue!! We take our relaxation seriously at Impact(when we get it), but we take the interests of our clients even more seriously.Whatever you decide to do will be your best decision at heart.:D

    simple math............the time with one brother can NOT be replaced by all the customers and all the money in the world. the customers will come and go. the money will come and go. if the brother were to die (sorry) say, the next day............

    family time CAN NOT be replaced
