    Spring Break is what kids/students do.

    When they get older and graduate Spring Break is left behind.

    yeah i worked today in the sprinkling rain all day so i could get everything done. i have a yard i may do friday if it's dry enough. if not i'll wait and do it monday.

    this weather is driving me crazy. 65 one day and then 47 the next and then back up to 70. it's back and forth back and forth.

    i hate to say it but i'm looking forward to 100 degree days. :laugh:

    I'd settle for highs in the 70's to mid 80's myself. :cool2:

    I haven't done any spring breaking since 1999. I can say that I did enough then to last a lifetime.

    I try to take 3 day weekends and go camping/backpacking as often as possible. Especially during the winter. I do a lot of winter camping when the forecast looks clear and have yet to miss a storm or anything. But I have done some very tired plowing :cry:

    I have some traveling to do that might involve week or so long trips here or there, but finding the time is tough when you put yourself under contractual obligations. Those hiking/camping weekends though really keep me sane, I'm only 22 though, can't say what I'll be doing even in a more few years.:dizzy:

    When you're twice as old as you are now you'll look back on these years as not being your most productive. And no, that's not a typo. You won't hit your good strides and endurance until you hit your 40's. When you hit your 50's you'll look at 20 something kids and say that they have a long way to go and a lot to learn. :laugh: In your 50's you'll still be able to work circles around 20-somethings.
