    Go to Vegas for a long weekend. Just as good as a week any where else.
     
  2. IMO, I don't think it's professional fl take a vacation when you don't have guys doing the work while your gone. I take vacations in the winter when I'm able to. I'd be annoyed if I was your customer. Just my opinion.

    I agree, hence the long weekend plan I mention. Trust me, two days in Vegas is plenty of relaxation. Mental down time anyway. You may come back wore out. :cool2:

    VACATION IN THE MIDDLE OF THE GROWING SEASON! What? I would love to go to the beach in the summer. I always go when its cold.

    I don't think you should charge anymore then normal.

    :laugh: :laugh:

    Seriously, the whole world disappears when you get to Vegas.

    I can go to the beach or something and I spend 2 or 3 days before I can unwind, then I start worring about what I have to do when I get back.

    On a short Vegas trip the whole world can wait and after 3 nights and 2 days you are ready to leave. I need the mental down time as much as anything.

    I have only been once this year. Went 8 times last year ( work related) so I did actually earn some money.

    I am now thinking, what conferance or show can I go to out there.

    I just got an offer for tickets to the Canelo Lopez fight, free room and some other concert that weekend. Never been to a prize fight would be fun to see. Lot of other shows to see as well.

    You want to see some water features :cool2:

    You know, every business's situation is defferent. Whether it be a co. in bus. for 20yrs and 5 crews or dba. I know some guys who are dba's and go in the summer and some in the winter.
    I've been in bus. for 17+ yrs now and I used to take the wife and kids in the summer because of school breaks, but now, kids are gone and the wife and I can wait till late fall or winter. We used to take weekends and camp but im selling it now to be able to afford a better trip with the wife with only a few small things left to do before turkey day..

    Remember this, have fun, relax, and most of all try not to feel guilty for being gone.

    I sorta do the same. A family vacation at the end of July and one for my wife and I the second week of Oct. Work more before and after and all works out. The only comments I get from customers are enjoy yourself and relax! Life is too short not to enjoy your family.
