That can be one of the good perks I guess. The vagabond lifestyle trying to bid to get a month plus off, bc some personal trips canít be done in a week or two.

But it works for some and it doesnít for others. My point in life, a week on/week off is best. I hate having to sacrifice sometimes crappy bid months to get good bid months. It was hard on the family life, but I got 5 weeks off one time with vacation. Moral was low at work and this was much needed.

But two week vacation?!?! You must have it easy when you get home. Lol

I'd say it's a good bit better than the office folk supporting y'all. They get two weeks per year.

In my case, I go to work to relax and take it easy. Non stop busy at home, that's where the real work is.

Home is very relaxing for the most part, except for my wife having cancer at 47 yrs old. Kids are in college, house is paid off. I canít complain about too much.
