I'm Always In Trouble


« : March 20, 2013, 10:08:50 PM »

Something I have noticed is that few on here take long vacations. Or am I completely wrong ?

I believe Gene took one recently to NYC or was it Dennis ? Just wondering if anyone else does. I am feeling very guilty taking the month of July off. My mother in law is coming from Australia to stay with us for 2 months and we are loading up the Bus and taking off on a 3,000 mile journey. I love having my MIL here as she treats me like a King.

I will be gone for three weeks in May to attend rally's and a national convention. It was pretty exhausting last year and I only did a week. This year I am doing back to back rally's with four seminars to perform plus a booth and probably 30 - 50 inspections in between. It will be a three week trip for me. Thankfully my cousin is flying in to work the booth for me again. She rocked it last year for me dazzling everyone with her Southern charm and sold out all of my 303 products, carpet runners and other things I make for coaches.

I am going to need this July vacation. Is anyone else planning some off time this summer ?

I took a long Labor Day weekend in NYC. I do a few long weekends somewhere every year.
I've done a few 7 day Carnival cruises (but something tells me that I should lay off those for a while ;)).

7 days is about all the vacation I can stand. I'm always ready to get back to work.

Me and the Missus took 10 weeks last year to go to NW Australia, we try to get away for 2 months over winter as it gets real bleak. Will be staying home this year as we are saving for a new caravan, but will be heading out into the desert for a few months next year. Load the bus up guilt free Chris, work will always be there when you get back.

Mike: We are heading to Arkansas for a few days to attend a family reunion and I can do some geneology research. Then off to Michigan to see the grandkids and my son. Then over to Richmond, VA to see the daughter, then to Williamsburg for some touring of the area, then to VA beach for some R & R, then to Kitty Hawk/Cape Hatteras for more R & R and to visit with close friends then back home to FL.

Scotty: camping in the desert ??? With King Browns and Adders ??? Good gawd cobber. That sounds scary. :)

Dennis: They allowed a Texan in NYC ? My advice is to avoid carnival. Your 7 day cruise may turn into a two week nightmare. :)

No one on their death bed ever says they wished they had spent more time sitting at the sewing machine.


I recently told a customer, jokingly, that I was going to spend next winter in Florida. She started screaming at me that I can't do that. LOL


I've got 719,221 more sofas to reupholster and then I will be able to retire.

My wife and I would love a nice long vacation, three week minimum, we both need it.  For the last two years we have been working on building our bus and I have been taking working vacations to speed up the process.  Because of the push to finish this project I let other things go around the house that I needed to tend to, so I did'nt get much accomplished on the bus this winter.  My father left for his yearly RV trip to the Carolinas, maybe next year my bus will be ready enough so we can go with him.

After doing this for 40 years and still have many more to go I now take holidays in the summer and at Christmas. I always worked while the staff got their holidays sick days family days and all the other days they took off but not anymore. Three weeks in July and 10 days at Christmas is the minimum now.

Mike: We are heading to Arkansas for a few days to attend a family reunion


Chris, going to where in Arkansas?  The Ozarks are beautiful there, might still be winter there now, however.  Our spring is late getting into that area and the midwest.  I don't mean I wouldn't go there, it won't be like real bad winter stuff.  Just sweater weather.

My family is all in Joneboro/Paragould area. My Grandmother was born and raised in a little tiny village called Marmaduke. My Grandfather was born and raised across the Border in Seneth, MO. I doubt we will have time to head towards the western part. I have been through there though and your right, the Ozarks are gorgeous.
