    Taking off long amounts of time is something g we do a horrible job of here in the States. In 25 years I've never taken more than 2.5 weeks off and I think I've done that three times, twice for Africa and then the whole honeymoon thing.

    It's something we could learn from other parts of the world!

    Legal here in Iceland is six weeks but as self employed. ..whatever ...every day email's get checked etc ...

    But the blonde gets 6 weeks plus public holidays etc etc ......

    The French never seem to be not on holiday and they have an amazing GDP

    To be honest if I could be the hours I truly work are sane and sensible ...

    Don't tell the Blonde

    Like Royal, I never took more than 3 weeks and that was only four times. Enjoy your month hunting and spending time with "The Blonde".

    You sir are indeed a lucky man! Enjoy your trip. I wish I were in your shoes now! Work will be there when you go back I'm sure.
    To date Two weeks has been my max....but when I retire.....I'm going for three months. And some of you might know which outfitter I will pick! And I might even take one of my worthless and cheap Rugers on the trip. Heck I might even let something get in my cross hairs and send a crappy Hornady bullet down range to drop some poor animal in its tracks. Most of all I'm going to relax without a care in the world.
