    Just put in my Vacation time, out of the first 16 days of November I have 13 of them off. And yes I'm well aware of the fact that all you retired guys don’t have to worry about it !!

    Good Lord willing this is my last year I have to worry about vacation time. I have the first week of November scheduled for Michigan and the second for Iowa:)

    I might have a doctors appointment during that period......or might need one. Nothing is guaranteed when you're old and retired. :D

    I put my vacation request in back in March

    Did a bunch of Thursday Fridays this year. Last year I did Friday-Monday and Friday on public land was always my best day and Monday sucked .

    Oct 22-23
    Oct 29-30
    Nov 5-6
    Nov 12-13
    Nov 16-17


    If our December vacation gets canceled that gives me 8 more days to sprink around early Nov.

    I'm getting antsy for it to get here. Retirement so far has included a lot of work for me but my vacation starts from opening day to January 1st. Bring it on!

    this is a tough year to pick. last year took the first 2 weeks of Nov plus the 3 weekends. this year want to do 2 weeks around halloween week. but then that means driving back up a week later for gun, which we may stay for a week. i think i would just prefer 4 straight weeks. and work from camp a few afternoons. i wonder how that conversation will fly. "see you in a month or so"

    I took Oct 30 through Nov 25 and Dec 10 thru 22 off this year...plenty of time to hopefully get a deer and spend time with the family!

    I got the first 18 days plus the 27th. And any day after work. 8 wk stay at home helped conserve them. Have a few more to play with. Going to be retired before too long.
