Each year I go up to my condo on the lake in ND with my family for at least 2 weeks.

Thank you to the military responders... We appreciate you! Only been gone two consecutive weeks+ twice: lived in Paris FR for a semester, and I had to work in Bath, UK for a week then flew to Germany for vacation for the next week. Otherwise, I'm usually home for a day at least between travels.

A large majority of you fail to take into the account of the kids that responded to this question. If a person stills lives with their parents I can perfectly understand them not being gone for 2 weeks

I would prefer to usually only be gone a maximum of 2 weeks, but really, just because you've never left home for more than 2 weeks, it doesn't mean that you don't go on regular vacations…

I have been spending 6 weeks away from home with no family since I was eight.... Scary at first but I have learned to be so much more independent.

Alaskan, I'm in oil & gas too and would love your opinion. Being hands-on in AK and seeing the impact - what do you think of ANWR?

I think everyone needs to be away from their homes for more than 2 weeks. It can really give you a different perspective depending on where you go. Unfortunately most employers would laugh at a vacation longer than 2 weeks or even 1....


11/05/11 12:25 am

This is amazing!!! I have been across the US to the Atlantic ocean twice (driving) and Hawaii once (plane). All were over two weeks. I also go camping (real camping) every other year for 14 days.
