I hear ya. My wife is always campaigning to go on "vacation". Which, pretty much means, I have to take a break from my permanent vacation.

I have to take a vacation to get much trapping in.
work all the time and when on-call I can't go more than 5 minutes from home.

trapping and hunting is my vacation from work.

When fur prices where better I would try to plan a day or 2 a week for vacationE At the time quiting time for the day at woek was 2:30 So I had a few hours of day light at the end ff the day to do trapline management. I could set a few at a spot in the afternoon and plull orhers the next day when I was off and the finish pulling those form the day before . And than adding in more stes ftom the day before and set up new areas I was always checking some new sets and pulling siome that had been out for a whileAnd I gererally saved the hard to reach spots for the very end of the season That way if the weather got real bad I would just skip them for that year

Trapping is a way of life.
I dont want to take a vacation from life.Maybe the younger people today take a couple weeks off to go rioting.

My wife and I get away for a weekend every couple months. When we go in November, we stay somewhere where i can trap. Check traps in the morning, spend the rest of the day in town.

I run traps in evenings or very early mornings, always before or after work. Weekends are a treat with daylight. For me personally this is a great refresh for me. I'll trade sleep for trapping any day.

Vacations I take time from work and spend that with family.

Money cannot buy you happiness, but it can buy you a trapping license and that's pretty close.

Haven't taken a vacation in twenty years. People come to where I live to kick back and relax. I enjoy where I live and play. Only work when I want to and trap. Not rich or poor but happy and content. Me and wife enjoy our time with the kids grandkids and great grandkids.

A little off topic but an old timer I bought a bunch of gear off of when he gave it up said back in the day he would take two weeks off in the fall from his work as a carpenter to get his trapping in and would make 3 times what he would normally make from his regular employment during that "vacation".

Everyday for me is a vacation.
I fish when I feel times are best for fishing, not when I can get away for a couple of hours.

It took a long time and a lot of hard work but I'm here, not rich money wise and not poor work the farm and wonder with the wife if we will have chicken beef or pork for supper (we raised it all). Vegetables we grow um can um and eat um. Havn't been to a grocery store in three weeks. Going tomorrow for coffee and sorts. Praise GOD!
