Wish I could take a vacation. Never taken more than a long weekend in my 58 years. And even then had to put out some fires from the river campground over a 300baud acoustic mod.
I guess that's the price you pay for runnin your own show. No regrets though - i dig what i do and am paid well.
the bottom line,
Real controls guys don't (can't) take vacations
With all the connectivity options available today, its hard not to be online with a project. My favorite is the using in-flight wifi. Not the fastest but something about working from 40,000 ft is really cool plus my phone is off. Long way from the 300 baud modem days! Since my company has projects going all over the country I tend to work in long weekend vacations, which from the looks of things I am not alone. My only real escape is riding my 450 KTM in the woods of VT with friends.
LOL I like your setup Orion242 but where in the world is your IQView. I mean come on, you gotta have some kind of fancy expensive outdated piece of equipment on there the customer should never use but tries to anyhow. LOL

i hear that. my escapes also involve a 450 KTM - but mine has no front brake and only turns left!
seems like there are a lot of ac mechs who ride the 2 wheeled off road death machines! might make an interesting thread?
