    Got notice today that the project I am working on will be out of money by the end of the week then they are shutting down until the next fiscal year (Oct '05). Getting my first long summer break since I was a Freshman in high school (worked thru the summer every other year) almost 14 years ago I think...

    Anyone need cars, trucks, tractors or large parts hauled across country? :D gonna haul stuff to pay for my vacation. where should I go?

    Exactly. Last time I had a full summer off I was 12 yrs old. Even then, I spent some time working at the family business, just not as an "employee".

    11 years ago for me. Started working part time during school and full time during the summer doing construction when I was 15. Since then, I've had a couple 30 day vacations while I was active duty.... those were always fun.. But by the time you get back to work, you are a civilian again and it takes some time to get back into the swing of things.
