We talk all the time about what it's going to be like when we get back in 2010 after being out for two years. We've actually talked about just staying out since we don't want to deal with "The Return". The few times we've stayed at hotels we've had the same issues. After a several day passage, you wake up with a start, see your wife next to you and bolt up - "If she's sleeping here, whose on watch??!!" The lack of noise and movement gets you worried. We know we're going to have a tough time adjusting to food and water availability, the size of our house, etc.
