That's really helpful. As PDQ says, trying to stick to a schedule exposes you to more problems. I've read a lot of chatter lately about people who have put themselves in a bad position by letting the schedule make decisions for them.
My job lets me accrue over two and a half months of vacation, and I'm pretty certain that I could actually use it if I provided enough notice and planning.
I'd like to visit Maine someday, and I was asking about the De Bay for planning purposes.
