Desk jockey/family types - how many days do you get?
Not casting aspersions, as I now fall head first into this category. For those who work 9 - 5 office type gigs, and have families, how much time do you get on the mountain? I'm looking at a couple more weekends in Mammoth to round out my season, which will put me at a measly 15 days. This year was particularly hampered, as my daughter was born in early January, so the run up to that, and requisite time after meant that I didn't get to board at all from mid December to mid February. We also spend a week in CO each year, which didn't happen this year, but will resume next year (sister in law lives in Eagle), so that shaved off another 4 days or so. That said, I feel like I'm looking at 20 - 25 days a year as a best case scenario for the foreseeable future. I try to maintain the attitude that I'm just out there to have fun, but truthfully I'm a really progress minded guy, and feel like I'm hardly maxing out the progress factor at that amount of days (I at least try to ride open to close on the days I ride). Anyway, I'm bored at the desk today, and just wondering how others get it done.
