"essentially it just doubled my workload"

Seems to be the problem with American labor. They don't take enough time off. Doubled your workload? maybe the boss will suggest working smarter and you can get it done. Or suggest to the boss, you have X number of days of vacation and you are taking all of it and he should hire a replacement for the guy that quit.
Now if you are self employed, you may be screwed.
Vacation time should be savored like fine wine or cigars. Not gulped in haste or cut short.

Planning a late June-early July trip to the Chaco Culture National Historic Park, Nageezi, NM, then up to the Aztec Ruins National Monument, then Dinosaur National Monument, Dinosaur, CO on the way home. About 3000 mi/4800km.
All of the history, none of the Interstates.

Hoping to ride to Tuktoyaktuk, NWT, Canada in June. This will be my third trip to the Arctic, the first on the DL650.

I want to do the Trans Labrador Highway with Newfoundland and Nova Scotia. Hope I’ll find a big enough junk of time this summer for this.

Planning a cross country loop in June to pick up all the states I'm missing. Would like to spend some time riding the mountains and canyons of Colorado and Utah, visit my sister in Wash. state.

Some great riding/sites/scenery in Ohio, almost looks like you’ve purposely avoided the Buckeye state.

It's not always that easy. I just left jobs a few months ago and felt really bad for my coworker I left behind. I work in IT and it was a very specialized company. It took me about 2 years to learn the systems and products. I left for a cushy government job and the other IT guy I left behind will now have 2 years before he can realistically take much vacation. They are paying him a bonus and paying out his vacation time. The business simply couldn't function without a tech. He will be able to take the odd day off, but certainly not a week or two at a time.
