    I use, use, use so I try an keep mine around 20 for emergencies. I pretty much plan a week in Canada fishing and a week four wheeling every year, a long with the random weddings and other odds and ends, I keep mine pretty much spent compared to a lot of folks. I never see mine getting that high, even in the last few years when the end is near.

    I'm still under the cap...but I'm getting close. Saving up for a vacay to the land down under in 2012 and then maybe a couple shorter trips around the US.

    I don't have any use or lose. That's only because of the price to travel back home to Hawaii I make sure I get my moneys worth. I'll get close with this deployment though only to use most of it for a nice vacay.

    Last month, I had 90 days total, which left 30 days of use/lose on the books. Highest I ever had. Took a couple of weeks just recently, and will be taking another couple next month.

    Can you no longer carry over 75 days? In 2008 they changed it from 60 to 75. Did they change it back?
