I struggle with this throughout the year. Knowing that when fall comes I will be wanting to spend multiple long weekends in the field away from them. So the rest of the year, I find myself avoiding other things that I could be out doing. In my mind this saves up my time so I can spend that time in the field. Probably not the right way to think, but is how my mind works. I know my wife supports me in my adventures, at the same time, hates it when I leave.
How do you find that balance between the two?
