Personally, 1. A semi-clean house 2. A cleaned dog (no stinky pooch) 3. about 90 minutes please just to get everything unloaded and put away and set the tent out to dry and air out 4. dinner reservations at some place with comfort food and wine 5. a beautiful happy GF/Wife to listen to my stories all of dinner and then after the check comes I'll say "what did you do while I was gone?" and then listen to her for a while 6. Couch time and a movie 7. One day off work back in my house w/ nothing on the agenda the day after so I can sleep in, take a long bath, answer emails and just chill out with the house to myself and the clean dog and we'll watch Star Wars or something and I'll start drinking early Then back at work 2nd day home and all is good again.
