Re: Gone skiing!
I tend to take half a year off from my drums every year however I do play in my church's band so I always at least maintain my skills.
I don't think taking a week off is a bad thing. Take along a CD/Ipod/Mp3 player and a practice pad and you'll be fine. I actually encourage younger drummers to take a week off at least once a year.
I drum for Him.
