    Does that make sense?

    We have gone (or we've gone) says that you did it in the past and are continuing to do it.

    Americans go on vacation.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
