I have always wanted to work for the National Park Service, particularly Glacier National Park. Teaching geology or botany or forestry or leading day hikes, perhaps along the grandeur of the Garden Wall, and inspiring those younger than me with the marvel of the beauties of this great country. Getting vacationers to grow more deeply in their appreciation of our great National Park System. They have so much more to offer than just stopping at the Visitor Center to pick up a $7 refrigerator magnet on a 45-minute drive-through of the park. For this opportunity, money would not even need to be in the equation. \ken

I would like to be part time cabinet / furniture builder just a few days a week, in the summer time at our home base.

I did a couple of years as a bus driver for our county transit agency. I was what's known as an "extra-board" driver, substituting for the regular drivers when they needed time off. It worked well for the first 18 months or so, when the agency was a 5-days a week local operation with only one route requiring an early start.

Then they got ambitious and started 7 days a week and a couple of express inter-city services. The Everett service had its first run in the morning at 04:40, requiring an 04:20 report time. After twice getting a 21:45 finish on one route, then an 04:20 start the following day, I decided I was done with that job.

Still, it was an interesting job. I miss the interaction with the riders, but sure don't miss the early starts and the split shifts.

A river guide in the Grand canyon during the summer and a dive instructor in the Caribean in the winter. Yes there would be people issues to deal with but in my experience, these people are mostly enthusiastic and have a common interest.

Funny thing is I actually know a girl who holds both of these jobs.

How about a p/t job as a telemarketer, I think you can work from home (on the road)?

For the price of $15.03 you too can become an iRV2 Supporter which extends the amount of storage for posting photos including many other benefits too.

Campground hosting/presenting water safety, each summer in the cool mountains, on a lake. It does not get any better.
