I think doing a season (or just living in general) somewhere out west would be an amazing experience, but at the same time I feel like I'm starting to get a little old to just drop everything and do it. I imagine most of you will say to go for it, but it's really hard to pull the trigger.

Anyone here make the move at a similar time in their life? How great of an experience would it be? Worth giving up a great job to do it?

Thanks for any serious thoughts, opinions, or advice on this.
Ok chump, here's the deal on what you want to know. If you dont make this move now, you'll spend the rest of your life wondering if you should have done it and stuff about missed opportunities and whatever. Yes, being a snow carnie pays shit and it won't be a bed of roses, but the people you meet and the times that you have will more than make up for wages. 28 is still young, and you've plenty of years until you need to worry about owning a toyota camry, picket fenced house an all the shit that goes along with it, plus, who cares about a great job really? Great jobs are easy to find. Your not on this planet to have a great job, but a great life.

My question in reply to your post is: why aren't you packing already?
