I would LOVE to leave my job right now and go work as a groomer operator, snowboard instructor, or any of the above...

But now I make far too much compared to what I'd get at the hill, and I've got the taste of economic freedom in my mouth and you can't wash that taste out. I still get out to the hill a lot, and can afford the equipment I want. But are there days I'd like to be 23 again, and able to say "FUCK IT ALL" and go work at a resort, live the cheap life, and board for a year or two? Fuck yeah...
