Export and sales of overzised cargo.
If you have a motorcycle, vehicle, truck, bulldozer, excavator, crane or just about anything to big for FedEx-type companies that you want either moved from let's say NY to CA or shipped from USA to any country in the world I'll move/ship it for you.

..not usually a weekend-type gig. Typically those running cell-pcs (wireless carrier) work is usually low-paying (believe it or not), aside from those doing Maintenance and repair versus construction. We only do limited, specialized Cell work, and mostly 911, radio/tv, so it's better quality work and pay.

Look for a company in your area...St. Louis....look up Synergy...they are a larger contractor and may be looking to take on "greenies" to start. Fall protection training is your first stop. Actually, most operations will take the new guys out and have 'em climb to see who's "got it". Then, it's off to the races. It's a whole lot of fun coupled with a whole lotta crap. If you are fortunate to find a good group to work with it is fine. This isn't our only area of work (only about 20% of what we do), so it helps to keep it interesting and lets me sleep in my own bed most nights rather than being on the road...

Fireman...not only the greatest job on the face of the planet but the greatest schedule. 24 on, 48 off...but I also have another job on my off days. But I'll always have time to ride. What the hell else is there to do in Ohio. The armpit of America

I am a research analyst for a consultant that works mostly with non-profts, academic institutes and progressive organizations (labor Unions and grassroots orgs.) We are a full service shop but I have the healthcare research department - which is a great gig because its a growing industry that touches lots of different kinds of research. A good chunk of my work is economic - so prices and usage of different healthcare products and servces, competitive positioning of insurers and providers etc. But I also do a lot of statutory and legal research for legislative campaigns and litigation support.

I get to travel and work with different clients. Usually its not extended or far away travel though right now I am in a massive project in the San Francisco bay area from Jan to May. Thats a long time to be away from home. But its also many fun day trips to Tahoe!

I'm an underemployed customer service agent for JetBlue airways out of NYC.
Ability to fly anywhere domestic for free or super cheap (many international places too) but not the expendable funds to REALLY do so.

Damn you Sallie Mae, rent and other adult responsibilities. DAMN YOU!!!
