    Good to know - you wouldn't do it for more than a week at a time. I continue to think about it and believe it would be a great experience but I just do not know.

    I do need a job - I need to make money but I was thinking of just working part-time wherever I am woofing. I was thinking doing it for 3 months or so but maybe thats not such a good idea... not really sure!

      You could always look into Job Corps. They have foresty management, pretty primal I think.

        These have all been GREAT suggestions! I moved out to LA about 4 months ago. 3 of those months I moved out on my own away from family. As soon as i moved I got a part time job at Chipotle. For having primal-like food, the work-style was very un-primal. It was a rushed & stressful environment. Sure it was fast paced which could be fun. However, I felt I wasn't taught very well/enough & whenever I'd try to do something right, for example pour sour cream on a burrito. I'd get criticized for taking my time. In all honesty I felt I was on the verge of getting fired if I made one more mistake. On top of all that it still wasn't enough to pay the bills. (I apologize for the small rant.)

        However seeing all these possibilities really has me looking at a job that could be better fit for my lifestyle. Music is a constant passion in my life & I have my degree in Recording Arts. But being able to provide & keep myself here is what's most important for me. As long as I'm here opportunities will come to make my passion into a real career.

          Probably something like a park ranger, Boy Scouts troop leader, maybe firefighter. There's also logging. Tour guide for national forest/park. Maybe one of those people that leads people up mountains to climb.

          I'd just go for something outdoorsy. I think back to firefighter because it requires a lot of raw strength. You have to pass a physical fitness test to even be considered for the job, and of course it feels good to help people.

            Cook. If I had it to do all over, I'd ditch college and go to culinary school. Start at 22, work your ass off while using the best ingredients available. @35, open your own place and drive yourself batshit (it's very competitive). But I'd be cooking beautiful food and not poisoning anyone for profit.

            Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

              Also, don't knock the office job too much. If the work is interesting the time spent can be enjoyable and not too stressful. With some kinds of jobs you have considerable autonomy, don't have to punch a clock, get benefits that include gym memberships, can take your lunch when you want and sometimes even be paid for a full day's worth of work even though you put in only a few hours.

                I work in an office, however the hours are flexible...I make my own hours. I don't have to get up at a certain time, eat or break at a certain time. Go home when I wish. Work from home when I wish. Take as many or as little breaks or bathroom breaks as I want.

                Office jobs get knocked a lot because they get a rep for "be there at 8am, 10 minute break at 10, 1 hour lunch break at 12, 10 minute break at 3, off at 5" and you gotta somehow fit your natural body functions around that (eating, sleeping, going to the bathroom).

                The right job at the right place allows for work-life balance, no matter what it is you're doing.
