i've been thinking a lot lately that i'd like to become an american sherpa if possible. a lot of people come to NH for the summer, and i could probably make a little money as a mountain guide/backpack carrier...but that's completely seasonal.
i think there are a lot of jobs that could become primal...farmer, chef, counselor (outdoor rec, like outward bound). a lot of it will have to do with what you bring to the job. just try to stay out of an office. i hate my office.
