I know, I know. This owning and running one's own company requires too much of my time. I gotta retire, or at least rethink how I want to work in the future.

Been there, done that. Made the payroll. Put in my 25 years worth. I feel your pain.

I could offer you a place to park near nice beaches and warmmmm weather all for the minor ramrodding of me putting a cork floor in...:} No dumps but full power and nice woods across the street and hey tax free shopping. LOL I am sure you could travel around doing that floor system for a while :} probably even park for free or mostly free. lol

LOL! I was thinking of getting away from work, not driving to it.

But, something like that would be a fun thing to do while travelling.

How hard is it to point and yell ? I used to do it all the time in the military :} Nice chair under an awning and a beer or three lol though, I am not a drinker or would a few ice cubes and some 18 year old GlenFiddich be better for you.

Seems Larry Gamble has figured it out. Best of both worlds. He and Deb travel to all the major egg gatherings to sell product and do installs. He gets to meet many, many excited and happy people... plus have travel expenses to write off his taxes. Wished I would have thought of it!

That's it, I could travel North America selling my services, and get to use it all as a write off. I like.

We can chuckle, but Larry has turned his store and services into a serious business. Trust me, I've turned myself into a pretzle brainstorming how I could get something similar to work for me. But, I've discovered my only talent is in Not Organizing Gatherings and putting on craft beer exchanges. Not something folks are willing to pay for! Wish I was an upholsterer or knew something about trailer trailer electricity. Dang.
