For sure. It works really well for people with seasonal jobs like teachers too. They can get a job at the store for the summer while school is out. You make lots of friends to go do fun with stuff working at those types of places too. There were several teachers that worked part-time at MQS while I was there.

I'm a retail buyer and several of our staff are killing it on 3point5. They learn our product line and they get rewarded for it. They score better there than most prodeals offered. It's win-win.

Just a thought...

One might be happier not making paddling their work....

Go to school and get a job that allows for a flexible schedule, reasonable wage, and travel opportunities. The growing trend in the paddling community I've seen is: medical and nursing in particular. 2-4 years of education isn't too long to wait for a good paying and flexible career.

I'm in the medical field myself, and it really works well for a whitewater lifestyle.
