Hate to burst the firefighter bubble, but your odds are about 1 in 1000 of getting a FF job if you are not a paramedic. There are no qualifications that you cant pick up in 2 months to test for a FF job, and the competition is pretty tough.
Now that being said, I am currently working as a medic (not for a fire dept right now) and work 92 days a year. I have sick time on top of that. I am out every day off and pull down about 50k a year, but I have only been with this company for a year. You can go to medic school in 2 years and be done. Then you just have to figure out how to afford to have 250 days off a year. ha ha.

Down in the barn uh shovel'n shit, purty good job, but think i'll quit.

I am a DBA (Database Admin). The pay is good and I am with a good company now with decent vacation and benefits. I can raise a family on the pay and still have enough money for a few toys.

Work with a few select people and the rest of the time you interact with software and servers. Work is not to bad except when you have an upgrade or something is offline; then the proverbial gun is at your head and it can be enormously stressful.

On call rotation is 2 weeks on and 4 weeks off.

Technology work can suck big if you get into a company with a cut throat culture

It's kinda like this sometimes:

Anyone know a good veteranarian? I bet if there were only a kayaking vet, he'd cut me a deal on care and I'd have his home phone so I could call and ask him questions about my dog's liquid brown with a touch of greenish shit. That'd be a great job?

I could also use my windows washed...

i kill mosquitoes- for real. I work 4 days a week april-early october, boat on the weekends, and after work. Then I am lucky enough to travel during the off season and go climbing around the world, ski/ride where i see fit, and really just live life until skeeter season comes back around. Not a bad way to go...

Partner in a firm that does data forensics. We gather insurance payment data from hospitals and doctors and after much discovery, find where the health insurance companies didn't pay what they were contractually obligated to pay. We get a nice big cut of the pie. A real nice big cut at that.

Our vacation policy is: see ya when you get back, whenever that is.
And the Lord said, let there be whitewater. So on Friday, the 13th day of the month....

I'm a Journeyman Lineman. Basically I build,fix and maintain powerlines. The works not bad. Make good money. Get 2 weeks vac. 2 weeks sick time and 1 week PLV (personal leave). Lineman get some of the best medical insurance in the country. The down side is, its dangerous as all get out. You only get one mistake and it doesn't have to be you that made it. Pretty cool though, I hold death in my hands on a daily basis. Although life insurance is kinda high,.... if you can get it.

I'm a struggling bilingual construction author. Engineering, CM, anything I can get these days. Working at concerts and events is good easy weekend pay when things are tough. freedom is epic but hand to mouth and constant struggle is a minus. You do so much work and promoting for free. When I gave up on the residential construction market I traveled well in India for 5 months on 4k. I have a friend who was an officer in the US air force and after 5 years quit and saved up enough money to travel for 4 years! he's a cheap ass though! now out of the military for 5 years the gov is paying for him to go to school in Australia with housing alloance and he never even has to return to the service....some new GI bill thing...looking at this post for myself as well...A bilingual licensed professional engineer and published author who can't find a job in the rockies near skiing and paddling...
