Every time I leave home and visit a different town, I wonder whether I could make it in that new town. Where would I live? Where I would work? If it is a pretty rural place, jobs would probably be scarce. I might not be able to find a cushy cubicle job with an all day internet connection. I have no skills. I would have to scramble for my living. I'd have to take whatever I could get out in the country.
Maybe I’d become a truck driver. I’d buy up every book on CD I could and listen to them during long hauls. I'd listen to foreign language lessons on CD. I’d get an audio recorder and babble into that thing all day. Do truckers still have CB’s? Talking on a CB would be like going in a chatroom.
Maybe I would start a business. I tell you - one service that is needed in some of the counties around where I live - these people need somebody to haul the junk off their land. I mean: You’re driving through the country, and it’s all scenic and serene, and suddenly there’s a yard with all kinds of crap strewn all over: washing machines, old cars, rusty old tractors, trailers missing wheels... Maybe I’d get a roll-back wrecker and just haul junk to the junk yard. Or I’d sell vintage auto parts on the internet. Ching!
I don't know...what else do they do out in the country? Logging? I don’t know if I could do logging. I would saw my own leg off or hit somebody with a falling tree or get mauled by a bear or beaten up by other loggers or something. And I don’t like the idea of cutting down trees, I guess that sounds...whatever...
It seems that if you buy the right machine, you can really make a lot of loot. Just buy a machine and start a business. Pressure washing or something like that. Tiller? ...for some tilling? Whatever.
What would you do if you uprooted and then planted somewhere new?
