I may halt my travels an check this out. It seems like i could get back into my military bootcamp mentality if i stayed in the camps. I wouldnt have anything else to do other then work out, work on my spanish, read some books, play some xbox. An in the process i can make some money an pay some more of my houses off...... I dont have any trade skills you listed an honeslty not interested in learning any. But if i can make a $1000 or more a week washing dishes or changing trash cans im down, give me a ipod an im happy no matter what im doing. All this while working out everyday and working on my pimsluer an rosetta stone spanish an what not.

Cause i have been bouncing around asia for going on 4 months now an managed to work out maybe 5 or 6 times. Did maybe 3 rosetta stone exercises. I have however had a blast an met lots of nice women Smile But in the big picture of things i havent done much to improve upon myself....

All camp staff (kitchen, security, janitorial, etc) live in camp and generally work 21 days on, 7 off. Since its not skilled work, it will be hard to get this type of job if you aren't Canadian, are you?

Don’t sweat the petty things, pet the sweaty things.
