    I'm certainly not looking to travel this much anymore, but there's got to be a few young guys here with no wife and kids that would see this as their dream job!

    I guarantee you there are more than a few older guys with a wife and kids who would see this as a dream job.

    Gee, I'm sorry, honey, I'd love to install a new toilet and do all that landscaping, but I've got to catch a plane to Bermuda to play golf at that new resort they want me to review. I wish I could, but what can I do? Of course I'm not having fun -- I'm working.

    Does anybody know what kind of pay usually is involved with this kind of job? I would do it for free if they are paying for me to travel the country and play golf.
