I was making $46K when I left living in the a place where everything was cheap. It was a good life. Don't limit yourself. I wish everyone the best.
Ever hear of Catalina Flying Boats?
I've been trying to break into that....but the pre-reqs are a bit hefty.
Also sounds like the perfect job for me right now....wake up at 4am, get to the airport (3 miles from the house), check WX, help load, depart at 6AM to AVX, land 15 minutes later, unload, depart for LGB, land, coffee, do it 3 more times, off at 3pm, gym, beer:30, fun time with the gf, sleep.
Maybe then I can have the routine to get my six-pack back...
