How about lenghty travel time and possibly walking long distance cross country style?

Yeah, the job market in the US is pretty thin right now. I'm lucky to have a job, but I'm not real happy with it (haven't been for the past 6 months), and I've been persuing the help wanted ads as well as the online sites (monster.com yahoo jobs, helpwanted.com, etc...) to find not much of anything but part time and telemarketing. A few automotive tech positions, but I'd prefer keeping my wrench turning to a part time hobby.
Most of the good jobs in the fields I'm looking to get into are on the coasts.

Ive been offered two other jobs and after following though on both of them they were no longer available. I am SICK of not having a job, its going on three months now!

I am a workaholic! I work hard and I work right. Not having a job this long is frustrating the H*** out of me. But Im not willing to settle for just any job. I need something different and something I can enjoy. Im GREAT with my hands and I love building and fixing electronics and stuff like that. I can be taught anything at all in virtually no time. Please if any of you know any jobs like resemble what Im talking about let me know so I can see if ones available in my area!

[/desperate plea]
What else would you like to do in addition or relation to what you said? And where is Mastic?

Mastic is in Suffolk County NY, on long island. I would just love to be in a trade job. Something orignal and that not everyone can do. Obviously thats not always realistic but I dont want to be miserable my whole life ya know?

I would love to do some real estate investing but in NY thats a difficult acomplishment. I tend to be a very creative person and I have a lot of common sense to find simple ways out of complex situations.

I recently have gotten into computers. I dont know as much as alot of people but Ive built one and basically rebuilt another. I could see myself doing something with computer hardware but I have no clue of the opportunities involed with it.

Looking up this information has proved difficult at best as most sites just want to sell you something. (God Bless America I guess).

EDIT: Ever watch American Chopper or something? If I knew anything about bikes a job like that would be perfect.

Well I can definately relate to this one. I left my job of 9 years due to too much gettin it in the a**. I was tired of being told to keep up and do the impossible (unload 1000-1200 cartons off of a semi trailer in your 8 hour shift!). My back is so messed up that I need a job doing something easier. I decided to take the package they offered and go to school and get A+ and Net+ certified in PC repair. I have been building computers for 4 years now. However needless to say I haven't been keeping up with the schoolwork and my Bonne has me Preoccupied! LOL. Anyhoo my wife is loosing her job as of next week Mon. and I will be getting my last check in the end of Sept. So I guess I need to find a job soon and there is not much out there here. :( Good luck to you on the search for what I am also looking for......
A job that I can say I love to be at and I love what I am doing! I had a taste of that for a year then the company decided to squash that for me! I was a maintenence mechanic and also helped in a 4 month project tearing down a huge structure in the building.

Sometimes that is not always the best thing. When you have a job like that and lose it,it makes it damn hard to find another.

That'* the boat I'm in
