This Week: Odd Jobs on the Road
In case you've forgotten, I have a job. And I've spent too long trying to get this whole journalism thing down to switch careers mid-stream. But, you know, sometimes I wonder. I mean, all the places I go, all the people I run into...all the weird and interesting ways to make money. Well, a few weeks ago I asked you to call in and tell me about some of them. I wanted to know what odd jobs people have picked up on the road...while traveling. And man, I think I've been underestimating this world.
Next Week: World's Worst Drivers
Now, we're shifting gears just a bit, because this week I want to hear your stories about driving. And since we're entering the "award season", the Grammies were just last week and the Oscars are coming up, I want to give out an award of my own. I'm looking for the world's worst drivers. How'd you navigate the Champs Elysee with all those Frenchman careening around the Arc de Triumphe? One guy I know swears Kenya should win the prize, the way they shoot through those mountain passes is enough to make even an L.A. driver lose his grip.
Send us an email or call 888-SAV-TRAV (888-728-8728) and tell us where to find the world's worst drivers.
