    Have you ever thought of becoming a pilot? There is a severe shortage right now.

    I think that a guy could make decent money doing a boat charter. I know a member that went the Anchor route and seems to do very well.

    Talk to JMS and he can give you some insight in the kinds of groups he sees.

    I've always wondered if a bus route could be successful.

    Are you an Uber driver? Can be a nice source of income and you can turn it off if busy with something else.

    Just curious, what would it cost to get from KCI, St louis, or Springfield MO to Louri (Franky & Louie's) ?? I have rode with Carl at the lake, always a good experience and priced fairly

    Last trip I picked up at stl airport were related to good friends I done for $300. I checked their flight arrived in chicago on time and flight to stl was scheduled on time departure so I spent few minutes and left home. My home to airport is about 3 hours with short pit stop, where I checked their flight and it had been delayed 1 hour, too 45 minutes from flight landing till leaving airport with a food to go stop I made it back home after just under 9 hours time, $7 bridge toll, $10 parking, 360 miles $50 in fuel cost,
