Re: Cruising and career
"Depends where you want to work and how much you want to make. In Chicago or New York you're expected to be career focused. If you're not career focused, then get out. Go to Hawaii, Boulder Colorado, Key West, or other places and you'll see a far different reaction."
The problem is there are few well paying jobs in Hawaii, Boulder Colorado, or Key West. Maybe west coast (LA, Bay Area, Seattle) have companies that are more open to people with cruising lifestyle, and also offer well paying jobs?
"I went cruising for 7 years in my 40s. I was in a specialized and contracting area in education. I knew it would be hard if not impossible to get back in that area so did a MSc in Computer Education. I could pick and choose when I got back."
You did a MSc in computer in your mid 40s? And you were competitive with the young programmers swarming silicon valley?
