thats a good question
I have a similar one, im still in high school, but want to know of any jobs out there that allow time for such things, I plan on going on a PCT thru hike before college, and mabey an AT thru hike before as well or just after. but I dont plan on that being it for my thru hiking, also, I am very interested in the sport of adventure racing, any job I persue, would have to allow time for this, as well as frequent weekend backpacking trips. what do you AR guys out there do for a living, or are those racers sponsered by large companies paid enough to live on. Sorry to mabey hijack the thread, If it is a problem I will repost in another thread. but how dose one get involved in the sport, and/or be discovered by large companies like salomon, golite, timberland, ect.
I really dont know much about it at all, but I love the idea of it, and am a vrey good distance runner, any info would be apereciated.
