It seems that a good trade to know if you want to move away from the city would be to know how to be a barber.They can find work everywhere.I lived out in the country not long ago. No barber for miles around,The nearest was 15 mles away and seldom open for business,when he was there was a long wait. I hd a postal van converted for what ever I needed to do .Often you need tools ,materials for building or pipe which I had racks on the side for that pipe that would not fit in the back of a half ton pickup.That van was good for everything I needed to do and I made extra money with it.I thought it would be nice to have a mobile barbershop but I dont know how to do that trade. There is a barber chair here in this shop now. It seems one could be bolted down in a box van and the barber could travel and stop anywhere there would be customers.But as usual,Regulations by governing agencies prevent a lot of convienient sevices that the people could want.If you work for the government ,as I observed in DC,You can wander around on the streets and take care of your personal affairs while on the clock.
