20. I don't think truck driver would be a bad job... Fuck, I would do it if I knew how to drive.
My uncle does it... Reasonable money, and you don't have some management wonk constantly breathing down your neck. I don't have kids, wife, or a house. I would do it if motorized vehicles didn't scare the shit out of me.
