My wife and i are seriously considering packing up and doing some traveling/contract work for a few months. We figure if this is something we wanted to do we should do it now since our son is still only 22 months and we wouldn't be taking him from friends or dayschool or anything of that nature.
We got the idea from a contracted worker who is at my wife's rehab facility now who works for this http://www.dhcstaffing.com/index.html
company. She's been doing this for years and loves it. I have traveled a bit across the country but my wife has been virtually nowhere and has been wanting to get out of Florida for some time now.
I have been playing stay at home daddy so i won't be out of a job and actually we would come out a bit ahead $$ wise because they pay for lodging, travel, and some expenses. We could shut down our utilities at home for a few months and have the neighbors keep an eye out and we'd be set.
The only concern we have is when we are tired of traveling to different cities every 3 months is her getting her job back. I don't think they'd be thrilled for her doing this and wouldn't gaurantee holding her job. However, Florida is always in dire need of healthcare workers and we don't think it would be a problem catching on again somewhere.
Anyone have any experience with this? Only problem i have is figuring out how to lug my desktop around since i can't afford a laptop.
