I've considered that... except I'd need to stay in one place then. So far, my total compensation consists of one luke warm beer from a Yank in the St. Lawrence River.

He ran out of fuel on his way to "the club" with his much younger wife and their kid. All three were soaked, frozen and the boat was taking on water quickly.

All this for a beer! (I was glad to have been of assistance mind you...
