A great Carny once told me "it's a hard way to make an easy living" with that said I will tell you that I am "off the Road" now, happily married and have 2 wonderful kids. I would NOT ever trade the years I was "ON" the road. If you have "no strings" and you enjoy the work make sure you look at all of your options but if it all shakes out GO FOR IT"

Good luck[:D]

Do it daniel , i strongly suggest it . You will grow up a lot better person and a lot faster on the midway then anywhere else right now . However winter is right around the corner , so MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A PLAN FOR WINTER QUARTERS , good luck !
So, in a few years, if you're walking down a midway and see a Sixcat or a Swinger or a bucket, look around. You might recognize an old man with a smile on his face. Especially if he's saying, "Hey Buddy, can I ask ya?" -sixcat,circa. 2007

I don't think you are ready for it. Try for steady employment in your hood, get some good working skills, then decide in a year or two. The midway will eat you alive.

Daniel, there's nothing wrong with being spot help, or even a 40-miler. It helps scratch the itch [:)]

i think you should have chosen to go.
i regret not deciding to go back in March when i had the chance,and now i have to wait until next March before haveing that chance again.
i guess the only reason i did'nt go was because i'm only 16 right now,and well,i wanna stay in school (atleast until next year.) and my gramma convinced me to atleast wait till next year when i'm 17.

BUT I WISH I WOULD HAVE WENT.

heh. thats just my opinion though.

But hey,whatever you decide is always cool. go with your heart and you cant go wrong. [:)]

Where Abouts is your hometown anyway ? Depending on where your currently living, can make or break your choice ! [xx(](For Example : If I was living In the STICKS,(a.k.a.- B.F.E.) & it was 30 miles to the nearest anything , I would definitly run with the wind !!! You only live once , so live it up while you can !Besides.... Being GREEN ,and on the road , will grow HAIR on your Chest ,kinda like a carpet sample ![:0]

Ya futurecarny was in the same boat a year or two ago.But know im thinking that this might be my last summer in cali so i should spend it with friends and live it up alittle. Yes i might regret it but i will have to live with it.I also want to wait a little because im 18 i think i will wait until 19 or 20.Know if i move to the east coast will i have trouble finding a good carnival?

Thanks you all, well i will make my final decision to day and more then likey its NO.
