Wow, I can't believe you posted this 3 years ago and only received a couple of replies!( I am self sufficient, have my own funds and NO PETS!)) I have alot of skills to share and just completed my PDC course last month. I have a well maintained truck where I can sleep in the back if necessary.
I'm sure much has changed for you in the last three years, so maybe your post is no longer relevant, but if it is, please contact me!
