Default Can You Tow? An Easy Way To Get Paid To Travel!

If you own a truck and/or trailer you can now make money moving other people's items for them with a service called Uship.com. It's like eBay for shipping, you simply play UPS's role.

My cousin uses the service to pay for his gas to destinations he wants to go.

Heck, there's even a T.V. show about it called "Shipping Wars".

Interested? Check it out at http://www.uship.com/

There is also an active market for moving airplanes between seller and buyer, or for other reasons like maintenance or simply a need to reposition.

It's called ferry flight.

Default Active market moving boats, yachts and weapons too.

VERY active and lucrative market moving submarines too. Need a small well trained crew, but the pay is phenomenal ... only one trip a year puts you on easy street.

So, to "double down" on the profits of moving RV's, hook up with DEA or other alphabet agency...take along some AK 47s for the Mexican drug cartels too.

AND, be sure to mule back some highly profitable drugs too.

PS. I did the driver thing for a couple of years, not so lucrative but it did get you around the country. And for the right person, it is a fun gig.

Haha, who's selling the submarine's and where are they being sold to?

If we're exporting American wouldn't M4's be the go to gun?

Default I could tell you but then...

you know the rest.

Exporting "American"?????

HA.

Most criminals and terrorists in the world wouldn't be caught dead using the M4. The AK47 is the "American Express" card of thugs everywhere, they don't leave home without it.
