    All the very best for your venture. Wish I could afford to do something like that, but with a new mortgage and what not I think I may have to wait a few years before I can start living life again!

    @sidewinder - i was going to hand my notice in and then go off travelling during the winter, but they didnt want me to leave so gave me unpaid leave instead!!

    i had a friend that did that sort of thing for a mexican burrito stall, went to all kinds of festivals for free, and had use of better facilities
    i used to do some event work, mostly bar work, local footie/rugby, the races. got to go to twickers once and watch England thrash Wales. awesome
    i'd never get a 3 month sabbatical though.

    this is what i do, apart from i dont work on the mexican stand - although if it was england (which i assume it is) i know the guy that runs the company (although it could be the other as there are a couple).

    I work indian trailer so if anybody is at a music festival and sees a purple trailer im cooking it!
