Most Adventure Jobs have allot of downtime - that's why so many guys in the "Adventure" line of work are alcoholics
But even downtime is interesting when you are in some 3rd world country surrounded by like minded Adventurers

requires the same focus that a shooter does

-Get up whenever I want.
-Run a few miles, hit weights, typical physical training.
-Have a hot bath and tea with my wife in the jacuzzi and talk about the day/planning mostly.
-Make a good breakfast and shoot the shit on the 'net for a while (like this).
-Get to work, which could mean any of the following and then some:
Walking through the woods observing ecological and biological processes and planning how to manipulate them to serve primarily man (the owner of the lands I am walking), but not always and never solely. Sometimes I investigate trespass involving the theft or destruction of trees, search for property corners, visit courthouses to investigate legal documents, paint trees, ride around on motorcycles or drive around in trucks with the GPS on mapping trails or a host of other things; the fieldwork is awesome, except for the freeing precipitation and the biting and stinging arthropods.
Office work mostly involves either writing documents, drafting contracts, marketing, I.T. work, data entry of information collected in the field, building spreadsheets, making maps, researching specific work related issues, and setting up meetings with people in the middle of anywhere and nowhere.
Sometimes its fun, sometimes its tedious. I wouldn't really call it boring except for the necessary data entry stuff - that IS boring.
If I'm home from the field, I shower the spiders out of my hair, bark from out of the crevices and wash the scratches up good.
It varies every single day, just the way I like it.
If anyone ever wants to spend a day with me in the field, just pm me. Most people have no idea what it is I do, and anyone with an adventurous spirit would have fun and learn a bunch of things you can't get off the 'net.
.... I have made shit up at times just for the hell of it.
