My wife will be riding with me once I go solo in my own truck. For those of you in this similar situation have you or your spouse run across any income opportunities for your ride long spouse/mate that does not include them driving? Any thoughts would be appreciated and if we ever come across any I will be sure to post them. Thanks.

Write books, start a blog, make YouTube videos. That's just what comes to my mind first.

Im a published author and know many who pay personal assistants to advertise, post links on facebook, beta read before publishing for content consistency....heck some pay for book reviews. if she has art skills, she can use photoshop or gimp to make book covers that can sell for $60-$200 each depending on her artistic skills.

Its not work persay but continuing education with correspondance type programs would be a constructive way to pass time and fight rider boredom.

Along the lines of what Rainy mentioned, there are a ton of freelancer websites out there for all sorts of work, from proofreading to graphic design to computer programming to selling photos. The pay is going to be pretty minimal, especially if you don't have top notch skills, but it's certainly worth exploring.

Im not quite in solo yet but when i do i will have my gf riding with me. She will likely be doing a lot of crocheting or knitting projects that she can sell online and we can ship to customers as the projects complete. Making a blanket can take a while to complete. She also made a lot of jewelery in the past but i think that would take too much space at the level she did it.
