Good morning. As a COTA (Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant) I may have the opportunity to work a temporary position, I assume on St. Thomas. I believe this is the location as this is where the immediate health-hub is, at least so I am told. I'm just beginning this process but thought if anyone had any suggestions, or wisdoms, please free free. ALSO: I am an avid motorcycle rider, not afraid of much. Are there any places to lease/rent a motorcycle for a 13 week period? (I appreciate the "no neurosurgeon" in the area humor). I am also a past Honda mechanic so could give confidence to anyone renting. Hope this works out and I appreciate your comments. To conclude, you're speaking with a 52 y.o. male, who enjoys a pothole in the road, wants to assist some local folks with healthcare needs, and would love to meet some new people while I'm there. Who knows, if all works smooth, I may become more than a visitor. BTW: I did live on the Big Island of Hawaii, Kona side, so I sort-of understand the slower paced Island life. (And what happens when the surf's up!) Thank-you for all the suggestions. Good times to all.

Good day inthemix,

I don't know of anyone who would do a long-term lease on a motorcycle, but you could call the scooter shop there and ask -- Biz scooter rentals, http://www.scootervi.biz/ shows they rent for $220 per week. For 13 weeks you'd probably do better to buy a used bike when you get on island and sell it when you leave, especially if you're leaving in high season -- there will be demand. Bring your own helmet and watch out!

Good luck to you; let us know if you find a place to rent a bike.

Thank-you fdr. You are right! I was spoiled in Big Island. Worked at shop and had a used 750 Honda for free. Things looking grim to come down anyway. I'm being told there are too many fantasy seekers lined up to work in your healthcare areas. Bummer.

I'm not sure where you heard this. There is a great need for healthcare workers. Now, you may not get the money you want, but there is definitely work to do!
