Money on the move. Any ideas?

My wife and I have only been travelling for a couple of months and I am becoming bored. We have enough cash to get by on for a while but I still like the idea of a little bit coming in.
I like the idea of being a travelling salesman. It seems logical. Travelling from place to place selling something or taking orders for a business back in the city. It's a wonder more companies don't utilise grey nomads to spread the word and their products as they tour around. after all, most cover the whole country at some stage.
Does anyone have any ideas? My wife and I are not into fruit picking and so on.
Has anyone made any money along these lines or made any money in other  ways, even a little offbeat.

I dont get bored and spent some time daily keeping healthy and getting exercise. Like to stay as healthy and fit as long as possible in my old age.
If you have a trade there is never a problem getting work in the country part time. I turn part time down work all the time. I do work a bit in my trades like many nomads.
Cannot understand how you are becoming bored as there is so much to do and see. Along with my hobbies dont have enough time in a day.

Live life to the fullest as you have no idea how long you are going to be here to enjoy the greatest country on earth.

Perhaps you could take up a hobby that makes you money.  I've met quite a few nomads who invested in gem cutting equipment, learned a lot about gemstones, faceting and even geology and also made some money at it.  Photography is another hobby that can bring in some dollars if you're good at it.  I would guess that there may be a shortage of professional photographers for events and even school photos in some regions.
