In today's economy, more than a bit of truth. But another truth is once you (at a young age) walk away from getting a 'higher level education' the harder it is to go back.

That's a tough one... going through this with my daughter. She'll be a freshman at Colorado State (Fort Collins) this fall with a passion for wildlife biology. I told her she'll earn a good living and really enjoy life as a wildlife biologist... unless of course she marries another wildlife biologist... in which case they'll both be living in my basement hoping to pay off their student loans some day.

All kidding aside, making a go of it as a full time guide is probably no piece of cake either judging from the few that I have known over the years.

Good luck with whatever you decide.
