Hey there, about a month ago in one of the threads it was suggested to somebody who had little funds that to help fund there RTW trip clinical trials were a good option as they pay well.
Since then I have been in touch with a place near to where I live and have sent in an application form etc.
I am planning on going travelling spring 2006 with my girlfriend so the money would really help with that,its just everyone I have told about it friends/family all think I am crazy and it is too risky.
Has anybody had any experience with these trials,good or bad or have you got any advice.

I have done a couple and have known ppl that have done alot. Just look into what you are supposed to be testing if it sounds dodgy pass
I've tested sunscreen and gotten tanned except for a few spots. THe best ones to go for are 1s where you can continue to work outside and just go in for checkups and tests occasionally.As for your girlfreind Don't just think of the money think of the greater good :)

I did some over here and to be honest they werent that bad, i dram the line at anything with needles!but sometimes it works out well...I had a friend who did one in Edinburgh and was paid 800 for a case study on sleep depravation, all expenses paid and decent food!
