Amid a newly kindled interest in touring, I've been reading a little on the forums and elsewhere on the subject. It seems that many tours take place over long periods of time; weeks, months or more. It would seem that taking on such a tour would disrupt money flow and career, making for a difficult return to life as it had previously been known. Plus I would assume touring to tax heavily on social and family life. Bills and rent still need to be paid whether you are on tour or not.
So how do people do it?
