Chip, before you abandon this opportunity, see if you can't come up with a
*really* good excuse for why you can start in October instead of August.
Tell them that you would really like the job, but can't start until
October.  Just use some excuse having to do with school- like you are
"taking the time to learn and mature in your field of study" (little do
they know that your "field of study" is BACKPACKING!!) :-)
