I have been a Civil Engineering Technician for 20 years?

I would like to "get out of the box", meaning a cubicle. Can't take it much more. Does anyone know of a job that deals with the public that can utilize my technical skills? I don't mind taking a small pay cut but I have two kids to feed and need to find something that will pay close to what I make now. I'm lucky, in that I get to work with smart people, but the cubicle enviroment is going to make me go insane pretty soon. Any suggestions?
