I'm considering a career change, but to what?

Currently, I'm doing tech support and doing well at it. I have plenty of responsibility and autonomy, am well compensated and work in a pretty good environment, but I just can't see doing this for the rest of my life. Does anyone have any experience with one of those career counseling companies? Did they help you to find something that you loved to do for a living? I'm concerned that they're going to tell me that I have an aptitude for systems administration (already doing that, thanks). One thing I have thought of idly was getting back into archaeology (I came this close to getting a degree in it, but finished with a history degree instead). I'm trying to volunteer for some field work, but I'm concerned that I'm too old to get into the profession and I want to see if I can find something that's perfect for me that I haven't considered anyway.
