What do you do for a living?
« on: October 11, 2014, 05:14:16 PM »
As the title states, what pays the bills?
I am an electro/hyrdro/mechanical type & I work at a recycling plant.
I am the only person who works both in the plant(secondary) which is a lot of motor/gearbox/control wiring work and on the equipment-excavators, clamp type fork trucks, wheel loaders and anything with an engine.
I like what I do, what about you?

Retired.
41 years as a Marine Electrician.
Loved it.
Beat the hell out of sitting in an office all day and getting a fat ass.
Way too much time on my hands now.
But I have my CB 160 I'm rebuilding to keep me busy.
And lots of beer.
Especially now that winter is coming.

Snow gear in Florida? I'm surprised that there is much of a market. Where is the closest good snow?

Snow in general is North Carolina. Good snow depends on who you ask. I don't mind Snowshoe West Virginia but most people will say Breckenridge Colorado.

Sounds too far for a week-end road trip.

I've never been over that side of the country before. I'd like to see it some time. I think air-boats would be great fun!
