Ok, I'll go....I am a Field Service Technician for Ricoh USA. I repair high volume production digital printers. I support an area from Ann Arbor Michigan to Toledo Ohio and anywhere else they need me. Been doing this for 30 years. Drive about 150 miles a day and still look forward to driving sxs's in my spare time.

27 years in Law Enforcement and currently in Investigations. I started a security business ( Burglar alarms and CCTV systems) about 19 years ago.

But more important, I am a grandfather to 4 wonderful grandkids with one more on the way. Life starts when you become a grandparent.

I am a banker. At least the kids think so. I dole out my retirement money as needed. Well it seems that way sometimes. I was an industrial electrician for 20+ years and ended my work years as an automation specialist, writing code for PLCs and HMIs to automate machinery in a plywood manufacturing plant. I supervised installations and was the go to guy for breakdowns that went bad. I was also the guy they called at 2 am when some sleepy operator accidently hit some forgotten E-stop he didn't know was there. lol.

I'm a pipe fitter for an energy supply company here in Colorado. In my area, I do everything from putting pipe in the ground to responding to natural gas emergencies and carbon monoxide alarm calls. We're governed by the D.O.T. so we have a lot of compliance work to do annually and paperwork to fill out. The paperwork is crazy. I can respond to, fix, and gas back up a hit line quicker than it takes to complete the paperwork for said damage. All in all, I love my job. I get to meet new people everyday, I'm doing something different everyday, and it allows me to afford my toys, my General, my Sea Doo's, my camper, my vacations, my tools, my soon to be new Ford Super Duty ?, can't wait on that one, etc, etc...

I'm an electrical engineer, specializing in controls and automation. Been doing it for 27 years. If you watch "How its made" and seen lots of automated machines and processes. I engineer and program them. You'll never know the feeling you get when you start a 3500hp blower with a simple mouse click (especially when you did all the engineering that makes it happen). I make 6 figures, and I get to play with some of the coolest stuff. Talk about being lucky.
