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.
Fiber optics technician/supervisor for Fiberdyne Labs in central NY. I provide tech support, engineering, quality control, LOGIC and COMMON SENSE. I'm the guy that everyone goes to when they don't know who to go to!
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.
Currently a student, and probably the youngest on the forum....My Dad bought the Gen4, and he is a Banker in SoCal. He gets people home loans and stuff like that. One of the top producers in the region!
I am currently studying for my Information Systems in Technology: Public Admin degree.

So I’ve been balling around the idea of getting a decal for the general, thinking about putting a big #3 on the hood to commemorate dale sr. Lol I thought that would be funny. So where you guys getting your decals. Can’t find any that look good and are the right size I want.

I’m dragging this subject up again. Why?
Marty Smith and his wife died yesterday at the Imperial Sand Dunes in a dune buggy roll over accident. Marty was an incredible motocross rider in the seventies and him being a local boy (Santee, Ca) he was a legend to us dirt bike guys back then. I had...
Saw a screen name on here that made me laugh, so how did you come up with your screen name? Mine came from my poor choice of hair style, the Mississippi mud flap ( think Joe Dirt). That was many years ago.
