I am a Maintenance Specialist for a very large greeting card company so I am a skilled machinist, electrician, welder, fabricator, and robotics trained racing rookie! I'm glad I have these skills because I found out when I built my first car this year by myself that I knew very little about building a car and had to rely on alot of good advice from alot of very helpful racers. Listening is a good occupation for a racer.

Self employed master plumber. I also do some bushhog and tractor work during the summer for cash for the car. I work by myself and wouldn`t have it any other way.
It`s pretty cool, set your own hours,nobody losing your tools, and no SOB boss telling you have to work sat and sun.
Downside is taxes for the self employed SUCK. Nice part is if there is no work for the day I can ride my Harley or scrounge through junk yards.
