I am a maintenance supervisor for a school district. I had 31 buildings when I started working there 10 years ago. We have had to demo a few of them the last couple of years. All of them but one are over 50 years old so I am always dealing with Plumbing, Electrical and HVAC issues. So working on a 40 year old mustang is relaxing.

Easier to post a link than explain

 

So this is as close to rocket science as I've seen yet hahahaha:D

 

Who plays with tiny rockets? I played with C4/D5 SLBM's!

Retied Navy Missile Technician 20yrs, Currently Ordnance mechanic and Autozone Parts manager 8 yrs on the side. Full time Ford Fanatic.


Retired from 28 Years in the Air Force..25 of those flying in the back of the "Four fans of Freedom" (C-130s) as a Loadmaster. Now doing it part time with a civilian company....

 

Old Planes and Old Cars-just can't beat 'em

 

Gotta love them herky birds, but prefer a couple of J79's in full afterburner anyday!


I am an Air Force cop and I plan on a long term career in the military or even go to the the civilian side of law enforcement.

 

What's your 1st General Order?..lol

I have been Security Forces for 20 years. I'm actually retiring in two weeks. Good luck with your career.

 

Don't buy a chevy! haha LE or physical guys? What do the new guys do now the line of thuds are gone at Lackland?


 

Were you stationed at Bangor (WA)?

 

Spent 16 years at that base. The NW is really a nice place to live and I was lucky to have been able to stay in one area so long.

 

except for all the liquid sunshine!


Decided to take the day off from my rebuild today and was browsing through the site and decided to let you all know what I've done and what I do now.

 

Spent a little over 20 yrs in the navy in the silent service (Hunt for Red October stuff) on both types of boats. First on fast attack looking for everyone and and then on the FBM's (Trident) hiding from everyone.

 

My next stint after retiring was to go into the computer industry starting off with MSFT, then STB Systems, 3DFX and finally NVIDIA. Been working with Windows since Win 95.

 

For hobbies I like working on cars and so far I have rebuilt a 78 Little Red Express truck that I found for $400.00, currently restoring my 73 Mach 1 and then I found a 71 Roadrunner which I plan to start next year sometime.

 

Also did alot of Salmon fishing up here but boats are worse money pits than cars :)

 

Well, that's about it, I hope to get to know you all better, tap on your extensive knowledge and help others when possible.

I used to live on John Ogle Rd in Brownsville, right by the Burke Bay Marina! I worked at Bremerton Stereo and Video on Riddell Rd and Wheaton Way. I'll bet we passed each other a few times!!!

 

I lived at the fairgrounds and launched my boat from that marina all the time. Small world:) I'll meet up with you in Vegas in April.

I'm still a stones throw from both locations......

I'm currently an autopilot software engineer and embedded systems developer, but I used to make video games for EA for roughly 10 years. Primarily the Need For Speed franchise, but have 2 James Bond titles under my belt as well. Oh, and I actually ride a Buell as my primary form of transportation. The Mustang is for special occasions!

And every intersection on every road on our private island must have a Christmas tree!

Speeding fines will be issued to those not doing the limit!

 

Since we're all old farts, we may as well put up a pub, a gas station, a motel and a restaurant on all crossroads... What say.
