Sr Field Service Technician for a large industrial coding and marking company. Almost 40 years doing that. I am in many different factories installing/servicing laser, thermal and ink printers and label applicators. I get to see how many things are made. I love the high tech places I go, hate the food plants. Slaughter house/meat plants really turn my stomach.

Pretty interesting how most find their fit in the job, they it looks like some real longevity. If most are close to my age on this forum 40’s-60’s (average), then there are some experienced craftsmen in a wide variety of fields here. Some valuable peoples and skills

I work as an electrician for my local municipality. It's all outside electrical work. I work on traffic signals, drill and set light pole bases, concrete work, wire up lighting cabinets and signal cabinets. My department is kind of the be all do all. If the city needs something done, we are usually the ones to do it. In the winter I plow snow as well and the OT gets good.

Wow! Most people in your shoes wouldn't consider riding a motorcycle.
I've been a new car dealer service advisor/manager for 23 years. Sold cars for 2.5 years before that. US Navy 1989-1995 Interior Communications Electrician 2nd class. I was lifer material and ready to sign again, but they wouldn't give me shore duty on the east coast.

It's funny you say that because ED and ICU nurses are alot of adrenaline junkies. But when it comes to street bikes that is the biggest no go. I ride motocross also. I have gotten my fair share of comments from coworkers. But to tell you the truth what I have stopped doing after being in my career. I flat out will not ride a bicycle on a road in a city. If I have to walk on a sidewalk my head is constantly swiveling for cars. Majority of the traumas are pedestrian struck by vehicle. Not so much motorcycles crashes. Besides its the right wrist that causes most fatal bike crashes.
