Avionics TechRep for P-3C Orion airplanes in New Orleans. I help the sailors when extra nasty problems show up in the avionics.
Nowhere else can you find vaccum tube radios, a 1 Mhz main computer with 64k memory, gyro stabilized satcom linked IR zoom cameras and touchpanel plasma displays in one airframe.

Trend?
You might notice a trend here. Nearly everyone is in some kind of technical or "gadget" oriented kind of business. I think you have to have that type of aptitude to love these toys.

For the most part I am no exception. I am a sales rep for a large manufacturer of access control systems, CCTV, security systems, fire alarm systems, etc... I get to tell and show people all the cool stuff they can have for their buildings.

Well........I'm gonna put a large spanner in the works here, I'm a simple farmer from the uk who, after seeing Bubba ride, has hung his MX boots up and is spending the xtra cash on R/C helis now, then hopefully fullsize heli lessons starting at the end of the summer.

Good luck to you all

I will break out of the trend also:

Cabinetry installer: going on 7 years now. Love the job. While everybody is leaving the subdivisions to go to the city, I am going to the subdivisions to go to work, no traffic. Sub contractor, so I can work anytime I want, which is almost all the time. And being in FL my view out the back of the house where I work is usually a golf course, wetland area, or ocean. I dig working with my hands, which comes in handy with our machines doesn't it.
