    Re: What do you do for work

    First time I saw that building on a Vancouver visit I got a bit dizzy and wondered who the hell was responsible for it. Now we know.

    Cool Re: What do you do for work

    First trade as an electrician, in 1979 I got hired by McDonnell Douglas Aircraft building DC-9 and DC-10 airplanes.
    Rally driving for a bunch of years in the 80s.
    Then moved to Vancouver worked at Canadian Aircraft Products, Helicopter Welders, Canadian Helicopters in repair and
    maintenance, a few more smaller helicopter operations, when after getting out of the aircraft business I got hired at a car
    restoration shop as a mechanic, besides some interesting projects, I was responsible keeping the boss's rally car running.
    The last 7 years working as the Service Manager at Kits Inflatables in Vancouver.
    Now happily retired in the Cariboo

    Still working a bit but mostly retired. Logger, framing, fuel delivery driver, commercial fisherman and tow boat captain at the end. Over 45 years up and down the coast. Loved every minute of it, even the shitty weather.
