Wow, I feel pretty inadequate now.

17 years as a mechanic, 10 of those at GM dealers. ASE Mastertech, GM World Class Tech, etc.

The last six years have been spent in corporate sales management for Standard Motor Products. Fancy name for salesman.

Pays the bills, foots the camping need.

Thanks to those that have served and been part of the space program!

I am an Online/Network Marketer. Been that way for the past 5 years. I do everything from website setup to affiliate marketing to creating our own products and doing customer service.

My Wife is a Business Analyst at big company around here.

We recently had a son (almost 6 months old) that will be going camping for the first time -- I'm sure he will love it! And we have 2 dogs; 6 yr old Miniature Beagle -- That's on the fatty side -- and a 12 yr old Sheppard/Lab/etc Mix that we rescued a couple years ago.

I started camping in 1965 with my parents, a canvas pop up made in Breslau, Not graduated through several RVs. Was a Cub Scout and led a troop with my Sons and Daughter who is a Chief Scout and Queens Venturer. I made my own conversion van in 1981, bought a 22 ft RV in 1991(towed with a Grand Marquis and a 351 Variable Venturi 4BBl carb) for the kids and I to go camping while they were still in diapers. New chapter with DW Number 2 got back in the game buying a 32 ft Rockwood upgrading 13 months laster to a 32 ft 8289 Fiver to see this great land we call Canada and our close Neighbours to the south. I am a Broadcast Engineer specialist in TV Mobile Broadcast worldwide (many Olympic assignments) and a RF Specialist on Microwave transmission and High Power television transmission. I flew in Helicopters with Wescams all over Newfoundland, some day we will travel the rock to see it from the ground. DW is a Girl Guide leader still active with leading girls but the camping in the tent is nearing the end for her, a Yurt with heaters in January at -30 dF is more her liking now for women's weekend in the wilderness. DW was camping in tent trailers, conversion vans and when I met her had a TT at a lakeside park. We upgraded that after we met as a wedding gift to each other. I am in my retirement job now running the Engineering Department at a Media+Design School at the local Community College with a great staff teaching students all about technology, media, radio, TV, journalism and design.
Life is good, 12 years left to full time Saturday's, till then many weeks of trips, weekends and maybe even a winter trip to Texas for a month at some point after tenure. Looking forward to Goshen and sea of RVs.

Work full time as a bookkeeper/Comptroller Assistant for a large Ford/Lincoln Dealership in Baton Rouge, LA. Also, I work part-time as a Realtor/Consultant. Have been camping my entire childhood and off and on in my adult life. Now our children are grown and we just bought our first camper. We are looking forward making our own camping memories together.

I'm the piano player in a house of ill-repute.

Actually, I figured that was more respectable than what I really do, which is a self-employed tire business owner.

I was dropped on my head a lot as a baby.

No need to feel inadequate, SKnight. Many (most?) folks who write/wrote computer software can't pass the assessments necessary to earn GM World Class tech. My son was certified as such 8 or so years ago. He's smarter/more capable than I am. He and I both know it.

Man, I could use you for my blog. The lack of budget and funds hurts that though!

As for me- web developer for a government contractor doing business applications. Not glamorous, but I work from home full time. We travel around daughter's school vacation schedule and I often times work from the road out of the camper. I run a few web sites that make me pennies most months. And have a couple of freelance customers, though, I've cut almost all of that off in lieu of family time.

Two kids- ages 10 and 2.
