Thank you, I got my trophy nine years ago, is he still a GM tech? I fell victim to what GM called the "World Class Curse" three years later and left for Standard.

My place on Earth is fixing cars, but I was the reason for my own demise.

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.
You crack me up.

Only one other person I know retains jokes the way wmtire does, and that's my DH. Once when we camped together he and DH sat outside until the wee hours talking. I asked what they were talkin' so long about; just sharing jokes back and forth.

Tuesday night DH called him just to tell him a new joke he heard. A 2 min. conversation, just to hear that crazy laugh of wmtire's. And he laughed *twice* at that one!

I am here because I was blessed with two wonderful parents who had the wisdom to instill in me, the fear of disappointment and the courage to overcome my short-comings. As a result I have moved past my failures and become a successful nurse... 11 1/2 yrs as an ICU nurse (trauma, cardiac, med surg and Neuro ICU) followed by an additional 4 yrs of working in endoscopy. Yes, that's right I'm the one that sedates people for their colonoscopies My DH is a surgical tech so between the two of us, my 7 yr old DD can't fake a stomach ache or a fever.

After years of competing horses and hauling them to shows, I put those trailer driving skills to work on a white knuckle set up. I taught DH how to drive the rig, but I still do most of the driving. Several years, many great camping friends, our 3rd TV, 1 TT and soon to be our 1st 5er later, we are still going strong and making more friends.

This is Tuffy when we brought her home. She is waiting to make a new connection with Dreamer (the Sabre 34REQS we pick up in 2 1/2 weeks).

I'm a full time Paramedic, Emergency Medical Service in East Tennessee. My wife is a Forensic Scientist.... Not too hard to see who funds our camping fun. I was raised spending lots of time in the great outdoors and this year introducing my 9 month old son to camping.

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.
Haha yeah. To really keep up with one takes a lot of time and energy haha. But we change up what we do almost daily lol. I between my Brother and I we own/operate over 1,000 websites on a range of topics

Your services are greatly appreciated. My father was a Paramedic before he retired so I understand somewhat what you guys can go through.
