What do you do for a living?

I work in the wine and spirits distribution world in a sales management role.  It's not as fun as most people think, but it does have it's perks.  I was able to play Spanish Bay and Pebble on one of my wine suppliers dime.  That was unforgettable.

I'm 33 these days and I've been a machinist for Eaton (hydraulics division) for 9 years now.  I've done a little bit of everything, but I started on an old industry titan, a NATCO drill press and eventually moved into CNC machinery 4 years ago, but I did a lot of other things along the way.  I've worked all 3 shifts during that time and I'm currently on 3rd shift (11pm-7:30A.M.).  Currently, I'm just riding the steady ship to see how the 4th quarter plays out with the sale being finalized around that time.

Nice! What engine if you don’t mind me asking? I work on aircraft engines as well. Not jet engines, but turboprop...

F100, F117, F119, F135, TF33.  Jet engines are fun and a challenge, they run hot enough to melt them but we do amazing things to keep the metals "cool".

I love the feeling I get when I’m climbing a water tower. It’s like 1/2 scared 1/2 excited. IMG_0476.JPG
There is a “spotter” you can see, to call the corner if something happens I guess 🤷‍♂️

Nope! I climbed tall towers at the beginning of my career in the Coast Guard and I was terrified every time. Hahaha

I am an assistant nuclear reactor operator for the federal government. I previously served 8 years in the USMC (avionics) and became a journeyman wire-man electrician with the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW). I followed that up with an undergrad in Org Leadership (U of Indianapolis) and a grad in tech project management (Embry-Riddle). I mention all of this because it used up a lot of valuable time I could have spent playing golf, but the other stuff has admittedly helped with things like food and shelter.

Thank you for your service!  I regularly, before COVID-19, play with a 76-year old USMC fighter pilot.  He's about a 6 'cap.

Work for TVA?  Sequoyah?  Never made it down there, but spent a lot of time in Oak Ridge.

I hated my physical therapist when I had my knee replaced.  He made me do things that hurt!!  But in the end it was worth it, because I can play pain-free... in my knee.  The rest of me, not so much!  😆
