    The last two years I've been a Compliance officer for a publicly owned electrical utility. I did roughly seven years of HR career promotion and the first twenty years I was the Operator of a 1200 mega watt generating station. Five years till retirement and around two to three before I go my elephant.

    Well, I'd like to be, I've done two plains game hunts and would like to be successful at elephant and Cape buffalo. I never thought I'd want to, but back in 2013 I saw a few YouTube videos and have been hooked since then.

    I'm fifty nine years old and I go to sleep most nights dreaming of the chance and opportunity to face these two done. I'm like a twelve year old kid, I'm not kidding its on my mind all day. Only five years left till retirement, I'd like to get one done before then and the last a a retirement gift to me...

    Started out working in landscaping, then a car wash, sheet metal fabrication factory, machine shop, merchant marine, heavy industry machine shops, steel mill machinist, outside machinist/locomotive operator on the Panama Canal, 2nd job tree surgeon, auto assembly plant toolmaker, in between too many sweatshops to remember, freelance commercial pilot, finishing up with a nine year stint teaching nights at a community college. Only work I do now is build rifles to take to Africa and pro bono work for farmers taking care of groundhogs and other crop pests. :D

    Yeah, I lost count of how many employers and jobs. Some were fun and some weren't. Forgot to add I drove a tri-axle dump truck one summer for a buddy starting his business. Ironic, through friends and acquaintances, I still get job offers.
