It's always nice to hear about you, other then you swing an ACE, GTI, GTP, AT Pro, water machine , gold machine etc. Sometimes what you do or did for a living can be a real asset to some issues on the forum. And, it would just be interesting to see the broad spectrum of careers which may have triggered a desire to metal detect.



I guess I'll start...........

A RN Specializing With Hip & Knee Replacement Rehab Therapy......

Been an RN for about 20 years. Prior to that I flew hot air balloons for a living for about 5 years, prior to that property management and prior to that an environmental education to hopefully become a conservation officer for wildlife protection, but as is sometimes the case, things don't always turn out as planned. I have a lovely (only) wife of 24 years marriage, 4 & kids.

Life's been good!

Hazmat, currently. That's where I've used the Fisher two box metal detector - to find old underground leaking fuel tanks and the connecting pipes. Been in hazmat for 28 years although I'm mostly in the administrative end now, sitting at a desk. Previously, I was an agricultural loan officer, a pesticide applicator, and a down hole mineral logger for a coal mine. Been playing the guitar since I was eight - I won't say how long ago that was. I play for my church band, gotta show those younguns that are my band mates how to rock.:super:
