Now retired. Spent close to 40 years in the education business as a Phys ed teacher, vice principal, principal, Director of Education. I now work part time as a starter at a private golf course south of Calgary, AB Canada.
Did a great amount of detecting for years back in Saskatchewan. Floated my detector on an inner tube to work the water.
Getting back into again and loving it! Just bought an AT Pro and it's driving me a little crazy but know I'm going to enjoy it.

I grew up on a farm in central NSW.
In 1980, I saw the light - I joined the NSW railway & became a train driver way out in the sticks of Western NSW. In 1988 I transferred to Dubbo in central NSW & continued to drive trains until my medical retirement. I have since had a knee reconstruction & a hip replacement.
I was in the communications dept of the Emergency services until 1984.
This year will be my 30th wedding anniversary - I hope our daughter shouts us a holiday to New Zealand.
Due to a minor brain injury, I may need a little help on some of the forums, thanks everyone in advance for that help.

I'd like to say I won the lottery at a young age and never had a job but that would be wrong. 4 years degree in Computer Science back in 1998. Haven't worked with computers since... Own construction company in rural Southern Minnesota. Wife, 2 kids, and too damn many pets.



Why work when you can play in the dirt....Clad is Bad!!!

Spent 22 years in the US Air Force as Aircraft Avionics and Instrumentation and Unit Computer Security Manager. Started my own business as Manufacturing ERP/MRP Consultant. Then our Senate and Congress allowed the buy-out of our Manufacturing by European Consortium's, that ended my business as they moved the manufacturing out of the country. Now work as an IT Field Administrator (JOAT) at Adesa PA Auto Auctions.
