Nice! I was stationed in Korea but I was WAY up north. I didn't get to see snow except out of the hatch on my M1A1. I have flown in many a blackhawk though. Nice ride. Really smooth compared to most other heli's. Maybe you should start a heli-board operation when you retire?

Cool thread. Interesting to see what everyone does.

I'm an energy analyst at a mechanical/electrical firm in Boston that does all the electrical and HVAC design for large commercial buildings. Work is project based, so it stays interesting (for the most part) but I push tons of paper, which can get frustrating. Riding a desk does absolutely nothing for me - I wish I could go out and work with my hands sometimes.

Weekends in the winter I coach snowboarding for 10-14 year olds in New Hampshire. Basically day camp. It's awesome, I love working with kids.

Now that's fucked! You'd think after smelling it you wouldn't want to go anywhere near the stuff! Now that said, dumb hot chicks are fun, but they wig me out. I have trouble talking to people that can't carry on a normal conversation. I don't know what to say!

My job: I'm an OHS professional for a large construction company. Lots of people don't like me but that's fine by me, I'm not at work to make friends! The work is tough at times, and hair pulling at other times because everybody wants to take a shortcut somehow. On the other hand the management team is good, and fully supports safety, the pay is reasonable, and the benefits are good. I've been working for them since I was 21! Could be a lifer now...

I'm an attorney, which sucks.

The good: I make enough money to buy equipment and pay for some cool trips around the country (thinking about going to New Zealand to board their during our summer).

The bad: Don't have as much time as I like to get away!

Depends on the time of year, but my real full time job is an optician, one year round part time job is working at a shop selling longboards, and then my seasonal gig is teaching instructing a few times a month. I've tapered that off significantly though as I am CONSTANTLY exhausted during the winter season and can't seem to do anything more than sleep when I'm not working.

Great gig! Kids are great, and keeps my weekends open to board.
Although I don't get as many weekdays in as I would like...
