Well boys, I no longer work in the construction/excavation/clearing industry.. I start working for a shop, being taught to rebuild automatic transmissions monday.. you ask why I left behind work I love? Well, this year has shown me I need to be able to have the skill to do something, something that will always be there(firefighting, I know, but I cant get paid for that, atleast not at this age) And a buddy of my Dads, the same guy that rebuilt the tranny in my DD, brought up to my dad one night at the bar that he only wanted to be rebuilding transmissions, hands on, for another 4 years or so. And he wanted to teach somebody how to do it before those 4 years were up and he wanted me to call him.. So I took advantage of it, only catch, I gotta work for him until 3 months after I graduate..
