    I was an Ironworker for 36 years. Pay was good with a Pension. I was always lucky enough to stay working which is not always the case for Tradesmen. I worked as much overtime as I could find over the years and saved as much as I could. I missed lots of hunting seasons due to my job, but it paid well enough for me to purchase a nice farm in Wisconsin and retire at age 55.

    Yes, I am on those boats.
    Actually I was on the boat in one of the pictures.
    It is actually a lot tougher watching my crew from the beach than it is driving them.

    im a lineman in south dakota and if i had to do it all over again i would do the same thing. Go to michell sd for line school for 9 months and find a job. pay is excellent. you might have to go somewhere u dont want to live right away and get experience and then pick an area u want to go. right now with the company i work with they are doing a lot of hiring out west because of the oil field. if you have any questions pm me.

    Seriously your advice is very wise and profound.
    In our case we compliment each other, I spend freely and she does her best to say no, while maintaining the lifestyle we have without me breaking us. Unfortunately we are each too extreme in our role, but it works.

    And so not to get completely off topic……. I have arguably the best job in the world which I will retire from in a little more than a year. I have a couple of pics of my "office" in the profile.
    Great pics and I think you will love the postman when he brings that check every month!! You have def earned it!

    UH, I didn't know you had been a pastor - that's very cool. I went to seminary, not to become a pastor but because I love to learn. I t was one of the best things I ever did and I use what I learned to teach an adult class at our church, not sure how many years now but at least 12.

    Not many people can look down the road and see exactly what their life will be like and how you handle suffering says a lot about who you are. My hat's off to people who don't walk away, who tough it out and do the best they can with God's help. God bless you. I'm glad to know some of your story.

    Woodtick, what are you studying?

    I spent eight years in the finance industry, then left to start a backpack company. Now I run that and do some work as a buyer at a hunting and outdoor store.

    Cattle grazing on pasture forages in comparison to feedlot Cattle. We're looking at the difference in weight in correlation to the Greenhouse Gas Emissions output. Very interesting project, my other studies have consisted of new varieties of Alfalfa, Birdsfoot Trefoil, Cicer Milkvetch and Meadow Brome as pasture forages in Organic Dairy settings and on small scale Beef operations.
