    Sales manager of an automotive speed shop. I also try to sell marketing on the side and serve as President of my local Tea Party. With three small kids and a wife I do my best to find any time to ride at all.
    I ride to make me like myself.

    I own a small orthopedic implant distributorship and sell replacement joints(see avatar) and other titanium goodies. The large corporations are my competition, and I'd make alot more money working for them, but I'd lose alot of riding time. Ride hard and take risks!

    Incidentially, I'm surprised I'm the first attorney who has chimed in. There are a number of 'us' regularly on RBR.[/QUOTE]

    my attorney buddy says it's because there's no money in trees and dirt. rbr makes sense.

    Exterminator for 12 years. Still trying to figure out how people get fat doing this job, I usually drop about 15-20 pounds during the season. I spend all day crawling under and climbing on top of houses, drag a hose filled with kill juice and carry extension ladders and backpack sprayers full of juice. Up here we do things very different than the guy you see in a city walking around with a hand sprayer. The houses are huge (because that's all that can afford pest control anymore) and the terrain is often fairly rugged. I also do weed control so you can imagine dragging hose on a 4 acre lawn. Try spending the day in a hot attic in the middle of summer getting rid of bats. We usually do those in early fall but some people want it done NOW and don't want to hear anything about heat exhaustion. 10 to 12 hours a day. I get all the fitness I need from the job, I ride for the fun of it.

    Of course, I usually put on that 15-20 pounds in the winter because I plow snow commercially (not a lot to kill in the winter). Not a lot of physical labor so I need to come up with something to combat that, which is one reason I want to try winter riding this season. It's tough to fit in exercise when you get up at 1 in the morning and plow snow until 2 or 3 the next afternoon and all you want to do is sleep because you know you'll be doing it all over again.

    i work as the shipping and receiving coordinator at a company that builds trade show exhibits, museum displays, office lobbies and retail environments. we also process and mount prints for professional photographers as well.

    general graphics/delphi group builds really cool stuff (like life-size styrofoam redwood tree trunks) for some of our clients and many of the photographs i get to see before and after they're mounted are pretty awesome. the company employs anywhere between 45-60 people at any given time of the year. recently, my company just merged with a smaller exhibit company and we will be moving from san francisco to alameda.

    i've been doing this now for eleven years, enjoy my work and 99.999% of the people i work with.

    during the recent economic downturn the company has been forced to lay me off twice but have always been true to their word and re activated me when business has recovered to the point to where we can have a full staff again. these are the kind of things that inspire loyalty from your employees.

    it's really nice not to work in a corporate environment or be forced to sit at a desk all day long.

    I can't tell if you're really a teacher being very sarcastic or just an idiot that think they knows what a teacher does. Either way, I take offense to this!

    If you're at all involved with the design or production of Sappies or vests, you guys saved my buddy's life last week. Thanks.

    They are indeed. I'm a high school senior but I work in RadOnc as well as a lab assistant. I've set up a couple experiments on them. They're imposing machines! I would imagine being treated by them to be a nerve wracking experience.

    Right now at tech school however I'm studying machining and I will be studying mechatronics engineering in university. Hope to have a job where I can engineer and work hands on with machine tools and other production equipment. I love seeing machines producing things.

    Nice thing about going to school in a machine shop is I can make bike parts! Right now I'm machining some flat pedals to use with boots in the snow, instead of buying them.
