    I deliver furniture. Doesn't do well for biking at all. As my job breaks your body down. There's just no way around it. However, since starting this mtb thing, I've noticed I have less trouble breathing while carrying heavy stuff up stairs! Dressers, and dual reclining sofas. Rest of body is still pretty well shot though.

    Army officer. In charge of a small group of awesome soldiers who are trained in chemical warfare agent detection and decontamination. I get to ride pretty much every weekend that I'm not working.

    It seems the only real trend among us is that we all love to mountain bike.

    I work part time as a Pressman at a small Union shop, and I also have a part time job at a State Psychiatric Hospital. Good pay, good health coverage. I had to quit my dream job at a
    LBS for the State job though.

    Professional Pyromaniac. Yes, really! I get paid to set stuff on fire. I'm a Test Engineer, and the lab where I work does flammability testing for the furniture and bedding industries. All very controlled of course, but I get to let out my inner pyro a couple of times a week.

    I'm a GIS Specialist for a civil engineering firm. We're focused on water/wastewater and its pretty old at this point. I've been at the same place nearly 7 years. I think of a career change all the time, just not sure what I would find enjoyable. Plus its a bit of an odd time to walk away from a stable gig.

    I've been on plenty of jobs popping manholes and taking downs for large surveys. The first day is a welcome change from cubicle life but when you're popping a surcharged MH at 3 pm on a mid-August day on a busy street the office doesn't seem so bad. But all in all I think I'd be more happy if I were outside, even if it was watching turds float by.

    Thought about going to school to become an LS in NJ but there are no jobs right now. I get to do large scale RTK surveys on occasion and I like it but I just cant bring myself to pull the trigger on 2+ years of classes during full time work, then having to go through licensing process. I'll be 35+ by that time and who knows what the surveyor job market will be then.

    I don't work directly for Cisco, but I've taught classes out of the Richardson/Plano office, I was just there last week actually. Cisco is a good company. They expect a lot but generally take care of their employees. They're still the 800 lb gorilla, so if you know their stuff you're employable by default.
