NowhereFast - I've always been curious about those ice/water vending machines. Are they expensive and are they worth the investment?

I love concrete. I used to have a mobile mix concrete truck. CONCRETE IS THE BOMB!

It's great to see this thread brought back to life with the folks who frequent it now.

Right out of high school I enlisted in the Navy and spent 6 years in advanced aviation electronics. Once out of the Navy I became a police officer and flew helicopters for the next 20 years. After I retired from the police force I went to work for Compaq computers and served as a hardware/software engineer, network administrator, and project manager. I'm going to retire in one more year and live full time in my bus and travel the US enjoying life.

Getting paid to fly helicopters. How badass is that.

Thanks Cal, I have to admit it was the best job I've ever had. But to be totally honest it was hours and hours of sheer boredom interspersed by moments of sheer terror while flying......lol.

THis thread has been so informative! I thought you were like 25 or something. IDK why.

What I havent retired from is the coffee industry where I am a roaster of coffee. "Do you have a website?" Well, I'm glad you asked; For The Love Of Petes

We are also managing a couple remote properties in the wilds of Montana. One of which is for sale, should you need a place to park your bus: For Sale
Coffee!!! I have really gotten into coffee in the last 5 years.. while I dont roast my own, I buy many different kinds of beans and do a lot of experimentation with pulling espresso shots.. (im most into espresso).. and aero-press, I dont do much drip ..

lucky for me I live in a city which has really become a Coffee-destination..

keep the caffeine flowing!!

sounds pretty exciting to me!! but then I have trouble getting a chopper off the ground... at least it always feel like a tense few seconds until I get it pointed forward and some airspeed... oh then I gotta land.. yeah it gets real exciting .. and im sure the instructor I had when I took a few lessons had more patience than anyone I know as he let me spin around in circles and finally land the thing rather than take over...

fun stuff!!

I love to fly...but I just don't trust any airplane that has wings that go round & round (Sorry Flyboy)

I'll take a little Pitts S1A any day!
