    What's your day job?

    Good morning! I was sitting here this morning and wondering how many other people there are in my line of work, probably not many! I am a welder/ironworker. So what do you guys do to pay your bills and support your hobbies? Do you have any other hobbies? I also enjoy woodworking and I have a phantom drone that I enjoy taking out and flying. Anyway y'all have a nice day

    I'm the Director of Aquatic Sales for Pidaz.

    I also went to school for percussion performance, and used to play in a touring band 6 months out of the year. Drumming takes up a large part of my free time.

    Cavalier AFS. Been there several times. It's part of the old Safeguard Stanley Mickelson missile defense system. It was tied to the intercept radar in Nekoma. They had nuclear tipped intercept missiles. They shut the intercept mission down 40 years ago and gave the warning radar to the Air Force. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Safeguard_Program
