It's 20 times my posts.
That equates to about 4000% more useful information posted.
I for one am glad you are a part of this forum
Hahaha...do you have any idea what sort of punishment I could visit upon you for such an inane question?
I'll give you the short version (sans punishment, since I think your question is genuine):
My life is front-loaded. Hard for a long time. I left home when I was sixteen. Any idea what it's like to sleep under a bridge? Somehow I doubt it.
I worked commercial construction for years. And in an airport fueling and cleaning jets. And in an insulation factory (take a cold shower to wash off the glass fibers, cuz hot just makes em go deeper into your pores). I worked on docks, unloading Turkish tobacco shipments (wear white, so when the black widows jump outta the bales onto you, you'll see em). Basically, a lot of labor-intensive jobs.
I guess that's why I appreciate blue collar peeps. Folks who think sweat is rewarding. And my past is almost certainly why I decided to learn how to build my Jeep, rather than having someone else do it.
As you may or may not be able to imagine, I don't like to cede control to anyone. For any reason.
I drink beer.
I like to fight.
Hate to lose. At anything.
I love my family.
I have a speed jones, which I address with motorcycles.
I hunt (and am really, really good at it...okay, that's a lie).
I love my country.
What else you wanna know?
Currently my life is gravy. I'm self-employed. I take photos for those who are willing to pay me to do so. They send me all over the world. It's pretty awesome, except for the occasional times you get shot at, or have to shoot something that's especially grotesque. But, hey...the camera is an insulator. I'm passionate about what I do, and that passion, I guess, carries over to Jeeps.
Which should answer your original question.
