I hike, usually with the camera gear. While hiking I'm usually thinking of which lines I'd be taking my dirtbikes through if the greene people didn't have such a heavy hand in things.

I am a property caretaker for a local millionaire who owns quite a large business...which also includes a Chrysler/Jeep/Dodge dealership. I typically run his house, farm, and industrial park which are all connected together, occasionally doing work at/for the dealership. Currently doing a mix of running the main property while also doing IT work for the dealership helping them redesign their website. Basically, they know I'm kind of a jack of all trades and they use me wherever they need me...I bring the full meaning to the position known as "Farm Bitch."

I also don't make nearly enough money to keep the Jeep mods flowing...but I'm praying for another raise. lol

Yeah...I just got one earlier this past summer though $2/hr...so I can only hope! I'm wondering if they're gonna offer me the IT job at the dealership since their IT guy is retiring soon. Not sure I really want to take it because I really don't enjoy IT work aside from as a hobby...and I love my current job. But if the IT job includes a big raise and benefits, I can't turn it down either...current job I'm 1099'd with no benefits. Only downfall of the job.

im working on getting benefits myself. for me to be offered benefits i have to work 720 consecutive hours. living in one part of the country and working in another makes it kinda tough to get that many hours built up. part of me also thinks that they are just trying to save some money. you would figure a small multi-million dollar company wouldnt really care about spending the extra money on an employee. once i get pretty close to that 720 hours they send me home

I've been in Rent-To-Own for 14 years. Been with 4 different companies but always the same boss...We finally told the corporate world to kiss our ass in 04 and I now help him run his own company.

I also do a little asset recovery for a local dealership as well as recovery and skip tracing for a local wrecker service.

My life seems pretty boring, especially compared to Ron Jeremy!

I am a Real Estate Investor, mostly rentals, but I do buy and sell when I can. I also work on the family farm spring and fall.

I am like a boomerang in regards to the farm. I love the work and always end up coming back, no matter how busy the rentals are.
