Talking IT's JEEPing time...........

............. after 43-yrs with the company, I walked out of the plant for the last time at 9:00am today, to start my RETIREMENT

Just put my "RETIRED" window decal on the rear-window

Man it feels good and with Spring around the corner, it's Mtn Trail time

What did I do? 43-yrs with the only Company in the US, providing Nuclear Power for the US Navy! Last 15-yrs as a Procurement Eng

The stress of woring in the Defense Nuclear Power Industry, cannot be measured

Now, I'm free, to enjoy the GREAT Outdoors, especially the Mtn's which I have loved all my life~

Thanks folks

Would that be B&W or Areva? I've been trying to get on at B&W for two years! ... I'm happy for you and your retirement, I will be looking for your Jeep in the area!
