What Do You Do...

I have seen threads with why people have chosen their handles, who they cache with pet's, people etc... But I have never seen any that ask what you do for a living when your not **Gasp** doing cache related things (I know ~ as if!)

I have seen where people have mentioned being a trucker, working for the gov't etc.. and though how interesting! So here it is your chance to tell us what you do!

Me? I work in a children's Hospital and am going to school for my Registered Nursing Degree. :tired:

 

Thanks for asking!

 

I used to do digital film magic... special effects and stuff. I've worked on many many IMAX films.

Now I use computer/digital techniques to restore old films. I've worked on many famous films, such as Star Wars, Cinderella, Lady and the Tramp, and almost every James Bond film ever made...

 

Many of these films, even fairly recent ones, are in horrible condition. I'm helping to ensure they are around for generations to come...

 

:tired:

I work to support my golf habit, and since last November, I also work to support my geocaching habit, which costs as much or more than golf when I figure in the cost of putting gas in the cachemobile!

 

I work for a small municipality and have been in charge of red tape for the past 31 years :unsure: The plan at the moment is to retire next April, so that I can spend more time pursuing my habits.

After a long and very lucrative career as a top-level distributor in "Alternative Medications" I settled down, got married to a wonderful woman, and went legit. I laugh when my friends ask how I afford my Porsche... If only they knew.

 

I now work in the film industry. I started as a fluffer but have moved up to a few co-starring roles.

Jail Commander and County 911 supervisor. In my spare time I work for the local FD as a volly. When I need a break from being at work, I go pound/bend nails and build houses with my father in law, did it for him for 8 years before getting into being a public slave, I mean servant.

You look a little too anxious to perform that procedure there, John. :huh:

 

Seriously, you guys saved my Mom's life last year (brain aneurysm). Well, maybe not your crew personally, but the guys and gals that do what you do. Got her from Neosho to Springfield in time!

 

BTW, I'm a boring Field Engineer for a large third party computer maintenance provider based in Pa.

Hi Scott,

 

That's one of those tunnel vision times - I was so focused I had no idea pictures were being taken.

 

Glad to here we helped your mom. I fly down South, so it was probably one of the other bases.

 

Keep on caching!

Personal assistant to a investment advisor. Funny, I help him help his clients make money. He gets rewarded by his company who sends on him big trips, like to Italy for the Olympics! Hellloooo, who's back at home minding your office??

 

 

That sounds like my wife's job with Jones . . . :huh:

I now work in the porn industry. I started as a fluffer but have moved up to a few co-starring roles.

 

Why Jim, I never knew...but seriously, co-starring in an adult movie... OKee Dokee, I would've assumed you'd demand to be on top (billing ya knucklehead)

As if it were not obvious from my screenname, I am an attorney.

 

Judging from SueEmAll's name, I am the attorney on the other side. Currently my practice is mostly insurance defense. In a couple of days I'll be moving to a firm where I will only do insurance defense. Based on market share of the insurance company, if you get sued for an auto accident in Utah, there is a significant chance I will be your attorney...

Such a lot of variety! I'm a radiographer--most people will recognize that this has something to do with X-Ray, but we don't radiograph people for medical reasons, but large metal objects (like foundry castings) for Quality Control. It's part of the nondestructive testing field.

My handle has nothing to do with it--it's just the name of a young man in the Bible who fell asleep in church and fell out a window and died. (Yawn)

I started life as an illustrator, then computers ate my job. So on left-brain days I'm a multimedia programmer, and on right-brain days I'm an artiste. Mostly, I watch TV all day and draw pitchers, which is awesome ;) for an engineering company which is often somewhat less than awesome :laughing: for not all that much money because I'm having so much fun which is not awesome at all :laughing:

 

What do you put in the 'pitchers' you draw?

I work for a local farm drainage contractor. We put plastic tile in fields. So I spend alot of time outdoors, in the mud and I mean in the mud sometimes over my head( we can trench down to 7 feet) which means I am dirty,tired and it's late when I get home. I don't go caching nearly as often as I would like.

Paramedic by profession-Bureaucrat by trade- I coordinate all the EMT and Paramedic training for the State of Missouri, plus licensing of services and individuals. And of course other duties as assigned! I'm sure other government workers know that line.

 

Learned years ago I needed a life outside of EMS/Firefighitng, so my old hobby was the Air Force. Took up geocaching after retirement. My geocaching skills are helped by old boy scout training and Air Force survival courses.

 

To paraphrase an old joke, the difference between the Boy Scouts and the Air Force is adult supervision. :laughing:

I service, and install pre-press related hardware & software, and am in color management.

 

Before it all became computerized I serviced and installed process cameras, film & plate processers, and anything pre-press related in the printing industry.

I used to be a full time radio announcer but now I just do it freelance on my computer. I also have a small sewing business that is mainly over the internet, making memory quilts & bears and a draft stopper that I invented. And a couple of times I have charged a fee to design & build websites. So I will be able to go caching on weekdays, then sew all night to make up for it.

 

P.S. :

 

:laughing: I've taught special needs children from poor/deprived backgrounds for 20 years. (Sniff) End violins. Seriously, I love my job. My kids are adorable (well, most of the time) and I get to play Mommy all day and all evening. I love it so much that I went and got National Board Certification.

 

As the mom of a person with autism, I thank you and worship you.

 

Which reminds me - Terrible Too and I are going virtual-caching the next time I get him home for a weekend. He wouldn't like hunting for things, but driving up to something to take a picture, now THAT's right up his alley! So I'll list his vocation too. He builds birdhouses for a living.

I work for Northrop Grumman in the business management office in the PDAS program.

 

My husband is a facilities maintenance manager for a local produce company. If they break it he fixes it.

 

We are both going back to school, me for my bachelor's in Gov't contracting and he for network engineering.

 

Interesting... I work for Morgan Olson which purchased Grumman Olson, which Grumman Olson was one day

called Northrop Grumman. hmmmm.

Retired from U.S. Navy after 30 years. Now Chief of Operations for state emergency management agency. Been in emergency management 11 years and plan on working here another 9 at least and maybe 14 if I am still having fun. I get to travel a bit in the job to conferences and such, and to various areas of the state...so that allows me to get some 'caching in sometimes. But mostly my wife and I 'cache as a team. She is an early childhood development specialist and works at a pre-school with the 4-5 year olds.

I do oracle data base management and GIS/GPS work for the government. Work for the Transportation Cabinet for the state of Kentucky. Have been for about 13 years now. Was pretty interesting but getting burned out looking at roads and roadway data. Pay for the hobby?? Drive older vehicles, stay in the same house for 11 years and just live simply. It allows for extra money for hobbies, charities and vacations.
