    I was a gearhead for thirty five years. The last five of those thirty five I got burned out with it. I went to work for a grant counter top shop and that went south with alot of other jobs. I didn't wont to go back to wren-chin so I decided to try the other end for a spell.
    6 years in the Army turnin wrenches on everything from a 1/4 ton to 33 tons. If it had tracks or wheels I could fix it. Flow around in Helicopters (air Mobil unit) tried to work on them but they said h&ll no! Got out and worked a few different jobs and went back to wren-chin.

    That's my storie and I'm stickin to it...

    Grew up framing houses, studied economics and business in school, then worked in the restaurant industry for 10 years as a general manager/trainer. Got into trucking almost by accident. Was tired of being responsible for 50 other people so I found a local trucking company that had a small school and in 6 weeks was on the road. 16 years later and I'm still going strong.
