I'll kick in here.
My legs refuse to let me be on a crew, or run a crew anymore, I miss that more than most guys can understand, so I'm constrained to supervision and more a "Chair Bound Ranger" than I ever wanted to be....... BUT

I do really enjoy working on generators, just not the 80 hours a week the guys normally work on them, but I could do that for a living. That's kinda 'lectric related though.

When I was an apprentice, I fell in with a surveyor that wanted to teach me the trade. He got a job in Alaska on the pipeline and I finished my apprenticeship in the meantime, so when he came back, I really could not afford the cut in pay, but I still would really love to be a surveyor.

Can't really think of another blooming thing that would float my boat.

I'll throw this in...
After doing an inspection at a new 'Benz service center, I think in my next life a 'Benz technician would be a great job!

Those guys have a carpeted lokker room, excersize room, knock-out restroom & shower area, and a really NICE place to work in.
(Puts the 'Beemer service center to shame.)

Now, the client area is plush, heck they did the restrooms in granite & cherry WOOD.

I have turned down management a few times, I don't feel I am the type.
Design and planning would be nice.
I will probably not get an engineering degree until I retire 'from the tools', but I wouldn't mind working for one.
With experience in the final product, I feel I would be an asset.
Schematics and trouble shooting are where I am at my best.

I think if I had it to do over I would've gone pre-med in college instead of business and become a surgeon.

I plan on getting a private pilots license for pleasure, I'm going to start that sometime soon, but I don't want to fly for a living, just fun.

If I were single, a hunting guide would be a pretty awesome job. But I am not and cherish my time with my wife and kids.so I just put in an application for an electrical inspector for Harris County.I live and breathe electricity
