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 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.

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
