I currently make my living as a senior IT field tech for a large electric utility but I have worked in general aviation as an avionics tech long ago. As a sidebar I have done some computer programming, including embedded systems programming for a specialized monitor system at work. I take care of my own cars because I am shocked at shop prices.
I currently live in Flagstaff, AZ, where I get to / have to snow cat to mountaintops in winter to fix emergencies at our microwave sites; I have done an emergency repair 55 feet up a tower in zero degree wind chill.
