You pay for the fact that "you have a degree" moreso than the actual fact that you learned something.
I am currently working towards a degree in software engineering.

I went to school for 5 months to learn how to work on commercial HVAC systems. I don't have a degree, but after I get out I can make some serious cash.

I first want to thank all military, law enforcement, and firefighters for their service! and I dont care what they drive. Thanks to all!!! Owning my own biz, I have been an automotive restylist for about 20 years. 50/50 split on electronics and full custom interiors. yes, i can sew. when the market took a dump a few years ago, I needed to get a "normal job" and work for the man to make ends meet. I now am a material handler and a sewer for a dock door seal company, and still do my own biz at night and weeekends.

Thumbs up

I'm a Retired USAF NCO (E-7) and currently work with the VA as a Medical Technologist (Clinical Scientist). Been doing this work for over (31) years now. Man! How the time flies! LMAO !

Anyways, I'm "newb" (to gas Dodge). I'm buying a 1998 Dakota tomorrow AM. It'll be a back up truck to stuff around.

I used to own "THE Holy Grail" of Cummins until a leg injury forced me to sell it (couldn't push in the clutch pedal).

Default Retired and enjoying it

I am retired for 12 years, enjoying family and trucks. I had a recruiting business for forty years recruiting and placing Tax Acountants in Maryand and surrounding states. Great business for cash flow. I now ejoy the Golden Years, still chasing my wife and playing with big trucks. I have ten Grandchildren that are a delight to play with and then they go home. I am enjoying my alone years with my wife. She is still a fabulous wife, attractive, loving and caring, and likes trucks too, and we have great memories. She is also a great cook and baker, I am one lucky guy.

I'm a Landscape Designer and Horticulturist, working for 2 contractors, other occasional contractors, and free lance commercial and residential projects.

Been in the business a long time. I spend a lot of time on tree farms, nurseries and construction sites driving a variety of trucks from F350 pickups to F550 contractor bodies and assorted trailers.

I thought the Dakota would be the perfect personal truck for me and a couple of months ago I bought an '01 Sport Club Cab 4.7 4WD. It had sat for a long time and I've been replacing a lot of parts. I found this forum and have been reading as the issues come up, but just registered today and this is my first post.
