Im a Mechanical Tradesperson (Fitter & Turner) with a pilots licence that I never used to get paid. Work for a large mining company who turn big rocks into smaller ones. Just scored a new roster. 8 days on 20 days off so will finally have more time to ride our deteriorating road network  :305: :001:

I'm an ex tradie ( plumber/gas fitter) who also used to work in the mining industry ( on an equal time roster though, not that cushie 8/20 gig you have LTRRTL LOL). I did that for a decade.

Got out of that 3 years ago for family reasons. After a 12 month stint stint working on the construction of the new local hospital, I pulled the pin and got my teaching degree, finishing that in July this year.

I am now working as a ITD Teacher, teaching kids how to do metalwork/woodwork/design/graphics, etc. Nothing funnier than trying to teach a class of 12YOs with crap fine motor skills how to use a chisel and a hammer!

Oh, I also managed to complete a Science Degree prior to the mining stint, but have never used it to earn an income.

I work as an airline pilot, the good thing about airplanes is that they lean to turn.

All my family object I am riding a crazy speed machine, my mom even want to break my legs when she know I buy a Liter displacement moto-bike, even a scooter is dangerous for them!

My parents said the same to me when i was 18... 18yrs later they still have the same opinion, parents are wise but you need to enjoy your life how you want to, even if that means blasting down the road on your S1000r!
