    I am a wildland firefighter/emt. DW homeschools our three children. With my job I get to scout out parks and forests, have lots of time off and train my kids to live off the land. We look for educational trips as well. Next year we are planning a trip to the outer banks. This fall- a civil war tour.

    I own my own small business wholesaling and installing paint protection film kits (better known as clear bras) to auto dealerships. I also volunteer my time as an emergency amateur radio operator with the Maricopa County Emergency Communications Group. We respond to calls from state and federal emergency agencies in the event of disasters, "When normal communications go down, our antennas come up" [:D]

    DW is proudly retired from the Active Guard Reserve/Air National Guard with 20 years active duty service and 24 years of total service. She now stays home and raises our 4 children, and shakes her head in wonder about her DH. [:D]

    I have been teaching alternative education students for the last 10 years. Before that I worked in retail banking and investment banking. One day I just decided that the money just wasn't worth the morally questionable things that the companies wanted me to do so I opted for a more morally fulfilling (but way lower paying) career. My wife oversees 12 apartment buildings here in Michigan.

    [:O] You guys all have really awesome jobs, I am self-contracted with local and national banks in my area to carry various things such as inter-office mail, statements, etc etc. The DW is a manager at the local Holiday Inn. She is still in college and i will hopefully be attending soon, so maybe sometime soon we will have amazing careers like you guys!
