Talking One more Truck Tech

I work as a Lead Truck Technician for the United States Post Office,
Been earning a living repairing automotive products since 1977,
Got my first "Gently Abused" Metro in 1997,
Re-Built and sold over a hundred cars, and a few trucks,
Learned about P&G in 1999, They didn't call it that then though.
Benn stretching Gas Dollars ever since.

Do you do HAM stuff? I'm very much a rookie at Amateur Radio. Current equipment 2M/440 Icom HT and a ~75W Kenwood mobile unit with mag-mount. I can generally hit a repeater with the mobile.

Rally Racing is a big hobby -- got me into HAM, then into Storm Spotting and local ARES groups.

Right now, HF is a bit out of my price range and skill level

Landscape architect here. It's the job of a landscape architect to know a little of everything - engineering, architecture, horticulture, planning and people skills. Yeah - gotta work on that last one ^_^

I have a knack for efficiency... make the most with what you've got. For those who didn't read it - I was the dum-dum asking what a 8.0L V-10 Dodge Ram 2500 4x4 would yield if modded. But that would be too easy! Blue07CivicEX's results give me renewed hope to reach 50 mpg in my 07 (Alabaster Silver, manual) Civic EX sedan. Must try more P&G, now that I've read about the "gentle way" to restart the engine.

OMG, look at all the engineers! I couldn't help but think about today's Dilbert:





I'm an aircraft technician who somehow got lured into environmental engineering. I'm still not sure how that happened.

I guess that the "Modder" part of "ecomodder" attracts all the tech people and scares away all the veterinarians...

Best mod I've done since I found this place was adjusting the nut behind the wheel. 37mpg... I can almost taste it. The veterinarians will come around in due time...
