    The canopy is the best part.
    I currently am on disability working retail to bring in some extra, easy exempt income. Being that I work in a store dedicated to the great outdoors and hiking I have access to discount and we're encouraged to take lots of time off to explore the area, test product, and find places to recommend to our customers. I've started the preliminary steps of starting my long-time dream of having a photography business. BC has some really excellent resources and programs dedicated to helping people with disabilities start up and maintain their businesses.

    I would like to go back to school within the next three years for automotive tech but the school in town is not a good fit for me, so once we move south I'll look into enrolling at the university down there.

    Switched jobs last year (coming up on my 1year anniversary at the new company). Was a Project Manager for a DoD service company managing a contract to build full equipment-rack communications systems for the Navy. I now work for General Atomics as a Cybersecurity Engineer. They manufacture the Unmanned Aircraft Vehicles you may or may not have read about in the news.

    You could be making a ton right now in Pennsylvania. They canceled the Motorcycle safety program and people are looking for other avenues.

    I should have retired 4 years ago but each year I get 2% more of my salary for each year I stay. That's 34 years or 68% so far. I work for the government for a certain technology security agency. Maybe next year I'll go to relieve the incredible stress.

    I was joking, bro. Callahan Auto is a fictional brake pad company on the movie Tommy Boy with Chris Farley and David Spade. It's hilarious! You should check it out.
