I like working on & restoring cars & trucks. I am currently restoring 1962 Chevy K-10 stepside pickup with factory original 4 wheel drive. I plan to build a clone of 1967 Shelby Mustang Eleanor from movie Gone in 60 seconds.
I like aircraft. Someday hope to get a pilot's license & also build the first Mach2 capable business jet.
Welder/Small Business owner.
Why I Joined Fire/EMS
I first decided to join for the adventure and excitement. Also to help people in the community. I had seen firefighters working at my own house two different times when I was a kid, and decided it looked like something that would be worthwhile to do.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
It is an adventure, & to help people in trouble.
