What pays your bills?

Talk about anything that floats your boat (no pun intended). This is general talk about anything not related to boating/fishing.

What pays your bills?

Not sure if this topic has gone around before, but if it has, sorry I'm going to start it again. How are your boat projects funded? What is your line of work?

I am an environmental scientist working for a lake management company. We manage lakes and ponds of all sizes from farm ponds to HOAs to commercial properties. We cover 7 states and their are only 15 people in the entire company, 10 of us are field workers. Its not the best job in the world and I'm always looking, but for now it pays the bills and is allowing my to buy my first house at 24 years old.

I'm a certified public accountant (CPA) working with small business' tax and accounting needs in the Milwaukee/Waukesha area - we do everything from bookkeeping, payroll, financial reports, taxes and audits. I work my rear off in the first 5 months of the year, but get to go fishing / hunting in the summer and fall. About the time all the fishing and hunting is over, it's back to tax season.

I traveled the world in the U.S. Navy now I travel the States and Canada as a over the road semi truck driver, This has allowed me the fun of fishing in many states during time off. So if you see a semi parked at your marinia or near your lake it could be me enjoying some fishing. I'm always searching for truck friendly marinas to park my truck to rent a boat or get access to fish.

I am a GSE(ground support equipment) mechanic/fuel farm maintenance head mechanic for the Charleston International Airport. I work on the fuel trucks that deliver the fuel to the aircraft. I also work the fuel farm. Before I went to work at the airport I drove trucks for twenty years. I have over two million miles under my belt and have been to all lower forty eight states and Canada. I had to get away from driving. It was starting to get to me. I have been working at the airport since January 2001.

I've worked for a telecommunications cabling company for 18 yrs. now. Currently I'm an onsite tech for a large minning shovel company in Milwaukee. My tasks vary from installing cabling in the offices, as well as out in the shops with a lift. I also move all the computers and phones when they decide to play musical chairs. Right now I'm tearing out a ton of old cabling from one of their facilities so they can paint it and make it look pretty. I met my girlfriend while working there, and we just bought a house together. :)
