Default One for the boring guys out there.....

So this is one for all of us that do everyday jobs and don't do cool things like what Steve has just posted.

This is me as BPM Visions National Sales Manager, I travel around Australia talking to people about Software.

I like working with technology, its why Avaiation is so cool.

Just an everyday guy doing his thing

Default Day Job

This is an infrared image of an exo-atmospheric kill vehicle intercepting and destroying a target simulating a re-entry vehicle. This may be the most worthwhile job I've ever done.

Well let's see. I own an RV trailer & motorhome dealership in eastern Quebec. I also own a private 930 acres estate with my father, on which we operate an outfiting company specialized in trout fishing all inclusive 4* plans. We have 5 private lakes, 15 km of trails and a 2km sea frontage with a private beach to play with. It's located in eastern Quebec also, in the Apalachian mountains, and it's skirted by the St-Lawrence river.

I'm an ultralight and experimental enthusiast - builder of a Challenger ultra light and owner of a 2010 RV-6A. Right now, I've been working on a private airstrip at the estate, so we can acomodate pilot who'd like to come and visit us! ...And it's for me too!! My 40 X 28 hangar is now completed on the side of the strip. Still about a year to go before an aircraft will land on it.
