So, what about you?

Here's an interesting idea I got from another forum I am a member of. Let's go around and tell a little bit about ourselves. Truth be told, I'd be interested to know some of the demographics of the site. Here's mine:

- Video games (wish I did more)
- Computers (again, wish I knew more)
- Amateur Audiophile
- Assistant Scoutmaster in the local BSA troop.
- Love the outdoors (don't get to enjoy it enough).

What about you?

I'm Paul from Concord CA. 58 yrs old and I and like to hunt, fish, and camp with my wife in our Teardrop trailer. Have one son who is a sophomore in college in SoCal. Looking at retirement in a 5 or 6 years and cannot wait to get the **** out of California. I hate it here. I make my living managing a BioSkills (cadaver) Surgical Training lab, in San Francisco.

DFW, TX. ERISA Compliance Specialist.

2 kids in diapers. Who has time for hobbies? I guess the closest thing I have to a hobby any more is watching NASCAR.

Enjoy your Outbacks

Brad, Yelm WA, 31. after high school i was a bum living on my friends' couch until i joined the army, as a heavy equipment mechanic, and from which i am medically retired. im now a full time student, married, father of a 2 year old and have a dog that needs to run at least 30 mins a day. i love road racing (NASCRAP makes my blood boil!) and am kinda getting into offroading now. i dont understand why subaru enthusiasts hate the new outbacks/legacies, perfect for my needs...

...hmmm you could add to this by actually placing yourself on our zeemaps map in the following thread.

Frapper Replacement Map and follow the instructions below.

1) Go to the ZeeMaps - Subaru Outback.Org Owner Location link.
2) Click Additions > Add Marker.

4) Click the "preview" button to make sure it looks the way you want.
5) When it's right, click Submit.

Very cool. I put myself through college and university with a part time job as a coroners assistant...assisting autopsies, and doing "removals" from hospitals, homicides, suicides, accidents, and the like in Toronto and Barrie Ont. Canada

It IS interesting work. I'll bet being a coroner's assistant was a fascinating job as well!
