Thanks to all you guys for your support. I took this job going back 6 bucks an hour on pay. One was flat rate, the 6 bucks and hour less was hourly. It pays time and a half though and a flat rate bonus for hours turned above clock time. Insurance paid, far less miles to work so less gas, maintenance, and wear and tear on vehicle. It eliminated some of the star case, technical assistance, photos of a zillion things to prove it is broken and *******s that want to argue all of your documentation to get a warranty job approved by the factory. For instance: I just sent you a photo requesting a new transmission on a 2020 1500 Ram of all the metal in the pan. This thing did not make any shift right, especially when cold. You made me look at video links, search this and search that and deny the claim for a transmission. Then upload and download and sideload all sorts of scan data, etc. to tell me that a valve body was what is recommended. So Ok. Do I have the authorization. NOPE. You have to submit a labor claim with part numbers and prices for the claim...... Are you kidding me????? YOU ARE THE FACTORY.... YOU KNOW HOW MUCH YOU CAN PAY FOR THIS JOB!
In the end though. I was able to do the math and we are further along in life and take a risk on a job that may be uncertain but I don't see how. It has been awesome.

I too took what some would view as a big gamble when I uprooted from San Diego, basically left everything behind, and started from scratch out east.
It proved to be the best decision I've ever made.

|mark1305||Congrats on the new job Boojo. Sadly there aren't enough skilled folks like you to go around, but I still have one or two in this area I can go to. So few young people are interested or motivated to actually learn stuff they can't look up on the computer screen. I've said it before, but growing up in GA in the 50s-70s (took me a while) if a young person wanted something they found it, fixed it up, or did without.|

Boojo, my congratulations. I'm glad you found a great position!
My dad grew up dirt poor, and he's eaten just about anything. Even skunk.
Well, to be truthful, they never actually ate the skunk. They soaked it in lye for a week and it still stunk like crazy so they threw it out. But they were GOING to eat it.
He says dog is pretty good barbecued.
The only other hogs I've personally shot looked even worse than this one.
I'm not eating that. Looks diseased.

|Boojo35||BTW, I am proud to say that I took what seemed like a chance for me on my new job. A month and and a half in and I am the new service Mgr. I had faith that it all would work out. I really think I found my last job to retirement and the perfect scenario.....|

|Boojo35||During one of our deer camps in the Northern Michigan woods when we were young and dumb (as opposed to old and dumb) we harvested a porcupine. Heard it was a delicacy and fantastic meat. Needless to say it required alcohol when we got back to camp to process the animal and prepare it for cooking on our open fire. Porky quills are a b!tch btw and very difficult for the novice to process. We were about 10 sheets to the wind by the time it was ready we were just salivating for this delicacy....... It was the most disgusting meat ever. Bar none....|

I've never been crazy about wild hog's gamey taste, but then none of them may have been small enough to be tasty. We are totally overrun by hogs in this part of FL. I once worked on the refurbishment of the launch pad for the Delta 4 rockets and at the end of the night shift the actual launch pad would be swarming with sows and shoats. And hogs are one of the few nuisance animals that can be taken any time of the year down here with no limit. The sausage/brat idea sounds like a good one because I do like pork.
On a side note, a researcher here did some experiments regarding the different head and snout shapes between feral hogs and domestic ones. A domestic hog put into a feral environment as a young animal actually changes the shape of its skull due to the different ways of rooting for food. I want to remember that he did the reverse process as well and had young feral hogs grow up looking much more domesticated.
That was a nice big boar, too.

I have a friend. Wether it’s trapped or he (legally) shoots it, he eats it. Fox, beaver, coyote, fisher. Beaver stew isn’t bad but I want to vomit just thinking about eating a coyote or a fox. Yuck
Wild boar sounds delicious though
