Default Where Do You Work???

So where do you work? What do you do?

I work in Portland, Oregon at the Corporate Office, affectionately known as the "Puzzle Palace". I am the Director of Project Management for an electric utility in the Hydro Resources department. We have 58 hydroelectric generating stations across 5 Western states.

A few pics from my office:







Fortunately, I have the opportunity once in a great while to get out to our operational sites. Since I work for an electric utility on the Hydro side, I get to go to some very pretty spots. Here's a few pics:













So what about you? Tell us about your job and where you work. Got pics? Post them UP!!!

My story ? I just bought my Ram 2500 diesel quad ,full wheel base to tow my 5th wheel..I want to complete the bling before posting my pic. It's red ,with full length nerf bars,capped door handles,bed rail covers,hang over tool box,all alum.diamond plate. Ordered and awaiting delievery ,HID dual beam headlights,Dodge logo mud flaps,chrome bug deflector ,Dodge logo front plate,Mirror caps, running lights bumper mounted and a tonneau cover to hide the 5th wheel hitch already installed ..Pretty much the same equip. I've installed on my Nitro R/T which is posted in the gallery on the Nitro Forum under the same screen name Florida Roadie.. The stuff ordered should be here before Christmas.. A day or two to install and I should be good to go ..I contemplated mounting a Ram head on the hood but fear some A hole will try to steal it and damage the hood.

A 34' Chapparal complete with propane Gen set . Just bought it as well.. Like you said earlier " Great time to buy " ... The Ram is not new ...It's an 03 but Other than the typical cracked dash it's a cream puff. Changed out all fluids but that's it ..I did replace a cracked right side fog light .
I'm very happy with the purchase .
Thanks .

Dry weight is 8800 ...I'll try to keep it under 10,500 loaded .. I did put $$$ down on a 3500 04 dually but Sensed the tranny was on it's way out and @ $ 3000.00 to repair I went for the 2500 that was very clean.. It's been here in Florida since day one and unless a hurricane ,tornado or a snow bird gets it ,it usually stays clean .

Good idea. The 2500 can handle 10,500 easily without strain.

I am currently employed by the US government at the Norfolk Naval Shipyard in Portsmouth, VA.

I am qualified to fill the position of inside machinist, outside machinist but currently I am a Calibration Technician. If I show you guys pictures, I would have to hunt you down and kill you. Don't feel like killing anybody, so no pictures. j/k people. LOL
