Thanks for you comments above in regards to my pic! The work you do is great also, the power we make at hydro's would not get far without the ability to travel on its way via buss, transmission and associated equipment!

I am the Non-Ferrous Manager for Sims Metal Management. Never thought I would love scrap like I do...but it is fun especially when you drive an older truck and need some parts, though the dodges are not being scrapped very often....
Due to corporate BS I can post pics of the yard, but will try to post some of the bits and pieces.

Like Bordin, I work underground as well, for the worlds 2nd largest mining company (they were largest not too long ago) I am a 3rd level HD mechanic apprentice and am currently 30 hours from home working in a small mining town in Northern Mantioba, I am in a big shop at the 3600' level of one of the mines. I love working underground and it is quite different from what you would see on tv or the news. Heres a few pics of the million dollar stuff I get to mess with. These were taken at a different mine 1 year ago but the machines are the same and the shop underground is a bout the same as my current one
30 ton rock truck, just a baby compared to the 45 tons I am working on this year

8 yard scoop

2 boom atlas copco jumbo, used for drilling the face that will then be set for a blast

me

rock bolter, used for doing what the miner and the drill in one of bordins pics is doing...

I don't like to tell too many people what I do because not too many people like going to the dentist! I'm not a dentist but I work for one as a dental hygienist, in other words I clean people's teeth. Come to think of it not too many people like me either!! Guess you could call me "The Mistress of PAIN"! Bwhahahaha!!

I drive a truck for a living, flatbed, I love it...kinda LOL...Heres pics, I blacked out anything that gives the company away because they are not my truck to display...Although a couple people on here should know who they are. I run a dedicated route. I pick up in Natchitoches, LA every afternoon (mainly) and deliver in either Dallas or Houston every MORNING, normally around 8am, yay for me LOL
Its pretty nice, I get home 4 out of 5 nights a week, and home every weekend

This is my everyday truck


I had this truck for a couple months, it was nice, and fast LOL..But now Im back to the first truck

Nowhere as of today. I got a text last night and my boss told me to take the day off.

Tonight I got one telling me I could pick up my tools and my check after 2:00 tomorrow.

I always said he was a coward and he couldn't even let me go to my face. He's been through about 200 employees in 8 years and it's a small shop. Some day he'll figure out that it's not the 200 employees that (201) weren't a-holes.

I seem to remember a couple people that recently met their demise via the US government that thought they were okay and the world was messed up. I'm pretty sure something along that line will be my parting shot tomorrow.

...sure and Binladen/Saddam Hussein thought he was okay and the world was messed up...and we know what happened to him...
