I work in the metal recycling industry. My location primarily deals with the general public, about 600 walk/drive up customers a per day. I get a real sense of joy knowing what I do has a direct impact on the waterways we all fish.

Mining Engineer/Geologist. Currently own my own business specializing in explosives engineering.

I've spent the last twenty years stripping, drilling, fracking, and blasting all over the globe. Environmentalists despise me, but they love their SUVs, 6000 sq. ft. houses, lighting up their place like it's Yankee Stadium, and having three other cars in their driveway. Go figure.

"If you can't grow it- you gotta mine it."

I am an Engineering Superivisor for a group developing hydrostatic power trains for construction equipment. I have been working designing construction equipment for 30 years. Currently for the world's largest equipment manufacturer, but also worked for one better known for their green equipment.

Hopefully retiring soon and have toyed with the idea of opening a small machine shop for custom work and maybe turning out some custom fly reels. Would not mind investing in a micro-brew to support my other vice.

I'll bet we have crossed paths. I was a senior engineer for Caterpillar in the Global Mining Group. I still do work with them. We were the ones who started using GPS for machine guidance. That was a great project to work on.
