Moved to Alberta, took a new job

Post  Forgetful on Sat Aug 23, 2014 3:07 pm

I am now living in Red Deer, working at a small shop that specializes in sharpening. My cousin got me on board and it looks like a good long term opportunity. I just finished up the first week of work and things are going well so far. It's a hell of a lot to take in, but the owners are good at what they do, good a teaching it and patient. They tell me I've learned more in the first week than most, so things are looking up. I'm staying with my cousin and his girlfriend, so I don't have my rig, but I'm going to make a trip back to BC soon to get some larger furniture, including my rig.

I'm really looking forward to getting involved with the local autocross club that meets twice a month at a local park. Look out GT Academy 2015!

Glad to hear things are looking good for ya Mr. F.  Hope the new position treats you well. Sounds like you could be dreaming of included angles and micro bevels for some time now.  But most importantly, I'm excited to hear you are looking into the local autocross.  Traffic cones in the area are undoubtedly already shaking in fear Laughing

Sounds like an exciting new change. I am now back at Marathon Coach Corp., building 2 to 3 million dollar Motorcoaches for alll sorts of cool clients. The next one off the production line is a new one for Toyota's M Motorsports. I saw one hit the line 2 weeks ago for the Winterhawks. Sounds like maybe a Hockey Team? I am in the 
Exterior Pint Division doing Composites, Bodywork, Service Repairs and some Painting. I've been back since January 17, 2014, and get all my 18 years of seniority back on January 17. 2015.

Nice that you were able to get back to doing what you love Swerv. And only one year to get back your 18 years of seniority sounds like a deal.

Best Prevost mod I've seen in person recentlyish was at the track. All the teams karts, tools, etc were on some pretty trick slide out racks down in the luggage compartments. I'll be sure to contact you gents when I'm ready to spec my own.

Glad to hear it's going well for you.

I'm settled in pretty well here. The job is going great. I've already learned a whole lot about surface grinding and sharpening, the boss is very pleased with my progress and most importantly I'm enjoying what I'm doing.

I'm living with my cousin and his girlfriend who just had a beautiful baby girl this past Sunday, their first. Abby Mae is 8lbs 4oz, happy and healthy.
