There actually is bailing wire fixing the 4x4 shift linkage. There is also a tie down keeping the back corners of the bed from falling off. There may be some "creative wiring" within the truck too but I won't get into that.

I'm a Draftsman for a Millwright company, designing grain elevators, and all the steel and equipment. I am also the Network Administrator, went to school to be an M.C.*.E. (Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer). I make $13.75/ hour, clearing about $28K-$30K, depending on over-time and bonuses.

Alot. 7 books, 6 months. And they're not small books, either. Then, after you pass their tests, you have to go pass Microsoft'* test to be certified. The school doesn't certify ya, Microsoft does. There'* a place here that does the online tests, and they watch ya. Can't cheat...

Yea, I've done that same stuff with Novell and A+, but this sounds like way more work.

I'll break 60 this year. Not sure by how much. Best year was 72. I changed shifts and lost some pay.

Between the taxes, child support, and house, there'* not much left.

With bonus and all the other good stuff I just broke $60 (US) last year.
I make the same if you convert that to Canadian $$. not including 6 weeks vacation, medical, dental and insurance. No bonus this year. That could add another $25 K in a good year. 2000 was a good year. That'* when I bought the Bonne.

I really can't imagine how anyone with a family and teenage kids can afford to live on any less these days. There'* never any left over at the end of the month. Too many damn expenses !!!
Hear hear, I have 2 kids 11 and 6. I make over $50K and the wife does pretty well also and it always seems like we are broke

But there is always money for the cars....

Here I was getting frustrated about how much everyone makes, but I always forget about location. After living in MANY different places, I have found that location is 60% of what you make. For example; what I make in South Dakota would be considered poverty level by California standards. But, here I bought a 2300 sq. ft house on 14 acres, drive a Park Avenue Ultra, a '95 Z28 and have 2 beaters to drive to work. So all in all we are doing okay, and I only make about 27K and my wife makes about 25K a year.
