Like most folks, I complain too much. it was time for a guys day.  Sometimes my job is pretty cool. Like guys day. I got to spend the morning with a dude who has 40+ years in off road racing, NASCAR, and others. Builds some wicked stuff. Not a big household name but a solid dude who I thoroughly enjoyed meeting. Raced against likes of Rod Hall as his passion was off road. He mostly made his name in the custom exhaust world. Weird part is he is getting old. OK, that is not weird.

He wants to hire a kid with some gumption, a good work ethic, and a bit of fire to take it all over. Can’t find anybody. So, if anybody knows a twenty something that can add, subtract, read a tape measure, and has a desire to learn custom fab work, and take over a business, you let me know. Now generally I keep my meetings confidential and never use names. I don’t think he will mind. Some of his wicked shit can be found here. Good start to guys day.

The kicker? I got paid to drive to his beautiful home, (Not pictured, but picturesque overlooking all of the valley like a Victorian cottage. ) shop, man cave, meet a really interesting dude, and heard war stories. Did I mention I got paid to do it? Yea, sometimes the job does not suck.

To add to the fun, I took Hoodlum. He has been needing something of late. So we went for “guys day.” This is the adventure from his point of view:

Dog: This place is cool. He has like 40 acres here and lots of places to sniff.
Me: Yea, nice guy too.
Dog: You should have done something with your life. He was way more intresting than you.

Dog: Seriously, his shop is bigger than our house.
Me: Yea, it is nice.
Dog: Can I pee over there?
Me: NO.
