    What does a field designer for the Utility Co Do?? I am visioning he designs how each power plant will be set up/used but I am probably way off.

    Let me know...Thanks Mr anderson.


    Cheers!
    Field designer is just his title, I guess it's for the pay raise from technician. He's been there for 30 years, and won an award that goes to only 5 people out of over 10,000 employees. He has a lot of respect within the organization, so they gave him a better title.

    But what he really does is correct the mistakes that Field designers and engineers make.

    What a great idea for a thread.

    My dad is a Custom Butcher.

    He has one of the few custom meat shops left in the United States were you can have the Butcher come to the field and butcher the animal, bring it to his shop, process the meat the way you want it.

    He specializes in all aspects of preparation to include specialty items such as smoked/cured sausages, hams, beef sticks etc.

    Needless to say I grew up in that environment and still mess with preparing the animals I harvest during hunting seasons (i.e. Deer/Turkey/Beer) into the same types of products.

    If you ever find yourself in Northome Mn, stop in and Say hi to Mal and Donna (My Parents).
    They always have some sort of specialty treat ready for a taste test.
    Man, they are WAY up there, aren't they?
    I didn't realize you grew up on the range.

    Very cool thread!
    My father is one of my heroes, as corny as that sounds, so I enjoy talking about him. And from what I have read, there are some others here whose fathers have had pretty interesting lives too.

    My old man was a Green Beret in Vietnam - part of Mike Force.
    There is a book out by the same name written about his unit that talks about him several times.

    After the service he became a police officer in Alexandria for 10+ years.
    When we moved to the Twin Cities he worked in corrections until he retired.

    Now he is retired, but still works some odd jobs to keep from getting bored.
    Whats the name of the book?
    I have read many Special Forces books from the Vietnam era.

    According to my father, one of the few books he has read that was very accurate about his experience there.
