About: I guess I'm one of the "old" guys on this site. I am the 40. I've got a wife and 2 sons. We live in the country and due to finances have a serious DIY mentality. We homeschooled the kids for years. Last year, my oldest boy moved away (at 17) to become an aviation mechanic. If all goes well, he'll have his A&P certification later this year. My youngest boy decided to give public school a go, but may try to split his education by taking college courses at night. My degree is in Ministry (because I have an overactive conscience). My wifes' degree is in Art (because she thinks poverty is cool). I have worked in the professional protection (private security) industry for over 10 years. I also work with a small non-denominational churche. Before that I was a missionary in the mountains of New Guinea for about 7 years. I speak Melanesian Pidgin (fluently), read Koine Greek (poorly), and stumble through French. I've owned over 40 motorcycles in the last 20 years as well as a few unusual cars,('70 MGB, volcano damaged Mercedes, '85 Vette, '62 Land Rover, '70 VW fastback, etc), but I really want to get my pilots' license and a small plane. My oldest son may be getting one later this year, if the finances are there. I have a history of blowing stuff up, burning stuff down and a few spectacular vehicle mishaps (I ran over myself with the '62 Land Rover). Politically I'm a Constitutionalist/ Libertarian, (ie- votewaster), with a strong opposition to governmental interference in private matters. My Christianity is of the "old school" variety, searching for the best way to apply the teachings (and lifestyle) of Christ in a modern world. Admittedly, it is easier said than done!
