    Ummm I am a Journeyman Lineman retired from a utility and now doin work as a contractor ( construction). I have worked UNION all of my life with the exception of 6 months way back in 1975. That six months taught me that Non union work was not for me. I spoze I am on my way out as I am now kinda long in the tooth, But I am gonna do linework until its no longer satisfying or My body hollers uncle. I kinda maybe promote the union cause on here.

    My name is Dave.. I am a 2nd year apprentice with SCE&G based in Bluffton, SC. I grew up in Vero Beach, Fl and before getting into linework I spent 7 years with comcast cable.
    I attended SLTC and then went to work for a rat contractor in Nebraska, where I learned two very invaluable lessons.. a crew full of apprentices do not a safe situation make.. and dont date the chick in the front office.

    Having grown up in So Fla , I am a fan of the Miami Hurricanes, Dolphins.. and the Atlanta Braves ( new addition ). I like putting my camera to work , and catch things and post them on the picture thread here. Also add to that list, fishing, gaming, and traveling of things I like to do.

    This is by far the most challenging job I have ever had.. and not just because of the work , but because of the people I work with. I am though confident I will outlast any problem ( person or object ) I come across here. Even though we do distribution work , I have been up a 110ft river crossing ( which fell over two days later ) to fix lightning damage. And to date have avoided knocking heads with stingy district managers and difficult J-men. Whats next? bring it on
