    Just wanted fellow BC'ers to share a little bit about themselves. I mean, when some people post they talk about how it is where they are, but never say where "there" is. Give us a little more info so we know who you are and where you're coming from. Don't need to get too personal. I mean I'm comfortable to tell you that I live in Port St. Lucie, Florida. You can say your state or the quadrant of the state you live in. Same goes with age, length of time on the job, current job, i.e. preload, driver, feeders or supe. Just a little more info like would really be helpful. If you don't want to participate don't, it's okay.

    I'll start first and feel free to follow with all or as much info as you like.

    Name: Rod Brown, AKA The Brown Rod
    Start Date: A few years to late, this is my 2nd career
    Sex: M 30 something
    From: Pacific NW
    Unmarried: No children (Very few bills, Lots of money to play with)
    UPS position: Driver

    I became a UPSER while in college. It was suggested to me that I go to work for UPS back when I was 18 and I sure wish I did. Instead I farted around in another career that made good money but was unfulfilling. I'm one of the few who actually like being a package driver. But when I'm able to go feeder I'm so there. I want that big 60 hour per week feeder pay. I don't think my body will make it to retirement if I work 60 hours per week in package for the next 20 years.
