Jason, I'm 43, in Gunnison, CO and want to assemble a team. Some Welding, turning wrenches, machine design ,structure, & construction are my best skills. Looking for 2 more members in good health & condition (I am)that want to compete. I have relatives in Chicago and it'd be great to work with and be part of a team there. I was just in Chi-town a week ago helping out relatives with their projects. Galan Rackliffe sounds like a great welder. I'm pretty good with engines and great with structural design. With your skills, Galan's, and my own, we could make a pretty good all around team. Galan probably has some skills with hydraulics depending on his welding experience. I have also owned my shop and trucking company and worked with and supervised various crews. I would bring a good all around practical real experience with all kinds of problem solving. A really good welder is a must and Galan sounds good. I also could bring some nice specialty tools that don't take up much space, but would be invaluable for engines and other situations. I can work a 10 hr day without stopping except for a cup of coffee. I worked 20 hour days in my moving business, in construction, and in my own shop.

Email me if you're interested:
