    Yes I do!!! Chris is a really nice guy. He is in the process of building his R8 right now.

    I got a chance to ride in his GTR before he sold it. That car was absolutely STUPID in the best way possible.

    No I don't. Sounds like someone I would like to know though. I'm 30 years old so that was a generation before me.

    I'm pretty sure he's retired from racing by now, but I do think he still runs a shop down that way. My wife said that if you do happen to run across him somewhere, to tell him Goldilocks from KC says hello.

    Hahaha small world!

    He’s a close friend of mine, great dude. Never got a chance to see the GTR but he sent me a video of it doing a NASTY highway pull. It was shockingly fast.

    He’ll have a fastest ride in the nursing home one day, lol.

    I am a communications tech for a government owned Hydro Electric Company. Yesterday we had to fly in chopper to some of our meteorological (MET) stations to winterize them. Basically they are put in service to monitor precipitation levels and send the data back to our power control center via satellite or cellular service.
    Here is a video of us flying over one of our water reservoirs and a pic of my by the chopper landed by one of the MET stations.

    I got pushed into a corporate career that I hate after college because society told me that was the only way I would be successful.

    How’s that for bringing everybody’s day down?

    Just be glad you’re not a statistic of college grad that didn’t have any type of job placement, career assistance or flat out couldn’t find a career oriented job post grad.

    Some days my job makes me want to punch a hole in the wall but I appreciate it for the opportunities and growth it’s provided.

    Nah, I dropped out of basket weaving and interpretive dance my first semester. I figured business school was a safe choice.
