Hi everyone, sorry for committing the faux pas of reviving a very old thread - there's just so much history here. Just wondering if any of the original old-timer posters in this thread are still around and what's going on with them all.

Well since you asked... I'm a level 2 truck and coach apprentice at the moment. Living in North Bay and working in Kitchener area.

I'll add a few more details. After working with Giles I worked for myself doing handman repairs. Then I got involved (volunteering) with a Christian ministry that did a lot of work in Israel. That lead to another volunteer position with a different ministry in the filming/editing department. Through that, I became good friends with a fellow who would later become my brother in law. I married an American and the whole Green Card process was dragging on so we switched gears and my wife is now a Permanent Resident in Canada. Volunteering wasn't paying the bills with 1 kiddo and 1 on the way so I applied for a job as an apprentice at Mack dealership. I wasn't expecting to get hired since I knew almost nothing about trucks but they gave me a chance. Turns out it's a pretty in demand field. It also turns out that I chose an excellent company to work for an have been with them for 3 years. I moved 4.5 hours away from the shop but still commute down there to work. Kind of crazy but it my schedule gives me a lot of free time for side work and time with my family.

Here's a couple videos I was involved with.
