I worked at a autobody for 2 years, best job i have ever had yet. Also, the autobody shop was right next to a mechanic shop. I got great advice. Also did a few mechanics classes in school.
Go for it!
Wots the problem with girls doing boys stuff and boys doing girls stuff?
Go for it and enjoy!
Obvious that none of the males in my family had to do much climbing. Army houses are crap, the food is crap, the life is crap and the only decent thing is the pensions. They ship you around the world to live in even crapper places-you don't mingle with any of the foreigners much, due to the English army villages set up-really a man-made village replicating England in another country. The army life was absolutly appauling-the government is just desperate for forces so they make it look wonderful. Blackhawk I have first hand knowledge-I've lived it.
Partially true though I am not going into the army-not all army areas are the same-the house we got to live in was an absolute scum hole and probably the best of the bunch considering the others-but I think that's something you should take into consideration-if you join would you want your family to be a part of it. For one person it's fine you can take care of yourself, same with the money and stretching it. They have spare money because everything else is catered for-so they wouldn't need much. I remember going to Munster to live in the army barracks there with about 5/6 other families-they said they weren't aware families were coming and we had to stay in the training hall for about 2 weeks-it was hell and that is only the beginning. I just think it is fair that both sides are the story are put forth. However it has been seven years since my dad left-so things may have got better.
