    Just hung out my shingle

    Hello All,
    I'm a 31 year old welder with 10yrs experience in the Alberta Oilfields. I've recently made the decision to quit my job as a Plant Manager to start up my own business. I'll be looking for some technical advice from time to time and will try to help out where I can.

    Good luck on your new venture. One good thing you kanooks have going for you is that you will not need to worry about health insurance while starting your business. As a Plant manager I am sure you have many contacts to leverage from. That is what you need to start the business. I did not start mine until latter in life and my past contacts and work is what has made my business work. If I was 30 and opened up my shop where I am I would have starved to death.

    Not likely, as he has not been back since Nov. 16th 2005.
