Right now, I'm a full time student at UW-La Crosse, but I have a part-time job at Culver's here in La Crosse, and I work fulltime during the summer at Taco Bell in my hometown.

I'm a auto mechanic most of the time - but I also buy, fix up and resell houses... That's where the money is!
Craigs list can be a source of PB income too - Bought a Atlas lathe for 125 cleaned it up and took pictures - resold it on CL for 450. Bought a B18b1 with upgrades parted the upgrades and resold the engine made 400 on that. Those are just two of the many examples, now get to buying! Smile

PostPosted: Thu Apr 08, 2010 3:43 pm    Post subject: Re: how do you fund your paintballing?

Through a series of lucky circumstances I now work as a fisheries technician for this organization that contracts work through NOAA. www.psmfc.org
I find myself on boats quite a bit these days. I do love it, although it doesn't pay as well as some careers.
Yeah, it's funny. I have some friends with some sweet paying jobs that work in offices, but they hate it. They look at me and see what I do and are jealous. And then I look at them and hear about what they make and I'm jealous. But these jobs I work with this company are all seasonal, so I find myself taking unemployment benefits from time to time. But hey, I don't mind a little bit of time off, I just have to sit at home though cause I can't afford to go anywhere.

Before this career I worked as a line cook. Man, that was WORK. I'm glad I got out of that. The whole time I worked that job I never played paintball. Culinary professions = low pay and working weekends which equals no chances to play.
I'm glad I have weekends off now so I can go play occasionally.
The least I can say about working in kitchens is that I came away with it knowing a thing or two about how to cook. I do almost all the cooking in my house because of it, for better or for worse. My girlfriend gets mad at me when she cooks since I always am suggesting different ways of doing things.

If I could, I would try and buy and resell drum equipment, but alas, I would need to live in a bigger city in order to have a suitable base to buy/sell from.
