/in/ job: electrical engineer - it pays the bills and then some.
/out/ job(s): radio ops (backhaul/infrastructure) and pro snowmobiler (racer/educator/media).
I burn nearly all my vacation december to may. I'll work maybe one full week a month during that time, rest of it's 3- and 4-day weekends, with a full week here and there.

My total costs come out to roughly 21,000 dollars. That's including material, flooring, electric, water, etc, toilet, etc. I have most of the furnishings already will just need a fridge, stove and a few other things. But I can buy shitty ones and upgrade them in a few years. I have 16k saved up now, I'm shooting for 35k by the time I'm ready to move which should be enough to cover the land (I'd like at least 2 acres, don't mind if it's out in bum fuck nowhere) and the house. If I'm a few thousand short I'll look into a loan or something.
>>1106294
My plan is to for now just build it with a kitchen/ dining area that melds into a living room on one half and the other half is laundry room/ bathroom and then bedroom. Don't have the pictures on me right now (at work) but in simplest terms it's just like a square divided into 4 smaller squares, starting from bottom-left going clockwise it'd be living room -> dining room/ kitchen -> bathroom/ laundry -> bedroom. I figure after a few years living there I should have enough money to do some add-ons and I might extend the living room and possibly add a second room which would double as room for guests or entertainment room.

>I'm studying to be an electrical engineer, did I make a good choice?
Engineering's less about math/physics, and more about being able to figure things out and answer questions using math/physics as tools to answer those questions.
There's a difference between "being smart" and "being useful" to a business. I've worked with a lot of brilliant people who aren't very useful to a company, for a number of reasons.
The trick is to know yourself, whether you're one of the more hands-on figures-shit-out-makes-shit-work types of engineers, or one of the engineers who's real solid on paper/design but dangerous with a screwdriver. Use that knowledge about yourself and your skills to find the right company and position for those skills.

But overall, yes. It's hard work to get that degree, if you just want that piece of paper there's much easier options out there. But having a degree in any engineering discipline opens up a lot of opportunities for good jobs.

Protips:
>Learn programming
Any language. As a test engineer, my weapon of choice is LabVIEW. Learn to automate processes... working with files, processing data sets, capturing and manipulating information from various sources (databases, Serial/GPIB/USB/Modbus instruments, data acquisition modules, etc).
>Learn some skills from other disciplines
CAD specifically. I was briefly exposed to AutoCAD at a summer job, but never really *learned* CAD. There were many times where having that tool would have been useful early in my career, I eventually asked my manager about some formal SolidWORKS training and did that - man I wish I did that a long time ago. Being able to knock out a model for an enclosure for a circuit board I just designed and make that enclosure on a 3D printer makes me real valuable as a test engineer. Nobody else in my group has those mechanical skills.
>There's more to life than the paycheck.
Vacation, insurance. Shit adds up, and having a life is worth a lot of paycheck.

Independent contractor, netops.
Wouldn't want it to be a full-time job, i'm sure the fun would die out real quick if it's all I did every day.
>Plus I'd probably have to deal with subscriber radios and fleet management... customers suck

I'm exclusively two-way and paging - don't deal at all on the cellular or broadcast side other than a few colo'd sites. If you're in it for the money, you'll want to get into cellular or broadcast. And they're both really political industries.

Modern digital systems all ride on IP. Whether the backhaul's point-to-point microwave or VPN through public internet, once the radio "data" (whether it's digital voice traffic or actual data (telemetry, text-messaging, etc)) is in the site it's handled and routed as IP traffic.
Learn networking - routing, switching, OSPF, infrastructure best-practices, Erlang function/capacity planning.
On the electrical side... RF theory, propagation, grounding/shielding, AC- and DC-distribution, battery management.
Mechanical ... basic equipment assembly/maintenance, cable routing/management... statics: wind/ice loads for antennas and towers.
Personally ... decent vehicle, "muh survival skills" for varying wx conditions, in shape enough to climb towers and work at height and at elevation. "Thinking safe" is important.
Politically ... Sometimes it's commercial/business jobs that are focused on the bottom line, other times it's government/public-safety with their own agenda and attitudes. Never turn down a contract, but make it worth your time over whatever else you're doing.
>tfw quoting $300/hour plus mileage to change a lightbulb
>and they still go with my quote because "they know i'll do good work compared to the other guys"

A lot of the full-timers in the business own their own company, because it's the only way to make a living in the business.
Certifications and industry reputation are what's going to make or break the deals, vs. having an engineering degree.

EE and electricians are two very different careers.

Some of the basics will cross over... V=IR holds true regardless of whether it's a voltage divider for a microprocessor circuit, or resistance over a length of high-voltage transmission line.

EE is a "professional career", white-collar job. Odds are pretty high you'll spend most of the day writing code or drawing lines on a computer screen. If you're lucky, you might get some time in a lab actually building shit.

Electrician is a trade. Go for certifications and experience instead of a college degree.

If you go the college/EE route, the first year is mostly gen-ed courses with all the engineering disciplines. If you go in knowing you're after EE, the 2nd year you'll start to focus on electrical stuff - circuits/signals, digital design, etc. You could still change majors pretty easily.
3rd year, you're heavily invested in that major. You're taking more advanced math, and a lot more electrical-oriented classes. Still have some mechanical stuff like statics, maybe dynamics, but most of your days will be electrical.
4th year+, is entirely focused on your major. Maybe one or two fill-in gen-ed courses .... technical writing, maybe a business class.

Learn programming. Almost nothing's discrete anymore, even if your focus is in hardware, you're still dealing with software-defined instruments, test setups, and drivers.

Going out again soon, i don't think i'm coming back. Women are whores and "friends" are temporary. After my order is completed and my fishing money invested i'll be heading into the country for a month or two living out of my truck or i might even just buy an ATV.

I made peace with god at sea, and it has destroyed me. I thought i was going home, and still i am stuck in this life of never ending struggle. The women who hold me hold me because of my looks and my money, the "friends" who drink with me only do so out of convenience, and the rest of the world watches as this country is colonized by shitskins.

4/10 but getting better. I used to be /out/ pretty much all the time but then I got married, stopped going outside and got fat. Now I'm losing weight and going outside again because I realised that life without nature is shit.

The older I get, I really want to just sell everything and go get a cabin up there. My friend/neighbor who I lived next to for 23 years, his grandpa has a cabin outside of Eagle River and he pretty much inherited it now and I would love some property like that.

Sucks tho because when I went there as a kid, there were only a couple other little houses within miles and miles on these couple lakes. I looked at Google Earth of the area recently and I think rich cunts have been building big lake houses in the area. It's still real quiet, but not like it was.

Hello, i'm 18 and was thinking of attending HSU and becoming a Forester, but you make it sound terrible. Can you help me decide if it is right for me? There aren't many foresters online.
I have some questions:
>How did you become a forester?
>What concentration should I do in pic related?
>Should I go for a Masters in Natural Resources?
>How's the job market?
>Why is it depressing?
>Should I major in Wildlife Management and Conservation or Conservation Biology instead?

Sorry if I sound like a fag but I just want you opinion and general tips

If you're any good at your job, you should try n get into a supervisor role. That way you can put "management" on your resumé. And if you get even higher where you aren't in the kitchen 100% of the time, you can add "customer service" too. Employers always love seeing "management" because it means that you don't need somebody to hold your hand and once they train you, you will be reliable on your own without somebody babysitting you.

Everybody thinks I'm either a nigger or a boomer.

All of my customers at work think I'm like mid-30s and married with kids. I guess it's how I talk to people and impart wisdom beyond my years. Not the nigger part tho, that comes from Newports and pics of my hands.

I had you pictured as a fat boomer, cross between redneck and yuppie. The kind of guy that wears striped polos with shorts and birkenstocks. Pepsi hat. Sitting by a creek drinking light beer catching gay fish.

Kek, you didn't see the other thread where I posted a pic of myself and so many people were amazed that I wasn't black, a boomer, or a disgusting neckbeard and I think there may have been some gay fags fapping to me which kinda sucks but I'll take it as a compliment.
>>
>>1119050

Actually the cross between redneck and yuppie might be ok. I will be wearing an American Eagle flannel, smell like a combination of cologne and fish, and drinking Starbuck's while smoking a Newport.

I hope you're ready...

Oooooh thank god.

Serious question; Do you and your supervisors understand that traffic signals are supposed to be used to make roads MORE, not LESS efficient?

It is obvious to any idiot that the opposite has been taking place in the twin cities for at least a decade.

What the actual FUCK is going on? Help me to understand why it is backwards-day every day in Minnesota.

I used to be a full time raft guide but I got tired of living out of my truck. You really have to love the "lifestyle" if your gonna do it for more than a couple seasons. It was fun, but there's a lot more stability in teaching flatwater classes instead in a big city.

>10/10 for /out/ employment but 0/10 for recent /out/ings

I have 3 WW kayaks and a snowboard and I havent used any of them outside my work for about 4 months (there's a ski resort in the Cascades that stays open through the summer). I only did 1 camping trip this year and a handful of long hikes.

Hopefully Oregon will get the la nina that was forecasted for this winter and we will get tons of snow and I can get stoked about going /out/ again.
