Hello all. It’s time for me to step aside as an Admin and let somebody else in who wants to take it on. My absence from the COD2 servers over the last nearly 2 years because of a career change leaves me longing to play, but little or no time to indulge myself. On those rare occasions when I do have some free time, my old gaming rig just doesn’t seem to have the balls to pull it off. I will never willingly turn in my XI tags, but having me remain as an admin is kind of a waste since there are so many other competent players who spend a lot of time there, and I’m sure would be happy to take the job.
Those of you who know me have heard about my change of jobs to a long haul truck driver, and this January it will have been 2 years since I started. I’ve learned a lot in that time, have piled on a lot of miles, seen some spectacular sites around the country, but most of all I’ve learned that this is a job for a younger man. At 57, being away from home every week and working 14-16 hours a day is taking its toll on me, and I had all but decided to take another turn in career paths when something great happened. My experience as a corporate executive over 30 years and now my additional experience in the world of trucking has given me a unique skill-set. My current employer, while a very nice man and a competent truck driver really has no idea how to run a fast growing company. In my 8 months with him, I have offered some business advice that he put to good use, and he has asked me to help him run the operation and oversee pretty much everything. So over the next couple of weeks we’ll try to iron out some of the details, but with any luck I’ll still be doing a bit of traveling, but not hauling a load while doing it.
All of those years in business I always had regrets and wished I had chosen a job that kept me outside and not stuck behind a desk. But these days, a nice office with a comfy chair is sounding kind of good. So with any luck, I’ll be making quite a bit more money, can afford a new gaming rig, and will have some time to game with my friends again in the very near future.
I hope this finds you all well, and I look forward to seeing you all soon.
