    Well none of you know who I am probably, but I have been lurking in the corners of these forums for a little over a year now. I am in my last month of tech school for HVAC service, and have been avidly been searching for a job in the field for almost 2 months now. Every place I went to same old story, no expirience outside of school, no job. I can not even count on both my hands how many interviews I went through. Well a huge weight was just lifted of my shoulders.

    I finally got lucky and Sears put me on. Now I know I have seen a few threads on here about Sears, and for the most part they have been negative. But hey its a start. Decent pay and full benefits right away. So I really can't complain. I start in two weeks, and can't wait! Now its time to sit back and have a few brews and celebrate!

    Jeff:

    I see you went to Dunwoody. I graduated from Dunwoody in 1973.

    Several contractors in the Black Hills are looking for technicians. In the Rapid City area. A beautiful place to live and the weather is milder than in Minnesota. I was born and raised in Minnesota and would never move back there. The Black Hills area is far nicer.

    We are in Clark, about 30 miles west of Watertown. I think is about a 3 hour drive from your place.

    Well I don't think I could leave the area. If anyrhing I want to go north. I love Minnesota and am in no hurry to leave it. You just can not beat snowmobiling along the north shore, or camping and fishing in the boundry waters.
