Sooo, does that mean you can go cause a big wreck?. You are a professional now

Start looking for the big boys and show them you got a piece of paper

I towed for about 5 years, all light duty stuff and transport. A few months ago I decided to do this just for myself. If down the road I need employment I feel it gives me more of an advantage over some kid off the street.

Ha, we had to roll a bus in Iraq to get certified for Combat recovery. I remember reading the paperwork thinking why the hell do we need to know how to upright a bus in a war zone? It was fun though we used a 5 ton wrecker for the catch truck and a HET tractor for the pull truck, we uprighted a full system too (Mercedes tractor and a tank trailer) I don't know what I'll do with the knowledge now but hey I still remember enough to get into trouble I bet.

In case you roll your riding mower you know how to properly flip it. Thank you for your service to our country.

Curious- a Wreckmaster Certificate is issued by?? Govt agency? Towing association? I see some pretty young kids running around and sometimes wonder about their qualifications.

Their qualifications are they wanted a job and someone gave em the keys to a wrecker, at least that's how it works here.

Hey Ryan.....I believed you yesterday. Funny this comes up but I've been throwing away stuff that I thought will always be important but lately feel none of my old certificates, ribbons, trophies are important . Oh yea, I found a photo of FIFI the B29 this morning. I thought of you and saved it. I was going to throw it away. Let me know if you want it.

That's a good find, I'm in murfreesboro now and it just flew over, I'm gonna go check it out after I eat. I have a bunch of certificates about a third are actually hanging up and that's just cause they were already framed when I moved. I still have a bunch of my dads plaques and awards I had up in my office at my old house, some times that stuff is hard to get rid of.
