well they say people that eat buggers are immune to lots of stuff...but being exposed to the crap we are exposed to does build a stronger immune system the natural and safe way, so hell im not embarrassed at all to tell people I deal with schit all day and make lots of $$$$ doing it...

Looks nice! Kinda what I did when I drove a van.

When I went on my own after 4 years working out of a box truck, I bought a van. That lasted a week before I started looking for a box.
when I worked for people I drove everything from a pickup, box truck, step van , short van and extended van....I decided the best truck for me would be an extended van..this way I can drive the parkways and not be restricted by commercial plates....
you carry alot of big drain equipment so a box works better...my biggest item are materials and then I get free delivery from the supply house in their truck, so I dont need a bid vehicle for that..I carry enough materials to do all repairs and if I have a big job I bring enough materials to work till the delivery gets there..

lmao...so some crapola does that to you?? well when the auger hangs out in the air it dries up and the germs or anything else dry up and die too, put it in a sealed bag and you have a germ farm and breeding ground for them because inside that sealed waterproof bag it will stay moist forever...

Exactly, those bags are disgusting. I take a bucket in with me when I use it and when I am done unclogging I run it a couple more times to get any "bits" off of it and then I coil it in the bottom of the bucket. Out at the van I spray a touch of bleach on it and let it sit in the bucket in the van until it dries out. After it is dry I put it away. If I have to put it away sooner for space I will hose it off somewhere first.

lets be honest, how many sever lines have you cut open and worked on with bare hands and a little sewer juice always splashes you in the face....so after that, how bad could some dried schit on wood be?

That's easy, barehanded ZERO...splash it happens, can't help that, but prevent all that you can.
Also obviously clean it off with water/cleaner/bleach whatever before you put it in the bag...

no matter what youdo your going to get plenty of sewer juice on you your hands, clothes ,skin and whatnot...even wearing gloves..you touch all your tools and equipment..thats just part of the game..and what doesnt kill you makes you stronger...if one is going to worry about germs..then plumbing is not the field to be in...
