Hi Everyone. My name is Rob ~ I am from Baltimore,MD. And your homicide rate won't go up because I am here..at least I don't think so...

I just passed my Journeymans Plumber & Gas Fitter Test last summer and am working towards my Masters now. We are tested on the 2003 NSPC/ 2003 Fuel Gas Code. I don't know what it's like everywhere else but here it's like the wild west. Every Co just seems to make there own rules and some are ridiculous.

I started my apprenticeship under my Father & Uncles all now retired & hating it master plumbers doing boiler/steam work and service. After years of not filling my hours ,I finally got smart and switched to a NRC for the past 4 years. Where I know it gets ribbed a lot really was a fun time and a great learning experience especially from a service stand point.

I spent my last amount of time running 3 niephorhoods in my county on performance with a partner.( GW/RI/Finals & service) Until my Co started with the lay off's just before Thanksgiving. It's Ok we were moving into PA on performance and if I was going to starve it was going to be on my couch playing X-Box, lol

Since my lay off I have been looking, but it's a dead zone here. I have a few regualr customers and have picked up a few more. If I had my masters I would probally be crazy and try my hand at doing my own thing now.

Sorry for the long intro ~ and the tag name comes from used to weighing in at 305 pounds and having way to many god children :)

Hi, welcome to PZ!

in my younger days I drove over the road mostly hauling steel. I pulled a lot of steel from the port of Maryland just off I-95 right after the tunnel. Exit 64 I think. I hated having to stay in Jessup.

Thanks Everyone! Sorry to say Hi and go away. Stupid economy~ I needed a stimulus package just to stay online! Just figured it was proper to say hello again, and thanks for the welcome.
