Recommended Posts

Alright SMD, I think its time! I would first like to introduce myself. My name is Wood and Im 23.

I work 50hrs a week, own my own EVRYTHING (but sometime it feel like bills own me LOL :throwrock: ) so YES, It will be a slow, but very progressive build. I'm enrolling back in college this coming fall to be an electrical engineer with 6yrs prior service in the Air Force Reserve as an EE on the F-16. I am a car enthusiast and music FREAK!!
