    Oh...I thought he had given up on his dreams and was slinging hash in a seedy diner on the wrong side of the tracks, hanging out with highwaymen and other ne'er-do-wells.

    He did find himself aimlessly wandering about New Zealand with a camera looking for hobbits at one stage...

    Little harsh I think. :mrgreen:

    Long story short I decided I'd prefer to be a doctor than a pilot and here I am...

    Still may go back to the military once qualified although would like to do some specialist training first and go back in as a trauma surgeon...

    Might not be a bad idea, Hugh

    As an interesting side note, one of the clients at my shop (before the wreck) was SWAT team triage leader with combat medic experience who oversees the three SWAT team triage members and is a primary ER triage technician at one of the two local hospitals.
    Turns out that when he heard the 911 call came through dispatch regarding my wreck, he came and took over my care at the crash site from the paramedics and remained with the team until I was stabilized and transferred from ER to the Intensive care ward.

    I have high regards for EMTs, but nothing beats a combat medic - so I was in good hands.
