Probably uncommon but I am a small scale real estate investor/developer.
Lol, you aren't kidding! I bet you see all sorts of odd and injuries with weird stories!
Rock on! Lieutenant at a large fire department sounds like it took some hard work to get there! Congrats! I work EMS and used to do 48/96 hour shifts, which I loved as well. It was like a 4 day weekend at the end of every shift. I have since moved to a busier EMS department and we do the 24/48s. Not my favorite, but it beats the modified Berkley IMO.I'm a fire lieutenant for fairly large department in California. I used to work for a much smaller fire department, but decided to leave for more promotional and training opportunities as well as specialized assignments. Prior to that I was a law enforcement officer for a large state agency. Working a 48/96 schedule is pretty awesome. It definitely gives ample time for hobbies and travel.
