I’m Anthony C. Martin from Lodi, CA. Born and raised on a farm in Northwest Missouri. Ran cattle and pigs. Planted corn and beans. Put up a lot of hay too. Regularly hunted on our property.
Left home after a year at the University of Missouri for California, school wasn’t my thing. Joined the Iron Workers Union in 1980 and have been hanging iron ever since. Have worked on buildings all over CA. Been at 640 feet on 10 inches of iron not tied off.
My daughter was born 8-8-88, we tried for 8:00. Didn’t happen, 10:32. She is a PA in Minnesota, pregnant now with my first grandchild and my best friend.
Dad sold most of the property in MO and moved to Arkansas, the winters were getting to tough for him. I plan on retiring and build a house there on the farm to be close to him. I have to convince my CA native wife that this is a good move for us. She is a great gal and I love her and want the best for her.
Besides guns my other pastime is motorcycles. I am the Treasurer if the Ironworkers M. C. Club 118. Have been riding for 50 years.
Hope to make new friends and gain knowledge here on M*CARBO.
