Not sure how accurate it is anyway. Most of the truly expensive cars haven’t offered mt in decades. Maybe because classic cars with mt are beyond the reach of us poor folk now?

Submitted my 2 years ING package, everything was fine and dandy. But turns out states don't necessarily have to follow big army rules when it comes to inactive soldiers. CT didn't like that I dared to fulfill my contract clauses, and in a way denied my second year of ING, which is where I've been since FEB of 2022. March, April, May, June, July, August, I was technically "Absent", but my NCO simply, to help me out, and tell CT to get fucked, marked me excused. But a soldier cannot, not get paid for more than 90 days while they are in active status, which where I am, as of FEB 2022. So, until FEB of 2023, I can either to some light attendances of duty weekends, or simply answer a "Are you alive" text. My unit is asking, in return of helping me out with Connecticut's BS, is to attend a 3-day duty weekend to train the new soldiers as everyone else with my MOS has left. I accepted because is the least I could do, and I kind of miss everyone. Submitting another ING package at this stage would be a bigger pain, and is not worth it.



So, TLDR, I am technically, but not fully, depending on which component of the Army you ask, sort of active, and sort of inactive.

Yep that sounds like the military. Any country at any time in history!

Well shit, I'm fully booked this weekend, next weekend, and the following is already booking up for car details/washes. This is awesome. I might need to start considering a more formal booking system. I've been using my outlook calendar which for now does the job.

You got that right. I'm not too stressed over it though, kind of excited to see my old NCOs and anyone still in the unit. I always held a grudge over the Army itself. But the members of my unit are my second family.

Most of my old NCOs and officers are long dead now. One guy that joined as a base recruit just after me just retired as a General.

Consider how you might incorporate such that liability is not against personal assets... One wrong customer deciding to sue over anything at all... Taxes become messier, but likely worth it.

Please do elaborate more. Is this related to my HOI or establishing a type of LLC.
