About Rjpeterson79
Joined June 2015
Hello, my name is Robert. I am happy and very excited to finally take the plunge and join this community. I have limited experience and exposure to internet marketing, but have been told I am a quick study, so I say bring it on!

I have three awesome kids that I visit in Beaufort, SC. To through in a twist, I claim Tampa, FL as my home, but am really semi-location independent as I own and operate a semi-truck in the USA, and am looking to expand my fleet.

I am pretty shy, but my curiosity often wins when something interests me. Some of my hobbies and interests are listening to just about every genre of music I can find, exercising, traveling, playing my guitar, gardening, tinkering, video games, and surfing. I have several degrees that I do not currently use, including a Masters in Information Systems (mostly designing and maintaining enterprise networks). I found out the hard way that I had little to no passion to do the work that I had trained so hard for.

I have a very diverse background. As a teenager I had a lot of fun singing and playing lead/rhythm guitar in a garage band, lol. Being a military brat, I had an awesome opportunity to live in Oahu, Hawaii for a year while I was younger where I picked up my passion for surfing. Later when I lived in Yokosuka, Japan I become interested in going to the Cosplay events that are very popular in Tokyo (which is why my favorite holiday is Halloween because me and the kids can dress up, lol). So yearh, I'm a little weird!

My main goal with this program and community is not to be rich, but to become financially independent in that I would like to travel with (or without) my kids. I love to travel and immerse myself in other cultures around the world, which is something I was able to do when I served in the US Navy by traveling all over Asia and met wonderful people.

My second goal here is to understand how to help my community of truckers in areas such as healthier lifestyles, better financial management, etc.

I look forward to working with all of you and please do not hesitate to contact me.

Who needs popularity anyways right? lol Besides there are plenty of open minded people around today to pick and choose who you want to share what is popular to you! I'm guilty of watching most of all of the sci-fi/fantasy/horror/supernatural/etc.... stuff, and love it!

Hello Sheila and thank you for the warm welcome! It is pretty amazing and refreshing to finally be part of a legitimate online business. Electrical work huh? I know that was a lot of work I used to do some in the navy, ended up being to much pulling cables through tight dusty spots in awkward places....no thanks, lol. I certainly have a lot of respect for you guys, but am also glad you guys found WA and are pursuing (what I believe anyway) to be a more rewarding experience. Right back at you in your future success!

You and I have the same goal. We love to travel. I used to have the opportunities to travel quite extensively myself. With this community, I am also hoping to help others to become more financially secure and not rely on a job for their income because of 2008. I have seen the light then.

We sure do Karen! How is the weather in Pac NW? I was just passing through WA and OR on I-84 the other day heading down to Reno, NV, beautiful route!
Reply
Semperf1d0 Premium
Weather is very nice here. Have fun in Reno. I love it down there too. Love the mountains there.

We were bless w/ very nice weather this year.

Video games huh? I love the game called Myst.
Reply
rjpeterson79 Premium
Yeah, I went through the Willamette and Deschutes National Forests on the way down, beautiful country out here...On my way down to Flagstaff, AZ in the morning! Myst was a great game, never got around to playing the rest of the series though; I loved the complexity of Myst!
Reply
Semperf1d0 Premium
Yeah that's what I love about Myst. You just have to use your brain to get where you are going. Did not have time to play the rest also.

I will be hiking down there soon in Willamette PCT.

You probably breeze through the music section. I have to ask help from my nieces.
Reply
rjpeterson79 Premium
I haven't played Myst in almost 20 years Karen, lol, but yeah, fantastic game!

Pretty sweet profile man. Video games eh? How do you feel about Final Fantasy? Cause... SE just announced today that Final Fantasy VII is getting a full remake for the PS4. I shit you not. Made my whole day I'm still on dopamine overdose.
Reply
rjpeterson79 Premium
Thanks man, wow, that brings back memories, FF VII, speaking of nostalgia, remember FF I and III? I play just every type of game out there and reigned at Doom, Quake, Halo, and others, lol.
Reply
RamyF Premium
I've actually never played FF I and III (don't tell my friends they're fanatics who'd kill me in my sleep) but all I had the chance to play was VII, IX, X/X-2, and then tried XIII but couldn't bear it. Doom, Quake and Halo are awesome - you've got taste my friend.
Reply
rjpeterson79 Premium
lol, thanks bud, I could say the same about you. Don't worry those older games are just that now, old. So what other genres of games are you into?
Reply
RamyF Premium
My favorites will always be fantasy RPGs. But I'm pretty versatile with whatever's good, Last of Us was superb. As was Tomb Raider. Infamous Second Son! So many wicked experiences. Then again you've got puzzle platformers like Trine which was hilarious to play with friends. Mario Kart is a classic. I could go on forever when it comes to video games.
Reply
rjpeterson79 Premium
Same here, I enjoy all those too, I got my kids ruling the Mario Kart scene and digging Tomb Raider, lol.

Yeah, my x-wife and I conquered all the Halos together, it was a rule that we had, to not play solo or online until we beat the game, good times.
Reply
RamyF Premium
Haha I had that same rule with a friend playing Dragon Age Inquisition a few months back! Good times indeed. Might get to kick your virtual ass one day.

Beautiful game, but I think you have it wrong my friend, it is I who would be kicking your virtual ass one day!
