What is Experience?
You're correct Ed. What did we do with that experience? Did we take as many lessons from as we could or did we simply file it away as a run in the logbook. Thank you, Bill

What is Experience?
Excellent post. The same question may be framed for other than working on the nozzle (e.g., if delivering pump operator training).
