It’s not every day that one of us has to crawl under a counter to work on plumbing but believe it when we say there is no typical day on a marketing tour! At a recent event we had a little tiny leak one a fixed coolerJ. Had that drain failed during a show we would have quickly found a wet floor and can unhappy client. Lucky for Team Van Gelder, Josh has the skills and patients to keep on top of all the moving parts.
Neither of us are strangers to a toolkit. Abigail’s father was an electrician and plumber like many of his ilk the last thing he wanted to do when he got home after long days was to have to fix something. Thankfully he taught his kids more than the basics and it’s that comfort that has made a big difference of tours, just a few weeks ago she rewired some speakers to custom fit on a new build. As for Josh’s hand skills he’s just that, handy. His love of learning to build things started in the Boy Scouts and has never ceased. When still teaching he spent a summer off as a handyman. Part of the lure of marking tours is the need for diligence in maintenance and there are always new problems to work through.
