In season 1, episode 3, Ryan Kruse takes us "up" the Columbia River and shows how much his family supported his entry into the plumbing trade. The kicker? Ryan didn't want to become a plumber, but C.H. Kruse Plumbing is a family business, so he put in the time and effort and became a Journeyman in the early 1990s. Today, he is General Manager for Kruse Plumbing.
