Leaving for about 6 months...

Home  \  Off Topic  \  Leaving for about 6 months...

...to freeze my balls off on a winter work project. I was successfully hired as a wire line operator working in northern alberta for about the next 6 months, and I'm leaving tomorrow night for it. I'll try to pop on when I can, but I'm not sure when I'll be able to.

Good luck...I'm sure it'll pass pretty quickly. What exactly does a wire line operator do? lol.

Well, I'm not quite gone yet......so here's a link to describe what I'll be doing....

I will have my camera on one of my outings, so I will be able to take pictures of where I am...especially when I'm flying into the area :thumbs:


I've heard that after we have the rig up and running i'll be able to nap or scratch my nuts for up to four hours... and get paid for every minute :D

Anyways, I'm drunk as ****, and full of Oreos(I just ate a whole bag of 'em), so I'm off to sleep for about 6 hours lmao!), so I will be passing out and maybe leaving another message before I leave :|

Good luck, I hope it all goes well for you. We look forward to your return. Have a Bud on me.....or a beer of similar variety (Only Foster's in my case.....they're the only two, lol). :thumbs:

Alrighty.....the project I was on got cancelled, so they cut me a fatass cheque and told me to go home :thumbs: Too bad the ****ers couldn't have done that BEFORE new years....

Oh well, it was fun while it lasted, made a pissload of money and drank enough booze to sink a ship.

BUT I'M BACK!
