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.

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

http://www.careersinoilandgas.com/vi...video=wireline

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


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

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 :|

Alrighty.....the project I was on got cancelled, so they cut me a fatass cheque and told me to go home 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!
