RE: Working in the Canadian oil sands: 6 figures in 6 months!
I waited 5 weeks to go drilling after being hired for fly in jobs cause I had no car. Once I got the licience and truck it took literally 10 minutes after I called them. Turns out my 2 weeks as a leasehanding is actually 1 week. Also I got work as an mwd already with another company once I get back. Real happy with that.

Worked my first few hours on the rig today. Its loud and feels like you're inside a massive engine. Its dangerous but managable. Also got run off the road by a logging truck on the way up. Just like scotian warned about Haha Nasty impact but the truck survived and was out in an hour after getting towed. Feels like the cold wild west out here
