One lesson that I have learned is that hidden expenses can come out of nowhere (truck breaking down, not getting paid for a month after you start etc. ) so I would keep busy till you start and try find another way in the meantime of making some more quick cash. If you can get one rotation or some temp work even I would take it for sure. Plenty of time to party in the off season so make the most of winter while it is busy. I have found it hard myself- I am constantly tempted to go drinking or snowboarding. Best of luck man and again- well done.

Thanks man. SSS was gold, and finding a quick rotation now is exactly the plan. I am going to get a solid 4x4 with winter tires tomorrow, then drive to Ft Mac very early Monday morning. I won't need more than a week or two to max out my pleasure in Banff anyways... at least that is what my wallet hopes.

Congratulations on the great success you have been reporting. I appreciate the detailed boots-on-the-ground lessons you have been posting here. Have a Merry Christmas wherever you are.
