One more question for you: How long do you think you'll be doing this?

Hard to answer right now. I know it will be hard to step away from these sort of wages but I always seen my self as owning my own business. I will stay at it till I have my full citizenship and lifestyle set up dialed and then see. An approach I make take is only working half the year, still banking over 100k and then working on other projects/travelling the other half.

Who knows how long it will all last 'so make hay while the sunshines' is my approach for the next 3 years anyway and then we will see. Will be interesting to see where all the oil field people posting here are in a few years time...
