Thing is, i'm not afraid of work and longetivety, it's just that my girlfriend just doesn't want to be alone for such extensive period of time in a place and country where she doesn't know a single soul. Is there are more humane option, so to speak, like 14/7 or something like that? And if it's 28/7, is that a 12 hour/day?

Quote:in 35+degree heat so not for pussies. You get used to it though.

So, what's worse from your expirience? Working on -50 or 40+? Man, God really must be a joker, it's really from one extreme to another.
