RE: Working in the Canadian oil sands: 6 figures in 6 months!
I met an American guy from Houston at a bar in the Philippines last night and he was on his 28 days off from his job as a rig manager in northern Iraq and Turkey, he told me that he makes $27,000 USD (tax free) per month and I thought that was pretty good but it blew my mind when he told me that he also gets $27K ON HIS MONTH OFF, wow!

So Irishman, that could be you in a few years. This guy also recently paid $75k to his ex-wife in child support payments because he was paying her "off the books" in cash, but the bitch went and sued his ass anyway and took him to the cleaners. He now has a hot young Filipina wife and advised me to not marry a western woman if you're going to be working away from home and making huge money. Wise words.

Don’t sweat the petty things, pet the sweaty things.
