RE: Working in the Canadian oil sands: 6 figures in 6 months!
Just wanted to say, I have been following this thread for a while. Big thanks to all the guys in Alberta(scotian, irishman,etc..) for providing all this boots-on-the-ground intel. I am really eager to jump on this opportunity and fly out there. Its not something I would want to do long term but I figure 2-3 years could give me a nice little cushion to pursue some modest business ideas of mine. I have to say, there is only one thing that scares me. I don't mind getting my hands dirty. I am as strong as an ox. I like the cold. And I think I could bear no female company for a few weeks. BUT 100 hour work weeks? That sounds crazy. I worked 60-70 hours as a waiter in college and that was brutal. Can some of the guys here comment on this? Is it something you just get used to? Health effects? I cant imagine its possible to live an optimal healthy lifestyle in this line of work. And long term sleep deprivation wrecks havoc on the body, plenty of studies to back that. This is my one reservation as I consider my health to be a priceless asset.
