RE: Working in the Canadian oil sands: 6 figures in 6 months!
Just got back from a project in the middle of nowhere.

I forgot how to talk to people. The first few days back are always the hardest, especially coming from camp.

I have that deer in the headlights look when I first start re-socializing in normal society, specifically women.

Checkmat just described the last 3 weeks of my life. Austere, isolated, cold conditions.

The conversation I had with my co-worker the second to last day there:

Me: Man it's warming up quickly eh?
Him: Yup
Me: *Checks temperature gauge in truck, it's -20C
"Nice, it's only -20"
Him: You know you're in this part of the world when it's -20C and you're happy it's warm.
