Don't be too picky, it can be hard to land a camp gig, the majority of guys who've moved to Alberta since I started this thread are not working camp jobs, they're living in Edmonton or Calgary. A lot of them are working in the cities, mostly normal schedules, Monday to Friday type of deal, they're gaining the work experience and getting the training/tickets that they need in order to work up north. Some of the guys have no interest in working camp jobs and are happy with the in town gigs and having a "normal" work schedule.

Basically all of the questions that you're asking have been answered a million times on here, just read the thread, take notes if you have to and move out west with some money and see what happens.

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