RE: Working in the Canadian oil sands: 6 figures in 6 months!
Survived my first week in the patch, couple more days to go... Couple nights at -35~ but it's starting to warm up now. Taking the rig down this week, almost finished with the well. Pretty well eat, work, sleep repeat... haven't eaten this well ever. Breakfast, lunch, dinner buffet Tongue hoping to get some more work in before shutdowns but we'll see if I can get another gig or not. Going smoother than I expected! Got on with a good group of guys, everyone's looking out for me and showing me the ropes. Looking forward to payday and what should be my best haul to date $$ wise. Ridiculous amount of hours + overtime + isolation pay.

Thanks to everyone who dropped info in this thread! Wouldn't be here without all the advice given.. Another lifechanger to chalk up to the RVF.
