I'm shocked that Chickenboy left a hanging INP!

Surprising. With the plummeting rig count and the widespread layoffs, I'm surprised that the oil services companies are bringing in new blood from out of state.


He wasn't "really" out of state, as he was stationed at Minot for the previous 4 years.

They were going through some layoffs, but he already got a supervisor position, so he's fairly safe.

With the influx up there, housing costs are unreal. what would be a $500 apartment here runs $1,400 over there. Fortunately, the companies give out a housing allowance to help.

Any kids? That makes a more "interesting" dynamic in the driller-heavy areas (like Minot). Reminiscent of the gold rush days of yore with prospectors bringing their families (or starting ones) in mining camps.

Guess who just got a gig as a visiting professor of poultry medicine?

On Grenada.

For two weeks.

Paid.

With full accommodations, meals and airfare.

And a trip for Mrs. Chickenboy thrown in too.

Yessirree, Chickenboy-san struttin' around the roost tonight.



ETA: @USS Mike-give me a run down on the type / brand of rum you want I should bring back for you. AW1Steve-I owe you a bottle too.


How are you gonna lecture if you're slurring your speech?

When in Grenada, do as the American college students do. Isn't that an age-old saying?

Not yet. I don't think I'm ready to be a grandparent at 46.

So, when do you believe anything you read on the Internet? I never do. Except on these forums. Lots of great information here!

Really? That's the most common blood type, if memory suits. Why would they be short on that and not, say, a universal donor like O- first?

You donated so that some guy somewhere can say, "Hey! Hold my beer for a second. Y'all watch this!"

Well, I'm not denying that.

Just don't make PotUS have to send the troops out again to rescue your butt.

Of course that was my first thought as well.

No Cubans in sight, from what I understand.
