      Its been a strange two years, Three Nuke Refuel outages in the states, Two Canadian Petrochem projects (both in North Alberta work camps), One Month long adventure along the US/Mexico Border (not as exciting as you could imagine), and a failed attempt at office manager at a tattoo shop.

      Along the way I acquired a few new skills like: Lockpicking/safecracking, SEM (scanning electron microscope) operations, 3D printer operations (I have experience on three different models), and tattoo machine construction/ shop operations (autoclave, making needles, tuning/building machines)

      I split my time between Chicago burbs and Alberta because I am a jet set pipefitter, and yes I understand how weird that sounds. My work visa expires in FEB 2016, after that I will be stuck in the states unless my paperwork goes through with out any more problems.

      Would love to hear how the rest of you are doing, I will try to check this more often (roosterteeth), ask and I will happily give out my email address.

      so, ever wonder how fast your life can go from one end to the other? I am now in Edmonton Alberta Canada. In processing for work in the sands near Fort Mac. Work is going to be getting strange shortly again. I am requesting to be put on night shift again (its +3 an hour more) and living in a "work Camp" although to be honest it sounds like what i am already used to while traveling. live close to the project as you can get, work as much as you can (usually 10 or 12 hour shifts 6 or 7 days a week) and just collect the pay checks. Make plans on what to do when you are done. Canada seems to be a laid back place, then again I have only delt with banks, safety stuff, SIN people, and immergration (work visa). I will be the first person from the chicago area to be sent up here by my union, and I am taking notes as to make it easier for the next guys that want to do it as well.

    • its been a week since work.

      and some how i am stuck between step 2 and three now what?!?!?! I guess I will check out the local hacker spaces. I found out the local I belong to got merged when i was working and had my head in the sand with my own projects; so maybe my five year plan just got fenced in to the chicago area. Not a bad thing mind you just going to be strange to me, I would prefer to travel.

    • New job, old job, and WTF now.

      Well I go to training in a week for a steel mill shut down that should be about 7 days of 12hr shifts. So figure 84hrs, then its another round of : "OH SHIT WHAT NOW?" I am thinking that because of the new union situation (yes I am a union guy, don't want to hear the pro/cons of it) I think I can be sent to the tar sands in Canada that I have been trying to get to for the last three years.

      The old job you ask? Well apparently we did not see eye to eye OR there was a communication problem. Cannot really post on that till the appeals are done (union stuff).

      Let me make this clear, I AM DOING FINE. this last job really inflated the bank acct to something I am not used to, and I still act like I don't have a nickel to my name (so I pay cash for everything).

      I am mostly dealing with mid-life crisis type shit; brought on by the reality that the world is open for me because of my trade and skill set (and the fat bank acct, yes i am that shallow). The biggest thing is that I want to date but the five year plan I set out on two years ago really does not leave room for exposure to a large dating pool (and I do not lower my standards)

      So good friday, yeah most people celebrate a guy getting tortured and killed, three days later he came back from the dead (ZOMBIE?) Sound like a perfectly good reason to stuff your kids full of candy that was dropped from a egg laying rabbit..........

      I think I might side with the neo-pagens on this one. its re-birth, its kids, so go forth and be fertile.
      DID i EVER MENTION i AM STERILE..............
      Hmmmmmmmmm

    • its the end of the world as we know it....

      oh ye gods and little fish!
      I am working at bp whiting refinery! What a cluster-fuck.

      ten hour shifts, five days a week nights (more like early afternoons till early mornings)

      I had a mini vacation after the project in Alton, IL for about three months. just kinda bummed about.

      Then I get a phone call:

      "want to work at another refinery?"
      "no"
      "its closer to home"
      "no"
      its paying *** scale and working five tens"
      "........."
      "Think about how much you can save and screw off with once this is over"
      " shit, sign me up....."

      Okay, here by St Louis the winter has been postponed. If it isn't winter out by you how is the riding so far this year? Did you quickly put your bike back together from the winter tear-down and re-build? Take it out of storage?

      My rat-bike's front end are scattered across a workbench because the damn front fork blew out a oil seal..... so the wait is killing me, that's my excuse; whats yours?

      I had never even HEARD of a waitlist before this. There are like 20 odd people ahaed of me in the classes I can squeeze into my work schedule. As it is, I am happy to get a math class. Just need to get my foot in the door, you know? Learn the campus, meet some people maybe.
