I am up here in Alberta, Canada now. I have a job working in the petrochemical industry in the area of Red Deer, Alberta, servicing a lot of the oil production companies in the area. If you do not anything about the place, then you are just like I was a few weeks ago. It is about half of the way between Calgary and Edmonton. When my boss sent me up here I did not even know which province it was in and I was just checking it out on Google. I need to find a red deer real estate agent now and try to find a place to stay that is going to be within the housing allowance that I have. I definitely need to think about getting a tougher truck too, because I am going out in the bush and getting into the deep muddy back wash of this world. Of course I have a Ford F 350 and I got some big tires on it, with a power winch on the front. So I feel like I can probably get out of most problems.
The trouble is that I am pretty much going overland pulling a low boy trailer on my fifth wheel. Usually I have a front end loader or something like that on that trailer and I have to take it out into the middle of the wilderness where these guys are messing about with their oil rigs. I go out and see if I can fix what their problem is, but if I can not, then I swap out that extra machine for the one that broke down on them. Of course these guys can tear stuff up pretty good and there is a definite limit to what I can do out in the middle of nowhere.
