Things are better. BC is fabulous I hear (ask Rob).
I'll think about it once we invade, but not until then.

Yeah, they're pretty much worldbeaters.

Oh I'm quite familiar with the money . Its the only reason anyone goes there, because its not exactly a "nice" area where you'd want to raise your kids. The big money is definitely in the hours. I used to work 12 hours a day, 7 days a week, for as long as 8 weeks in a row. Depending on what sort of work you're doing you'd typically do rotations, but some business like pipeline companies that are on a super tight schedule will have their guys working every single day. I started out doing the pipeline, and we had one day break in a 2 month period because the temperature sunk to -56 incl. wind chill, and the bosses didn't want to expose the machinery to that. When I focussed more on plumbing, the work became a little more humane, but since its still up north you're still living in camps away from home most of the time.
