I once stayed at Finca Bella Vista in Costa Rica. A treehouse in the jungle.
Being a city person it was unusual loud at night. Lots of wildlife. The entire surrounding jungle became alive in the dark.

No electricity. No cell service.

Highly recommend for introspection type work.

Alberta oil field is getting under way again.
Looking for workers, heavy haul, winch truck, swampers, rig set up, cat/cummins/paccar mechanics welders,rousters. Hydraulics, electricians etc.
This is fracking and natural gas, no oil sands work as of yet, and probably not.
Mostly central alberta.
If your skilled and want to work, and not a snowflake, there are plenty of jobs to be had. It's cold, hard work and not a disney land environment, but there is good money to be made if you can tough it out.
Google is your friend. Alberta oil field jobs.
Cheers


There is pipeline work as well

There are plenty of jobs to be had in the West Texas oil field as well. CDL truck driver jobs are the easiest to get, but everybody is hiring. We are currently looking for workers that possess a CDL

JD, is the Kenworth C500 the preferred truck in the oil field.
Dominates the oil patch in Alberta.
Love me a texas bed tri drive with a scissor neck trailer, don't know why they are not used in construction like the oil patch.
I like a scissor neck better then a RGN anyway, except you need a winch truck.
Glad to hear texas oil field is alive.

The trucks vary greatly. Mack trucks are used by the water and crude haulers it seems. We run Western Star 4900s to pull our cement pumps, frac pumps, and bulk trailers. There are a lot of Internationals too. A lot of the independent guys run Petes and KDubs.

For heavy haul, Petes, KDubs, and Macks seem to be the preferred trucks.

Our trucks have an all steel cab and extra bracing that road trucks don't have. They are considered "vocational" trucks and have proven to be tough trucks and safe, even in a roll over.

Scissor necks are out there. We don't use them for what we do. We have a couple of step decks for transporting our pumping iron for pump down, that's what we use our frac pumps for. I see some floats and a lot of RGN trailers.

You need a winch truck for a scissor neck, only downfall. Otherwise, a useful trailer for moving all kinds of stuff.
Check out timelapse trucker on youtube.
Dude is awesome and works his ass off running oil field stuff and does a lot of train work.

Watched The Suicide Squad last night. It was actually pretty good. They were smart to put James Gunn in charge of it, it had that comedy element that the DC movies never seem to get right.

Yup. Watched it Friday on the old HBOmax. The best DC movie they've made so far, mainly because half the cast/production team were/are from Marvel/Disney.

Agreed. My favorite scene in Heat is when lefty nutjob Mark Ruffalo's character is shot repeatedly at the Korean nightclub and left to die in pain by Vincent (Tom Cruise). That's what he gets for cultural appropriation 🤣
