I returned from offshore last weekend. The trip went a little something like this:
Day 1: Get to the rig, set up all your equipment and check all your equipment. It is about one full day’s worth of work.
Days 2-4: Sit. Or lay. Or walk around the rig with nothing to do. I took this time to finish two books and run on a treadmill. Eventful.
Day 5: Work all day. Day 5 will bleed into Day 6. Before you know it, you’ve been up for 40 hours and haven’t even left the cab to use the restroom.
Day 7: Wake at 06:00, board helicopter, go home.
It’s over before you know it.
The photo below was taken at a frozen yoghurt shop a few weeks ago. This is the best flavor.
