Just curious who will be spending their Christmas to New years vacation in Glamis.
Looking like I will be camping somewhere in the washes. Possible wash 10 or higher from Friday 12/27 to Tuesday 12/31
Will be camping with some SxS buds from the Teryx forum.

Yeah I was told this afternoon that we may be in washes 4-7 depending on how crowded it is by Friday. I guess we have between 10-20 rigs showing up. So we'll need a big area.

The deal is this. The company I worked for for the past 11 years, and worked my way to being one of thier top foremans closed thier doors after 41 years in business. I found a new job pretty quick, but now instead of being at the top of the totem pole, I'm at the bottom, starting all over again. This is typically the slow time of year for commercial construction. Out of a 30 man crew at the new company, about 1/2 are working, and it aint the 1/2 I'm in. Sucks ass being the FNG.

I took 1 day off for Halloween, and the MF'r threw that in my face Monday when I called in trying to get an address for work. I know whats going to happen...The regulars at the new company are going to want those days off over the holidays, and I'll get the call to go work...I can see it coming... :disappointed:

Actually got a call into one of the union contractors that has a job going at the Bradley terminal. It might pan out, being they'er doing some fabric ceilings with a system I'm very familiar with. We'll see...fingers crossed.
