time to get floaties for the F4?

My bike is lonely in the garage due to weather... At least I can look at it and sit on it. Couldn't imagine being stuck out there with the water.

Yes it sucks to be so far away from Wife, Bike and Home. But don't feel depressed, You can go Home again after 14 Days, I have to wait for a return Home at least another month. Just to be two weeks at Home and leaving than for at least four month on the next Project. Things can be worst, believe me.

Its got its good points, okay you are out here for 2 weeks but the good point is you get 3 weeks home leave each time you get off, except for the occasional fire fighting course etc which is done on your leave time.

works out you only work 20 weeks a year with 30 weeks off unless you are pulled in the office for projects, the answer is: "dont answer your phone"

Jan / Feb are the worst with 100mph winds, high sea's, snow / sleet etc and no shelter which is not much fun if you are due off and the weather is too bad to allow a chopper to land.

Haupti - whats the project? what do you do?

only 10 days to go now, the count down is on.

one last thing, if any guys from the USA read this, I intend to fly out to new york in April/May for a couple of days then drive down to Miami with a good few stops in-between, can any one sugest a good scenic route after leaving Washington?

Well I'm building Power Plants, better Gas Turbines + Generators + Auxiliaries, and this all over the world. Actually I got it fairly good, I'm in Italy, but not in the nicest Place of Italy. So between Lombardia and Piemonte.
But hey from NYC to the South. May take the Blue Ridge Mountain Trail.
Keep on Buddy even the thoughest time will pass.

ONE DAY TO GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooooo

thought this day would never come, sea height has been 15 meters so unable to get supply boats in, water down to a minimum so no work gear (overalls) washed, only enough water for showers but tanks running low.

If this keeps up there will be a down man until we get water onboard, but hey!!!!!! who cares, im off tomorrow haha hehe hoho

just for you guys not in U.K. - did you know our jails are full, only enough cells left for severe criminal acts, its all over the news, its like handing "get out of Jail free" cards to all the criminals, they now all know they can break into homes etc without the fear of prison, this place is going to the dogs!

anyway tomorrow the MV will be fired up (hopefully)

Just imagine how much money you are racking in? I know a couple of my friends who works in the mines in Western Australia and they are rolling in it.

Its a sh!t job but someones got to do it.

Well you can go shopping for a couple Tambo with the excess danger money when your onsite. hehehe

Slow is smooth and smooth is fast!!
