Jet B Posted July 7, 2008 Report Share Posted July 7, 2008 Well, I was moving seismic rigs and most of our work seemed to die off starting with this last winter. It was around the same time that the new Alberta premier announced that he was going to mess around with the royalties. I don't know if that was a coincidence or not... I'm not sure if it affected just our company or any others moving rigs, and I don't know if the guys swinging bags were hit yet or not. Long story short... I ended up having to find some other work to make ends meet and I have been pretty busy swinging diamond drills around looking for Uranium. So, yes I think some sectors have slowed down but some are still going strong and I don't think anything has changed about a shortage of experienced pilots and engineers. It could be that people are shuffling around to keep busy, but there is still a lot of work out there if you look around. That's the beauty of our industry in some ways... When one sector of industry slows down, we can go do something else. It's just too bad we have to sometimes leave a company we really like just because the work dries up.
