What's The Longest You Went Without Truning A Blade On A Job

Recommended Posts

I hope "the bush" really means a camp, I'd hate to think you're cozying up in the backseat for that long. :D


my longest was 8 days, a 4 day storm blew in from the west, cleared for a few hours, then the wind changed and the same storm blew for 4 more days in the other direction. Gotta love the arctic. It totally sucks when your tour is up at the beginning of the first 4 day storm.

I have been sitting in the bush for a month and for the last five days I have been fogged in so I got to wondering... What is the longest you guys have sat in the bush due to WX or breakdown????

At least you have access to the internet. When I was up there, there was no internet or satelite tv! Listening to that tent flapping in the wind gets boring real fast!
