Re: How did you guys find out about the job?


Hi Mike.  Hi Glenn, how’s the sax?  Operatorguy, It sounds like this will be your first international contract.  If it’s “bucks” you’re looking for, go to and come here to Iraq.  They’ll hire just about anyone and it pays better than the Ice.  Really good offers aren’t gonna come ’till you’ve completed your first full contract, anywhere, and established yourself as being suited to this… rigorous lifestyle.  Almost 9 months in Iraq, including convoy driving, and I still think a winter at McMurdo is potentially more dangerous.  Anyway, perhaps I’m too romantic about my experiences, but the Ice is destiny, so if bucks is the primary concern, come to Iraq, the pay’s better, and so is the food.(sorry)
