Well, first of all, don’t believe a thing Amanda tells youe, she lies for the government on a contractual basis and finds it hard to change for the few months working on Ice, next you fill out all the hireright stuff in triplicate and send in some D.N.A. samples along with pics of you in funny costumes (halloween is very important) and then sit back and await the arrival of your P.Q. kit, get your medical done and sent in and then wait for the final role call of winners and waiters.
Getting to the hireright stage is more than some get and so congratulations, relax and enjoy the next few weeks as its gonna get busy with papers flying back and forth, make sure to keep a copy of everything you send them as they are a big company and sometimes things get lost, its easier to open a file folder and resend the papers rather than trying to get them filled again.
Most important? when you are ready and able to head down, ask people what to bring, there are rechargeable batteries there and plenty of clothes in Skua so you do not need 75 LBs of gear and such, you can ship things down ahead so no need to worry about your favourite scents, they may take a few weeks though. Last thing we need is another heap of extra clothing which shall never be taken away and end up adding to Skua piles.
I swear this to be true to the best of my hazy recollection, all apart from Amanda, we loves ya gal.
