It will definitely be a cool experience but I'm hoping to come back to the gulf(or at least somewhere that doesn't freeze) soon.

You work for Noble? My dad and my uncles work for them. An my grandpa is retired from them. Good company.

Actually my dad had to go to Dutch Harbor to meet the rig when it got there and train some of the guys that are working on it.

Westwegan- I just went thru there back in april it was kinda cool that they go thru that much for every person they hire. I was lucky to have a good group of guys to spend 2 weeks in a classroom with

Im not into that part of Brazil I'm just not a big fan of freazing my a$$ off! But that is a good point a lot of the guys I know that worked in Brazil either divorced or came close to it. Also a few with families in both countries.

Worked and vacationed in S. America. I have to admit, it would be tough to go back and ignore the sights as a married man. Those folks sure can grow some great "crops!" ... And, no, I'm not referring to any s. American plant!

When they come into port all the crabs are steamed. I don't think even the crew man are allowed to take any off the boat, I'm pretty sure I seen that on Deadliest Catch.
