    Default Indy 500

    Man, are there many things that are more incredible than open wheel race cars? I have a hard time sitting for 4 hours watching cars go round and round in a big oval, but the Indy 500 pulls me in every time. The technology, the speed, the paint jobs . . .

    I got to sit in Bobby Rahal's Indy car as a kid and have been hooked since.

    David, what in the heck do you guys do at night on a rig? Drink? Play cards? Work?

    Are these rigs out in the middle of nowhere where nothing is around you? What do you do if a big storm is coming?

    I work offshore so its a little different than land. At night the people who work days sleep and the people who work nights work. Ummmm no drinking, no alcohol is allowed. We can play cards, the entertainment on my rig (which is actually a drill ship) consists of the following; XBOX 360, Wii, Ping Pong, weight room, cardio room, sauna, about 8 channels of TV, golf simulator (when it is working), air hockey, and wifi. We also have those pool type chairs so you can lay out on the top deck if you so desire (a bunch of the european dudes do this, weirdos!)

    if a big storm is coming what we do depends on how big the storm is. for hurricanes all non essential personnel will leave the rig and the rest of the people will drive the rig out of the way of the storm. tropical storm we may just suspend operations for a few hours until it passes and ride it out.

    Yeah figured alcohol may be a no go. You never know though, as crazy as it sounds we have "beer cart" Fridays. Exactly like it sounds....cart is being pushed around with you guessed it,....beer on it. But then again we are not workin on an offshore rig.

    Sounds like they have you guys covered as far as keeping you busy. How many folks are on your rig? Close quarters?

    So you get the euros in their mankinis on the top deck huh? They are a different breed that is for sure.

    Ever been in any really bad weather? How far off shore are you anyway? Can you still see the shore? I thought I remembered you saying you got on a boat somewhere in La to go to your rig but couldn't remember how far away it was.

    Cool job man, you should take some pics if your bored.
