My Fiance didn’t work on a rig but he worked for the mining company that mined the rock  that was layed down below the rigs.
Haha. Is he in North Dakota or Wyoming?

my so doesn’t work on a rig yet but he ships and is switchig to drilling.  I also ship.  plus about all of my friends ship!


first of all congrats! depending on company and what rig company the boys should help him out with trying to make phone calls home without going broke. same with sending emails.  you need to get use to being on our own and accepting the fact that he may not be able to call or email (sometimes things go down). get good at managing your money. it’s not an uncommon “rookie” mistake when one first starts shipping to blow money and living paycheck to paycheck. which none of us should seeing depending on his position shipping he’s making anyways from 50k to 100+k! you really need to learn to compromise   you only get half a year together (let’s face it with crew change days it’s even less! so don’t waste your time fighting when he’s home cause then hell leave and for the next 28 days to 3 months (depending on his rotation) you’ll be miserable thinking how you let him leave on such a sour note!


its a great field and it’s hard as hell at first to deal with it but think of it this way when he’s home he’s home! it’s great when my so and I are off we can do whatever we want! vacations day trips hell even sit and do nothing lol so welcome to the world of shipping! have him claim those frequent flier miles!!! trust me!
