There was never a question about me resigning, which I have.  At some point I'll have to go back to work.  Probably take a refinery job.

So I talked with a lady whom I worked with at my pt job. Her husband and two sons are still working up in the Bakken, although her husband lost his initial job(along with 4000 other guys, she says). He got a call 4 days later and left. Both boys are still working in production, but I didn't ask what the hours were.

Production jobs are secure.  This is where the well is drilled and producing.  Makes no sense to shut it down, since the money is already spent. 

My crew is still active, but I heard June is the n*t cutting time.  I need to check in with them soon.
