    What's happening fishy folks.

    Due to the lack of work around my region we have had to look further a field for some work.
    Lucky we won a few contracts multi year building contracts.

    The down side we are going to living away from home for about 2 years.
    Monday to Friday stay away.

    This will be interesting how my son takes it. My wife will be fine she is use to me working away when things go quiet.
    So setting this up as a interactive chat, and when possible add photos around the location I am working in Canterbury nz.

    How far away from home will you be?

    How long of a drive, one way?

    Place called Christchurch 200kms from home.
    To me it's only a little trip, seeing I have ranged in the past flights to the work site.

    Work wise though we live up here to keep up with work.
    2.5hr drive some time 3hrs depending on how slow kiwis drive. Head bang against the wall, man they are retarded on the roads.
    Can see why we have a year round death toll increase every year. They are flummoxed by anything here, apart from tax they love tax increases and never complain, just pay more.

    Sorry to hear that you have to work away from home for the next long while. I'm glad that you and your family are able to find ways to make it do-able.


    Idiots on the road -- now there's a universal truth. You would think people would have to pass some sort of test or something to be able to be allowed to drive... oh, wait.

    My time driving over seas has me think nz is a special kind of stupid.

    They are flummoxed by the most simple things, and so fearfully slow!
    But it's okay they are lowering all speed limits, banning Suzuki swifts and corollas to help the death toll, which is a ever growing statistic each year.

    Oh and more tax.

    My wife is looking after them, then on the weekends water change.

    Most things are plug and play so it's easy top off ect with just a turn of a tap.

    Also have a experienced hobbiest close by in case of issues.

    Use to working away, hell Ozzie some days we use to drive 4hrs just to get to work.
    One place we lived dad worked one month on one week off driving.

    10hr drive to drop him to work.
