Default Jumping provinces for work... again

Well in just over a month I will be graduating from my Heavy Equipment Technician program. I am a 3rd level apprentice currently (there are 4 levels). I am headed to a small mining town in Northern Manitoba called Thompson, most of you wont know of this place but there are a few tobans here that will now about this crap hole LOL I was up there last summer for 3 months last summer working for the same mining company. I posted pics of underground a while back in the photography section.

Anyways I am headed back up there for 4 months this time, better money this time around, more hours, but I am away from my gf and family for over 4 months, so I will be on here ALOT more when not working, last summer I worked about everyday and am hoping to do the same this summer. This is deffinetly going to help my career path, especially when the summer is done and I come back home and look for work. Will also finance more goodies for the RAM!

Been there a few times. Stayed at the Burntwood and Mystery Lake, and get this.....I went to the Thompson Inn for Beers! What can I say....I didn't know at the time, but the patrons educated me. LOL

I under stand they have a new hotel/motel/inn, but I have never seen it.

Gone fishing to Paint Lake a few times. Great for Pickerel. Although the locals think I'm crazy, I like the drive to Gillam. You can kill a day, see a decent sized hydro dam, and the craziest house colors outside of the Swizz Alps.

Better scenery if you travel toward Leaf Rapids, but the road really sucks!

Which route are you traveling to get there? I'm guessing your going to take #6 from Winnipeg.

I never did any fishing last summer up there LOL I worked too much to get out to paint lake, I also never went north of Thompson at all, this summer I will get out and see some stuff hopefully. What is funny is that when I left at the end of August I had a feeling like I would see that place again, I wasnt leaving thinking I would never be back, that thought bit me in the ass I think LOL Ya I will be headed up the long boring #6 again. I get reimbursed 42 cents a km, its about 2500 kms from Sudbury to Thompson. I heard that about the road up to leaf and Lynn that it can be pretty bad, and its all gravel. Thompson is a nice looking town, just too many drinking issues and gangs

too late now, but once I am back in september I will be applying everywhere here and up that way... My gf's dad works for Dumas at the mine in Matchewan, 2 weeks in, 1 out, housed and fed... sounds good! 3/4 of his wage in bonus as a mechanic! I worked 5 on 5 off last year and loved that schedule, worked all 5 of my days off every week lol 7 on 7 off would be great! How you liking underground? I cant wait to get back underground!
