I’ve been off-shore in Australia for four weeks now, and I was in Darwin for the week before that too. The job was slow in getting started, but now things are heading slowly to an end, for us, at least! By the middle of the week we should be done and I can head back to Colorado and my dear wife again. The big question will be, ‘how long for’, the answer to which, I don’t know at the moment. It could be a short one and then off again, or,if  there are delays with paperwork, it might be for a while. The next job is likely to be one in India, so I may have to do the transit there (short leave) or go down once the ship has arrived for the actual job (long leave). By the time I do get off the Sapura 3000 and head back to the USA, I should know for how long!
