Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

i did get a few days off, the 2 or 3 days per month i got i slept in a shed at my employer's base camp.
the money i did spend was usually for a pizza and some booze on my days off.

i also was able to eat for less than my stipend, so i banked a couple of extra dollars per month.

rest of the year i squatted or bartered for room/board and/or got free food from my (other) employer. or i didn't work and just bartered for food/room.

live the dream
