    I posted here on the forums 11/01/2011 about a job offer I received from Halliburton: (You can see here) <Click it! I had done my research back as far as May of 2011 and knew this was a field for me to get a head in life. I was in Seattle Wa working a dead end job, supporting my family; and could feel the wind calling my name with each breeze. I had the plan, and decided to go for it, and set off to Pampa Tx Population 16,000. We ended up living in Amarillo population 300K.

    After 2 years I could see the storms on the horizon for the Anadarko Fields and Decided to hid further South to Eagle Ford with Family in tow behind me. Even with my Son's protest. 10 Months later, and with 100K under my belt I looked more like a wiser man. Though again the storm came, and nor would they stop. I decided in January this would be my last stand; as I promised to allow them to Graduate High School here. The day of reckoning is upon me, and the Journey Ends with Halliburton. I have no Ill will, or thoughts and have benefited immensely from the relationship. States that I had only passed through in the past, and this time I learned names of places, people in Oklahoma, Texas, North Dakota and Saskatchewan CA.

    Don't feel bad for me because like the Phoenix from the Ashes I shall arise again! Planning and fore sight has always been a talent for me. It's only been the last 6 months I have realized it, with the help of a friend. Just in case your wondering what the letter looks like here it is.

    my dad used to haul frac at marcellus shale area. used to avg $6000-$7000 as a o/o. Had to leave his frac hauling because they pay less and no more work for it.
