    I am in TEXAS :) DFW area the headquarters are out west of Fortworth in Weatherford TX but most of the work is OK and West TX... they will put me up in an apartment in the area I will be working likely midland tx area plus a starting and training pay of $20 an hour plus overtime and home time out two weeks home one week
    I am excited but I dont start the wireline part till January in the meantime They will get back to me about work before that driving Hot Shot for them in midland and they will still give me an apartment.

    and as for scared :D my mom was in the airforce during vietnam and was later a missileer she had the key to the switch for a Titan II nuclear intercontinental ballistic missile down in a missile silo in fact she was working down in it up to the day she gave birth to me... I know I can do anything because I was made human not a gender but a person in god's creation :) I am very proud of her and she is not the only one in my family of women that went into the military even back then... I can do anything and I am looking forward to using my degree in physics at work not just analyzing data in a cubical
