I just sent mail to a marine institute to ask about courses for jobs in the oil and gas industry.
Last night, we had a pow wow at my house. Two of my colleagues came over and we spoke to my brother and some of his friends throughout the night. Incidentally, my brother's friends also work in oil and gas and also work off shore.
My mind is more or less made up. One of my colleague is still thinking about it but the other one has made his mind up too. The question now is when.
I have a masterplan. If everything goes as planned I should be able to quit in 5-6 years and have enough money to be comfortable.
There will be hard decisions to make in the next few days.
