Wesley, this RR is amazing, truly amazing. Your sense of adventure is amazing, and your experiences with strangers (but quickly they turn to friends) excites me and invigorates my view of the good in humanity.
I see you are into the rope work on the rigs. Have you ever worked ropes with a chap from the states named Eric P? Blonde hair guy, big into rock climbing. He is from New Jersey, but was living in Thailand and now lives in Barcelona, but often works the rigs either in the Middle East or the North Sea.
