I tried forever to get into the patch. Everyone wanted someone with experience. I finally gave up and started a hotshot company, made good money after a few month but I had to spend a lot of time on the road, had three truck's running and wasn't too hard to make 1000-1500 a day. Had a son on the way so needed to be home so I sold my contracts and started a small logging business. Easy $1000 a day there. Made cash and put money back then the spring rains set in and now I'm staying at home with my son while the wife works. She's a business banker, makes $87,000 a year salary plus quarterly bonuses(last was $3000). She works 8:30 to 4 Monday through Friday. Oilfield is a good gig but it isn't the only place to make a good living
