If you've had your face in computer game you may not have noticed the black gold rush going on. For Canada it's all about Fort Macmurray In the states it's fracking in the Dakotas. Huge money for hard work. No reason why you cant peel back a couple of hundred thou clear in less than two years. Apparently many following this thread find them though. I'm a bit slow out the gate on this rush but had my licks on the Arctic oil boom back in the 80's .I'd already built my boat and picked scrap metal and bottles to pay the 12 grand it cost me. It was a great chick magnet so I was motivated. My later motivation was more fiscal than physical but reasonably successful also. I know it can be done , boys and girls, What's your dream?
