Marching Orders

I've had an email telling me to expect to travel to Denmark on January 3rd. I've been assigned to the Ensco 71 jackup, drilling an oil well for Maersk. It's quite apt because the first rig I ever worked on (back in '96) was the Ensco 80.

I've been informed that it's a bit old but a recent refit saw 2-man rooms, with ensuite toilets/showers, installed in the accomodation deck. The food is supposed to be quite good too, but as it is drilling for a Danish company I'm half expecting loads of smoked fish. There's at least one Internet connection in the rec room, and I might even have web access in the unit.
