He is a heavy hauler mechanic who repairs the giant tar sands trucks. I met him in Fort McMurray where he was a lodger working 21 days on and seven off. At 4.30am every morning he carved out some personal time at the kitchen table until 7am when he is picked up for work, he was home at 8pm and in bed by 9pm. He sometimes went to Saskatchewan to visit his wife and two children but after his first two days at home he would start to feel uncomfortable and drive the long way back and fill his remaining days by fixing cars. He hoped that although he felt estranged from his family that at least the money he was saving would help them with university or a down payment on a home. He had very few possessions and although he was tempted to buy a big truck he simultaneously thought it was a waste of money.
