Hi All,

I was recently given the opportunity to become a contractor at a new job. I would be paid $9,000/mo and clear almost $4,000 after expenses, taxes, etc.

My current job pays me a lot less. $4300/mo of which I keep about $2100 after expenses.

The catch is I'd be working away 3 weeks out of 4 in a very remote corner of the world. 10+ hour days. The nearest civilization is about a 4hr drive away.

There's no wife, kids or other relationship ties to keep me here. Simply the 3 weeks of nothing else to do.

Thoughts?
