strayan' rollin into alberta today

Heya! I'm currently about an hour from the border in Omak, WA. Im planning on riding up to Calgary and finding a job - I'm a tube fitter/machinist/welder with mining and oil and gas EXP - if you know of any jobs going.

Any suggestions on places to look for work or must see places along the way. Definitely be keen to go for a ride or a beer if anyone else is. My ride report is in my signature, I've ridden from LA to here.

cheers, Will!

Edmonton may be a better choice than Calgary for your skillset. Most of the fab shops and yards for the patch are in Edmonton. Good Luck.

calgary is more white collar, edmonton blue. You will find work pretty easy as a tradesman here. Fort Mac is another 6 hours north of Edmonton but a lot of work up there is union.

Good luck in your search. I'm sure you'll find something quickly. Better buy a cage if you're thinking you'll be up there long
