These videos were recorded in and around Christmas 1994 and New Year's Eve of that year. The crew, Rees 2, were camped at Sadad in central Oman.
These videos will bring back memories for all those doodlebuggers who worked in seismic when we young, worked hard and played hard. This was when there was cameradie, teamwork, high spirits, fun, laughter and hangovers!
It was a time when crew members were not distracted by the internet or TV after work (if we were lucky we had newspapers and a few VHS video casettes and our state of the art Sony Walkman CASETTE Players).
Instead of endless monologues at evening operations meetings, we exercised and/or, went to the crew bar where stories of the day's work and what would be important for the next day were exchanged in a relaxed atmosphere. We all knew what the operational and safety issues of the day were because we COMMUNICATED freely without the formality of a meeting.
This was a time that many of us long to re-live! Its a time that is now long gone..........a bygone era!
