Brian Crossman: Thanksgiving in the oilpatch

But it in these moments in the oilpatch when you find pain and adversity, you also find strength. I am always amazed how humans can not only survive these difficult times, but persevere and become stronger in spite of it all. The times you spend 14 hours on the rig grinding it out, coming home dragging your ass like an “FNG” will tire you out beyond belief. But guess what? You are now stronger, smarter and better for it.
