Man-Camps

I really am fascinated by the news that Marcellus Shale drillers are building and opening Man-Camps in Pennsylvania.  They sure do look stark and very temporary and are said to be gated communities.

There is so much to comment on you almost don't know where to begin.  First off, what do you need to gate yourself off from in Bradford County?  The Elk? Bears?  Deer?  Locals?

and I was just wondering about something.  No doubt it is mostly men working these rigs, but are there any women at all?  Never see any pictures in the media with any women out working the Mighty Marcellus.  Without any data I am aware of to confirm or deny this, I was just wondering if there are (proportionally) fewer women taking part in the vast Marcellus play than say there are female Marines in combat in Afghanistan? That would be a pretty amazing factoid to come up with?  Anyone have data on the gender balance in the rig crews that everyone says is the #1 economic story in Pennsylvania?  The excuse I hear why so many out of state workers are here is that it is so hard to recruit the necessary worker locally.  You would think that would increase the opportunity for local women to participate, or is this just one of those occupations that women can't break into?

Survey anyone?

I remember some great magazine story describing Iraq as a "Man-Dance".

Unctuous bafflegab and more? How about "vacuous"?

I've come across a few justifications for happening upon a running truck in the twilight, full of sleeping roughnecks: they will work everyday; they stay onsite until their objective is met; when they arrive onsite, they arrive with the clothes on the back, crammed in one vehicle, with their own tools, one phone to the bunch, few possessions, a faint recollection of a wife, and kids that call them sir.

Harsh, yessur...
