The Big Decision

It was tough, but I have decided to finish my project in Jubail, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA). Over 18 months have been spent designing this chemical plant and I feel compelled to see it to the end. My wife, Susan, and I have discussed this and the separation for 12 - 18 months and she has been very supportive of me. My family and friends are surprised and think that I am doing it for the money. But something inside me wants to see this extreme effort to its end. It will be a challenge.
The physical exam was passed, the chemical screening no problem, and completing the paperwork for the visa included a letter from the sheriff that I am a member of good standing in my community and another that bringing drugs into KSA is punishable by death. All that is left is the actual filing with the KSA Embassy.
