I spent most of last winter up there , 70 days on in a row ... zero days off !!
I picked up & moved to Panama right after that , Summer 24 - 7 here !!
Looks like I will be back up there in a couple of months , 5 year gig & I should never have to work again ... Ever !!

What do you do that you only have to work 5 more years? Or is the cost of living that reasonable in Panama?
