Its not as cushy as its made out to be..... long days and about 1 day of suntan a week if you are lucky.... its hard work but good if you want to sit in an apt in front of a pc and data input all day for the experience!! :angel3:
Hard work out there - did time there when in MTO branch. Forget illusions of a holiday - its an average 12-14 hour day, with a routine that quickly becomes dull - go to ports, come back, have lunch, go to ports, come back, do more NAMESIS, go to dinner, go to more NAMESIS, go to bed.
1/2 a day a week off if you're lucky, and the work is hard.
Total respect for the people who've been out there- they've done an excellent job, got a lot of respect from the community and are a great asset.
Where do the MTOs get mobilised, and for how long?
Also if you take an FTRS does this count in the same way as mobilisation that it can only happen once every 3 years, or could you find yourself in a position where you volunteer for an FTRS and then 2 months later get mob'd?
