Who works weird hours?

I have to work nights (7PM to 7AM) a few times a month and my sleep pattern gets out of whack. When I'm on this forum at odd hours, I still see at least a few on here with me. So I'm wondering, What the hell are you guys doing up? Weird work schedule?

same boat (1800-0600). I'm the guy they call when someone is sick or they need an extra body. But all will change on July 10th. My last day, then I go training for my new job on Aug 2. Can't wait.

I work two weeks on and two weeks off.... I work 6:00pm till 6:00am, seven days a week when I'm on. I work north of the Arctic Circle at a work camp on the Oil Pipeline. I had been working the same schedule except in town for about four years. After to many complaints about me driving to fast at work the mucky muck decided that they would send me up north to where I would not be doing to much driving....... It is sweet having two weeks off each month but it sucks being away from home the other two weeks Here is a pic from last week of me (in town) by the 800 mile pipe that moves oil from the North Slope to Valdez
