Here is a cheeky interview about their thoughts on the FIFO lifestyle.

Mining has given our family a good life; it is not for everyone and not everyone understands the sacrifices that are made by the partners/wives who stay at home to hold the fort

What’s a fun fact about you : I speak three languages

What is the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning : Listen to the birds wake up & I think about all the things I am grateful for this day … then I roll over and hug and kiss my man (if he is there)

When you’re having a bad day, what do you do to make yourself feel better : Go for a walk or do something creative

What are you known for in your circle of friends : I am very energetic and always doing something fun, playful or different.

Would you rather have more time or more money : More money

If your life was a movie, what would it be called : Lord of the Rings

What would your advice be to your child wanting to enter the FIFO lifestyle : Make home time about being present

Who would win in an arm wrestle? A dump truck driver or a boiler maker : Truck driver
