If I was 27 and looking for something new...

I would pack up and head to North Dakota. Find a job site and fill out an app. Pass the drug test and go to work! Entry level I bet you can make 40k easy up there. If you have a knack for it you can job hop and make 60 first year. 3 years from now, making 80.

Of course that assumes you don't die in a horrible rig explosion or a bar fight. Or, after your bank account is flush, fly "home" and go carousing with your old buddies, chase college girls for three days, and end up in jail, spending it all on lawyers. All avoidable! Don't ask me how I know.
