Rover Boys were a crack team of petroleum geologists, exploring the world for the last large surface discoveries of petroleum. This team went anywhere and everywhere. They smoked camel dung and used whiskey as a lion repellent...they were built for adventure. But during their time, the industry transitioned offshore and there was no longer room left for the Rover Boys. In today's episode, we talk to David Kingston who led the real Rover Boys.
