Oil rig work/ Job

Texas oil rig worker: ok....I will try to make this quick. Current network engineer for the past 12 years, completely burnt out. I have decided I want to work on a rig doing tough, hard, labor and work my way up from the bottom. No experience whatsoever in this realm or any manual labor. However, I'm in shape, physically strong, and a very hard worker. I'm looking ideally for an entry level (rig hand, floorhand, etc...whatever) where I work 1 or 2 weeks on and the same off, or something like that.

I've been looking for just about two months now, countless applications, calls, emails, etc....and I just can't get a bite. User on meta atchafalaya has been a huge help, but like I said I can't find anyone to give me a chance. Any other suggestions, tips, leads,etc? Sorry this is long winded just really want a chance to get on the rig and out of the office.
