Going To Work In The Bakken Oil Field In North Dakota #3

Well I have made it out to North Dakota finally (20hr, 1360mi). Lots of traffic and lots of people. Housing seems rough but there are places to live or rent in some man camps and other public housing. I have several options as far as that goes, I just need the $$$ to start flowing before I can move in. More videos on the way so stay tuned and subscribe!!!

Author BigCat1165 (2 years)
@pantherpawz most of the man camps here are owned by companies, so only
emploies are allowed to stay there. There is one place in watford city that
is open to the public. They charge $1750.00 a month for a 30' trailer...
You best bet is to wait till after the winter. I have been here sense the
8th and have been living in my car.

Hey Big cat, Hope you find something with a camp soon Brother. Man you are
a trailblazer,I am glad to know ya. I have had two company's tell me I can
fly up and they will pick me up put me in a camp for the hiring process.
but just don't think I can be without my wheels. Did you get that company
name I sent you and do you want me to keep helping you looking from here?
some times the more eyes the better. Stay warm and keep the faith. I am
feeling the anxiety for you.
