Made it back yesterday after 2100 miles in three days.  The interview went well.  The only thing that I am worried about is my traffic tickets.  If I had a perfect driving record I know I would have the job locked up.  Now I just wait to hear what they decided.

Many oil and gas companies now are hiring ex and retired military for line security....."Gas Line Police"......and some of the northern companies are hiring "animal" relief personnel to keep the workers safe from bears and other animals....

I read something about this a while back....will try and find it again...

The speeding tickets simply prove you are the man if pursuit is needed.  Think positive 8)

They made me a contingent job offer.  That is the good part.  The part I need to figure out now is where I'm gonna live.  The bad part is that since the job is in North Dakota, my family will stay here in Missouri for the first year or so since I will be kept very, very busy. I will probably end up selling my motorcycle to be able to buy a travel trailer to live in for the time being.  I really don't want to do it but I can't live in a tent or support two separate households for at least a year.

Glad you found gainfull employment!
There are a lot of travel trailers out there so if you're not looking to live in the 'Taj Mahal'  you can probably get one for pretty cheap.  They
depreciate very very quickly so don't look at it as an investment.  Since it's North Dakota the winters are Canadian-like.  Real friggin cold.  Smaller trailer means less heat required.  Spend a bunch of money on spray urethane insulation.  You'll have all summer to figure that out though.

Congrats on the job offer JM. That's tough about having to live for a while without your family and selling the bike.    :o

As Connie1 said, a trailer in the ND winter is gonna be seriously tough!

I still have a couple other options and the idea of having a roommate is far from ideal but maybe I will get lucky and find a normal person who just wants to rent a room on the cheap.
