    Fargo is a pretty nice town if you like a lot of people... well away fromall the oil drilling...

    It is located on the Red River in the Red River Valley, some of the bestagricultural land in the World and mostly used for sugar beets... Thelandowners over there probably won't let you drive all over their property, butit never hurts to ask...

    The area around Fargo is very different from the western part of the state. It’srelatively close to Minneapolis/st. Paul so it feels more connected to theworld. It is also really flat...

    It can get pretty cold up here, most of the winter temps are at or below zero.Last winter was kind of a dud, it didn't even show up. Maxamillion is right...a lot of people in oil country usually do leave when it gets cold. Probably notso many leave the eastern part of the state...

    The best advice I can give for someone from the south looking to move uphere... Carhart, a block heater, and never let your gas tank get below half...

    If you have any specific questions pm me,,,

    Yeah heard it was snowing yesterday in Williston and today too I guess.

    Also, how does concrete work in the winter? I understand that it's pretty well a no go until it warms up?

    ^^ lol Yeah, I'm watching a lot of of interviews from workers, and there seems to be a lot of $$ and a ton of work in the area. No single women, unfortunately, damnit. You from around there?

    It depends on what you do for work. Plenty of oppurtunities in Bis. Better housing situation as well... The oil activites themselves aren't bad, I'm a huge supporter.. its the people it brings to the state.

    You sound right on the money from what I've been hearing from others. Have to head to Williston, though, in the coming weeks, just not for too long, thankfully. Thanks for the insight! And stay warm, b/c it looks freezing all the time!! lol

    This Williston place is nuts. Nice blizzard yesterday. Lots of women, a small handful could be attractive, and all are taken. Not enough places to eat, nothing healthy, nothing to do but drink at another bar. Hm. Most of the locals are kickass, though! I really like the people. I actually like it, but wouldn't want to live here.

    So I have the possibility of getting orders to Minot. Just browsing through and preparing myself for ND. I have heard nothing but bad things but Im keeping an open mind. What all is there to do? Badlands seem nice.

    I couldn't find a whole lot to do but there is a lot of water up there. It's going to be cold as fuck in the winter, decent summer. Minot has everything you need.

    I think the badlands are pretty far. Lots of farmland and water around you and not a whole lot else, no where I could find to off road in any decent way, there are dirt farm roads and such but... all private land too hard to shoot. May be some exploring to be had south of Watford city but I never got to.

    But really if you're gonna be in ND at least it's Minot.
