North Dakota relocation coming....

Gang,
I've been offered an amazing job working the gas fields of North Dakota.
Seems my buddy who's already there ha been telling stories about me to his honchos, and they called me for an interview today.
They made me an offer I can't refuse, so now I go about figuring out how to make it happen.
In doing my research, I have learned that the housing situation is beyond ridiculous, and finding a place for 2 horses, 3 dogs, my girlfriend, and I is something beyond a trick.
We're working on getting a self contained trailer for us to live in, but a place to park it is another story.
Anyone in that area that would like to make some extra money by letting us shack up on a small corner of dirt for ourselves and our critters?
Thanks in advance!

I can't believe that NOBODY on here can point me in the right direction on this concept.
Really gang? Surely SOMEONE has ideas that might lead to a good opportunity

Interesting considering how many gas producers in Montana are being shut-in because of the market price. Most of those in ND are flaring from lack of pipelines and again, market prices.

As far as moving families and animals here, I wish you the best. However, housing at this point is practically non-existent and extremely expensive. One that would be large enough for a family and animals will be hard to come by. I'm surprised the company offering the job doesn't have housing available for you. Many have that or at least temporary housing and people to find you a place to live.

I get calls every week about boarding. The flooding last year displaced many horses and shut down some large facilities, so it is tough to find as well. I am glad that you have a job in place before packing up and moving though. Every day someone comes to the place I work looking to get hired because they heard ND had high paying jobs and not enough to fill the need.


Anyway, good luck!
