I'm using duffle bags to take advantage of every inch of space available in the car.

I have three solid offers and I also have other interviews lined up if one of the three don't pan out. I have friends working man camps and he's staying in Killdeer, I will use that as my backup of backups.

I was offered a supervisor position for a large commercial metal building contractor in Bismarck, that is my first stop as the construction starts next week if I accept the position.

I imagine your long out from your visit in TN by now, Should be all smooth sailing for you,mostly all flat land once your a little farther north, Were getting a lot of rain up here in MN but shouldnt affect U. word of caution watch your speed thru Iowa. there Anal. Theres a great short cut coming out of the south you may already be taking but once your around St Louis youll be taking 27 /218/380/218/18: to 35w going north then your about 20 miles from the MN border in IA. You kind of have to watch close for the changes of 218/ to 380/ then back to 218 or you will be taking a little unnessary Detour. Ive done it more than once. for a good place to rest theres a good rest area 5 miles before the mn border on 35w in IA. might be exit 5. But you can crash out there as long as you would need. right in the same lot there is a gas station with food a huge hotel and a big Casino with great Buffet. Called Diamond Jo's Casino. From there your only about 8 to 9 hrs from Bismarck,ND 2hrs north on 35 pickup 94 in Minneapolis down the street from where i live and its a straight shot to Bismarck. Keep us posted.
