You could always try one of the smaller roustabout companies, if a felony prevents you from working with one of the large companies.

If the felony is not a serious one I wouldn' be worried. Although seriously am not sure though.....Are you going to apply or going to stay there? Can you come here after and let know how it went and all so I/we can have an idea....Thanks....

Default YO Guys

Seems alot of people are interested in going up to wiliston, I believe that from what I read that Dickinson and some other areas are hiring as well with maybe more housing choices. It also seems that most of us are limited on funds. I am thinking that it might be prudent/cost effective for some to think about rooming together in an extended stay hotel or apartment/condo setup. I am not familiar with the man camps..does anyone know if your rooming with people and what do you store your stuff and for that matter what should you bring bunch a clothes or clothes for a week or more. Thanx for any answers...jim PS I think we on this forum have a kindred spirit being on this forum alone so to speak I think it would be cool to help each other out and have 'friends" before or when we get there.
