For sure you have to sleep with the blankets over your head too. Today it snowed all day long and most of the business's (oil offices) if not all were closed for the weekend. However, I met a few people that work in the oil fields. I got a few numbers and tips on where to hit up when the offices open on Monday. Today was sure a morale booster.
I'm sorry. I live in Wyoming and I really wonder what you are thinking about, living in your car in ND during the winter. I've had to live in my car when I was snow bound and trapped a few times in my life. It is not something a person wants to do.

But to willingly do that in the winter, is a fools choice. A night, yes. More then a night, an idiot. You will be dead before you know it.

With respects he is not a idiot. He is taking a risk at this time of year but sometimes people don't have control over that. It is easy to say "wait til spring" but how do you know anyones situations? What if they need the money NOW? He, like many others, are there looking for a job not hanging around for the thrill of it. People who go into beyond freezing mountains for the thrill are they idiots? No instead people praise them and give them awards. These people are at least looking for work. And at least he does have his car what if he didn't?

I agree with you laina. I dont think SoCal is an idiot, neither the dozens or hundreds of people doing the same thing.

God Bless them and God Bless those of us that are about to do the same very thing.

Hey, glad to see you are ok, and that things are looking up. A few of us were a lil worried, weather being so cold. Networking is a major help in oilfield, especially in a small place like Williston. Good job

I didn't say he was an idiot. I said that to do that would be a fools choice and to do it more then once would take an idiot.

I have done it. But only for a night. To do it longer would be foolish. So take it for what it's worth. If you want to be an idiot, go for it.
