We are thinking about moving from Ga to North Dakota. My husband is an electrician, so we would like to live where he may not have to far to drive but we do not want to be in a big city. We have 2 kids in school, 7th and 11th and would love to have them in the same school. Could someone give me a few city names that I could check into... we would like to stay on the south - west side.. I heard it is a little less frigid there.

Bismarck is the state capital, and is south central. It's a little over 60,000 in the city proper. Dickinson is smaller, about 18,000, and home to Dickinson State University.

I guess it depends whereabouts in GA you are from-ATL, Athens, Rome, Albany, or somewhere completely rural-as far as what sort of population you are looking for.

If your children are interested in college, be sure to check into the University of Southern North Dakota at Hoople.

It's an apparently well-known joke.

There are no "big" cities in ND western side especially. Outside of Dickinson and Williston there is generally one elementary and one high school but the schools are sometimes consolidated - meaning it may be a town or two away. As far as frigid goes, if your coming from GA it's pretty much all the same. Don't let the reputation scare you too much. It's manageable. But then I've been here all my life lol. You'll be fine. Side-note I love to hear about people wanting to move their family here. About time.

When you arrive in ND, you will need to register with the state and city for electrical license. I have a electrician friend in a small town of 2,000 and one of the richest people in town being the only electrician. If you get the master electrician, that would be of great benefit to you.

magiccity...does it take long to register? If he has his license here does it transfer or will he have to do something to get one there? He did call one company to try to talk to them but the lady on the phone was rude and did not help at all.

If things don't work out well, he can come to Jamestown and start working right away.

Default Son has been in Williston ND for about two years

He was born and raised In Athens. Was working the second day after arrival. Hard work and except for the cold is a good place for a young healthy family. If you have a skill jobs are plentiful.
