normally I wouldn't recommend north dakota, however Dickinson is in a very nice area of the state, from a quick look at google maps. Lake right there, some scenic bluffy grasslands to the west not far. Right along the interstate. It's definitely cold there, but better then the east half of the state for sure. I'd say live with your husband, right in Dickinson.

Good # of English folks I am acquainted with that love the Northern Black Hills. Also a lot of peeps in our area that do the 7 days on 7 days off thing between here and different parts of ND.
Just a thought though.

If the Black Hills was too far, I would simply suggest the Dickinson area since there is as much or more to offer there as anywhere in western SD outside of the Hills. I understand housing is a tough to find in the Balken oil region though.

Good luck.

What does your husband do? As far as North Dakota towns Dickenson is ducky with me. I also don't mind Bismark in small doses.
