When your on the East Coast and everyone bitches about the cold weather, you can laugh, "cold this aint cold, I know cold let me tell you........"
Just after tech school I got a job offer from Wedgcor?(steel building company) to be a drafter in Jamestown. Isn't the Harley rakes made there, too? Was a nice place but I'm not a cowboy so went back to Wisconsin. My friend settled in Ashley, supposed to go visit sometime.

Good advice guys, I will be renting so I don't have to worry about repairs, just if I bust it in the begginning and they cant get it fixed for me that would suck! I will be careful though.

My wife is in Minot right now and she says its booming... Oil or Ethanol... something is going nuts up there right now I dont remember what.
