Bakken Patch

In the Willisten, N.D., area the past two days. Amazing! Haven't seen so many pickups in one area ever.

Appears that any flat ground with a water supply and soil that will pass a perk test for a septic system is growing RV trailers. Hundreds of RV trailers.

What a contrast between the 100+ year old farms and the oil infrastructure. Kind of like an Amish buggy in front of a refinery.

A job is a precious thing today but I wouldn't want to spend a North Dakota winter in a twenty foot travel trailer.

North dakota Can be very beautiful, west of fargo. The people are a little rude though, no sense of humor.
