you planning on living in an apartment? cause its gunna be real hard to find a house. living expenses are high here too. but better pay. big methane and coal boom here, so lots of jobs but no houses. not sure what else you might want to know about. I do know a few people that work for BN. Neil Kubbera, Merle Ruppert.

Yeah I have cousins that live in Wright WY. Aunts and Uncles in Upton. Housing has always been a huge issue out there. Never seem to be enough especially when oil and gas are hot. Yeah uncles told me they are drilling hundreds of wells to pull gas off the coal seams. Worked the Williston Basin and overthrust down near Evanston after college no figg'in housing then either![8D]

Laramie is about 5 hours south of Gillette. Gillette sits about 4000 ft in elevation. But the mts that are 50 miles west are about 8000 feet.

Sledme2 Man I wish I was there right now.I have been watching that storm you guys are getting. Its totally gunna miss the horns. [:(] looks like another foot and more is on the way too. If I didnt have a snowmobile trip planned already I would get ahold of you and go down there. tare it up for me.
