We have decided to travel to Texas to join the Gate Guard crowd. I know it is HOT down there but we survived 110deg in ElPaso one summer and can probably handle the same in TX. I've read a lot about the jobs on various forums and many blogs so most of my questions have been answered on the TX front. But what about the ND oil fields. That area has been booming with drilling rigs yet I never see jobs posted for gate guards in that area. Is there anyone out there that works for them or knows of anyone who does gate guarding in ND?

Can't answer your question, but the biggest problem is where to stay. All campgrounds for 100+ miles are full, full, full. The local authorities have now started limiting the number of RVs that can be parked on fields (three per farm I think) and the local Wal-Mart, etal, have gone to towing RVs to keep the parking lots clear for actual customers.

When someone tells you to buy the same rig they own, listen, they might be right. When they tell you to buy a different rig then they own, really pay attention, they probably know something you don't.

I know Gate Guard Services was exploring the ND & WY area, for possible expansion into that region. You might contact them and see if they did. I do know they are in TX, OK, MS and LA now.
