I got a job offer from Haliburton in Wyoming to work on the oil fields as an electronics tech/computer guy. Just about doubled my pay.

A little apprehensive about leaving my home base of El Paso for a town of 19k, but the money will be good. I do not know my internet connectivity situation for the next 3 weeks, maybe longer. While i have been scarce lately, i have enjoyed reading everyones journals.

What you have to take into account is that a town of 19k in WY is a BIG CITY - maybe the biggest in 100 miles, which means it will have a lot more amenites than a town of 19k in TX might have.

I do not know my internet connectivity situation for the next 3 weeks, maybe longer.

As for Internet connectivity - I'm sure you will have some at work, and if the town is on an Interstate (both the 19k towns in the state are) - I'd expect the hotel/motel to have broadband.

If you end up settling there - I think you might have only a limited [everythingdsl.com] selection [everythingdsl.com] finding a provider of residential broadband - but there should be many choices for dial-up.

yay! (1)
