There were 7 of us living in a 3 bedroom apartment near South Gate Mall, I was lucky to sleep on the inflatable mattress when my buddy went outta town, I usually slept on the floor. This was one of the contributing factors to me moving the fuck back to Halifax after 6 months but the point of this post is that you guys have to hustle harder, don't worry so much about potential road blocks like leases and furniture.

Your first few months out west will probably suck!

I'm gonna write a big post here soon enough.

I agree with you. A wise man once said "There is no progress without struggle". I wouldn't mind living with like minded oilfield oriented RFV members, we'll see how this will work because personally I am already in Edmonton and have a good shared place to live in NW, no lease commitments though.
