Heather Nehring and her four sisters grew up in the quiet, bucolic enclave of Williston, North Dakota.Virtually overnight her hometown was overrun by a 21st century oil boom as technology caught up to the Bakken oil deposit, and new fracking techniques started bringing 640 square miles of oil to the surface.
There’s no word yet on whether the show will be picked up, so in the meantime Heather will keep driving her truck, and stay alert in the frenzied traffic plying the roads of Williston.
“It’s not if I get into a wreck,” she says. “It’s when.”
Heather brought her camera along to work on Monday March 26 and took the following shots for Business Insider.
I get up at about 6:30 a.m. which is a terrible, terrible time of day for me. But this is where I start my truck and let it warm up for a bit every morning.
My first stop of the day is a rig move. This is a picture of the derrick with a drilling rig being laid over.
When my boyfriend Casey gets home from work, I help him put on the new custom fender for his motorcycle.
This evening we met with the contractor for our new house. This will soon be the view from our living room window.
I love spending time with my amazing boyfriend, but my night would not be complete without theCHIVE! KCCO everyone!!
