  This Sunday, Oct. 28, 2012 photo provided by Dan Manjack shows Manjack with equipment used in his general contracting company in Williston, N.D. Four years ago, Manjack was scraping by, a Florida building contractor struggling to stay afloat in a state drowning in foreclosures. But he traded his 1,800-square-foot Florida condo for a 40-foot motor home and 16-hour work days, far from his kids in Texas. But he has no regrets. Friends who told him he was crazy to go now call, looking for jobs. (AP Photo/Dan Manjack)
