I've tried to find one of these 6 spots empty on 4 separate occasions in the past 6 weeks with no luck. To a casual observer it looks like the same 6 rigs are there permanently. The large friendly looking overflow lot is permanently blocked off, so no luck there. Its a 10 mile or so trip each way to get here if you're traveling on highway 2, with bad roads in Minot itself, so it seems like a long drive just to be disappointed. It sure would be nice if someone saw fit to add some spaces!
