My wife and I moved to Odessa about a month ago, and we love this place! I’ve been through two booms and busted out each time so we aren’t driven by the big money which is here in abundance. After working in the food ministry in Tennessee for the past year, it is certainly a breath of fresh air to see jobs everywhere and happy, prosperous people. I was in town less than twelve hours and found what I can only describe as the perfect job; working as a gunsmith in a West Texas gun shop.
All of the old timers talk about the boom and bust cycles, and they all say that another bust will come. When is the question.
