Crude: The Bakken Fossil Fuel Frontier
North Dakota, USA
In 2015, the story was this: a massive migration to the post-peak-oil frontier, recession-proof, $20/hr McDonald’s jobs, and gas flares that can be seen from space. We kept hearing about it, reading occasional news clips, and soon enough we were watching YouTube videos about how to get jobs in the oil patch, how to live in a man camp, how to live out of your truck in a Wal-Mart parking lot until you could get a job and score a spot in a man camp; videos of exploding gas well heads, eighteen-wheelers flipped over in pristine snowbanks. All in the endless landscape of the Bakken Formation in North Dakota. 

We decided we’d go too.

Pan is the chillest Greek dude. While everyone else is in the temple, Pan’s holding it down in the woods, hosting epic parties, making sure everyone’s goblet is full, and getting laid. He’s enjoying the pre-industrial night air, cracking jokes, and jamming on his flute. But sometimes, all his friends go home. Sometimes, Pan wakes up in the morning, alone in the forest – confused, hungover, depressed – and he cries out. “Panic.”

One panics when they feel lost and confused in nature.
