Rojoe on the Road 2011-2012 travel blog

The turn in the state campground was a little tight.

Joe is so good at getting us out of difficult situations. Turtle...

Rugby, North Dakota is the geographical center of North America.


Thursday, September 29, 2011 We left Mahnomen, MN around 8:00 and that was really good for us. It was a beautiful day and it finally felt like we were going to make it to Rugby, ND. We decided to find someplace to have lunch and turned into Turtle River State Park in Arvilla, ND. The ranger assured us that the park was equipped for big rigs so we got a day pass and looked for a good place to eat our lunch. We found ourselves in a tight situation sandwich between a couple of trees. There was no reason to get excited so we disconnected the car and Joe backed up and got us unstuck. When we traveled through the area of North Dakota by Devils' Lake, we were surprised to see farms that were still under water. We encountered many big trucks carrying loads of dirt and stone. They are trying to build higher roads and levees around Devil's Lake that continues to rise. The hotel and campground where we are staying told us that they have been full with people that have been flooded out and workers that are trying to correct the situation. We had no idea.
