Jun 25, 2017 - Back in the USA!!!

Safely through US customs into North Dakota with a quite serious and grumpy yet very professional border control agent scrutinizing our every move; no jokes, wise cracks or funny jesters allowed. Trump is serious with tightening the borders! While the country changed, the scenery remains the same....miles and miles of canola, grain and farm crops with occasional oil wells. Sunny skies supported a picnic lunch at a local city park bench. Stopped after a long day of 10 hours and 450 miles at the cheapest hotel in town... $65!!

Aug 13, 2015 - Thief River Falls, MN

Thu, 13 Aug: A shake of the dice and a different plan of the day... That's what full-timing is all about. Well, our plan for the day called for us to head to Great Forks ND and overnite at the Wal*Mart. In fact, that was what was programmed into our GPS units. Bob drove the first leg and Sandi the second. By the time Sandi took the helm it was already in the eighties with highs forecast for the nineties. We enjoy boondocking, except when it is very hot and the lack of air conditioning becomes a big negative. So, Bob did some research and...

Going West 2014

May 23, 2011 - Thief River Falls, Minnesota

Come On Inn! We are on the home stretch now…….after riding in the rain off and on all day. We left Bergland at 9:30 am and rode through a couple of rainstorms, until we reached Thief River Falls, Minnesota at 4 pm. We decided to stop for one last night, and so checked into the Come On Inn. At least they have a pool and hot tub for our old, chilled, tired bones. This 10 month trip is coming to an end. :(
