Aug 3, 2014 - Bismark, ND.

Yesterday on our way home from Mandan we caught a glimpse of an art fair. Last night on the news they were showing some of the vendors. It was held on the capital building grounds. We spent the afternoon walking around looking at the art and crafts. They also had a car show for just Ford vehicles. The only thing we bought was 'Lefse'. A Norwegian crepe made out of potato. You put butter and sugar on it and roll it up, it looks like a skinny burrito only it's a very yummy Norwegian desert. It is a very popular desert for them, especially at...

Aug 1, 2014 - Bismarck, ND.

Another short drive to Bismarck..about 144 miles. We are staying at a city park campground. It is a very popular campground with the locals and arriving on Friday wasn't the best plan. We got one of the last sites. The park has 114 sites - all full for the weekend. It has lots of green spaces and it is spread out. We only have electric which is not a problem for us since we are self contained. Electric runs the air conditioning during the heat of the day and that is all we really need. Or should I say that the dogs enjoy it while we are out...

Even though we are making a "beeline" for Texas, we are still enjoying the sights as we go. One thing I wanted to share is that we drove through Bismarck today and saw the North Dakota State Capitol, the tallest building in the state... the building is 19 stories. Ok... all you New Yorkers stop laughing. Happy Travels, Rebecca

Jun 29, 2014 - Bismark, ND

Lots of rain overnight. Forgot to change our clocks. Ended up, we were on the road by 5 to 7. Drove into another storm front. Coming out of that, we battled strong cross winds most of the morning. After lunch, head winds and cross winds the rest of the day. Long driving day. Pulled into the Bismarck KOA just after 4 without a reservation and got an overfill site. It's 9:30 (still daylight)and the flags are straight out with the wind. Shorter travel day tomorrow to Billings Montana. Be nice if the weather cooperated.

Our Dakotas Trip

Jun 14, 2014 - Bismark, North Dakota

Today is Saturday June 14 and Ross and Marge arrived in Bismarck, North Dakota around noon time on Friday after leaving Casselton, North Dakota at about 0900 Friday morning. Friday morning Ross went on his morning three mile walk and he enjoyed the walk as the weather was cool and the wind was only a slight breeze. After breakfast and showering Ross & Marge got the rig ready for the days drive. They left the campground and headed for the highway where they found the road surface to be in very good condition and the wind was still only a...

Today we left Montana and drove through North Dakota winds. 30 to 50 mph cross winds made driving very exciting. Actually, western North Dakota was a lot like Montana and quite scenic. We even came across the Badlands of North Dakota. Once past that area, the ground levels out to a pretty boring (except for the wind) drive. Our day ended in beautiful weather in Bismarck.

Sep 12, 2013 - Day 3 - Brainerd, MN to Bismarck, North Dakota

We left Brainerd, MN this morning and continued our trek westward with our goal for today being Bismarck, North Dakota. Northern Minnesota is much like Upper Michigan, rolling country and lakes, lakes, lakes. Minnesota is, after all, the land of 10,000 lakes. It's also the home of the largest TURKEY in Frazee, MN. Hmmmmm....I wonder how they know that? We left Minnesota behind and crossed into North Dakota through Fargo. The only thing I will remember about Fargo is I got stung by a bee that got into the truck. OUCH!! I understand now why...

Aug 10, 2013 - Travel Day

Slept a little later this morning, got up at 5:45am. Ha. Today is one of our travel days and to be on the coach all day except for our lunch and pit stops. While driving we had opportunity to watch DVD of Yellowstone Park and the movie "The Blind Side"....just love that movie! Finishing driving through Minnesota then on through North Dakota seeing only corn/soy fields...literally. Land very flat also. The towns are few and far between. Interesting note: The picture with Hay Rolls shows how ND uses land wisely by planting the hay along side...

Aug 10, 2013 - Travel Day

Today is a travel day. We left the hotel at 8:30am making one rest stop then continuing west on I-94 stopping for lunch in Fargo, ND. Susan has not been feeling well as she is coming down with a cold, so at our lunch stop she shopped for her drugs and I shopped for jeans and warm clothes as I did not pack the right clothes for this trip. I have been so cold. At 1:30pm today it was only 68! That's cold for a Florida girl! Well did not find anything at Target in the way of warm clothing, so I'll check on down the road. We had pizza at Pizza...

Jul 15, 2013 - North Dakota, a state we missed last year

We woke to another foggy morning, but it isn't raining, yet. We are looking forward to entering into North Dakota. We crossed over the state border at Fargo. Wasn't that the name of a TV show once? It is a very flat landscape with lots of crops. Dad the corn is green, but not very tall. The visibility is poor, lots of fog with scattered showers. The further west we traveled on I-94, the sun peeked through on occasion. Boy things are really green, and flooding is evident in many areas. We arrived at our campsite in Bismarck early afternoon,...

Jul 6, 2013 - Bismarck KOA

We had a good travel day today. It was overcast and rainy for most of the morning. This afternoon the sun came out and the temperature went up to 85F. Tonight we are at the Bismarck KOA. It is a nice open site with 50 amp service, so we have the AC on and the satellite working for the race at Daytona. I'll check the pictures Glenna took as we travelled today and upload some, if there are some interesting ones.
