May 13, 2018 - Crossing North Dakota

Day: 2 Miles: 407 Total Miles: 53 Start: Sauk Centre, MN Stop: Garrison, ND Campground: Ft Stevenson State Park @ Lake Sakakawea America the Beautiful. Rolling hills of central and northern Minnesota gave way to the flat northern plains. Miles and miles of rich farm land with farmers working hard to get crops started. No view of majestic mountains or sunny sea shores. Just the beauty of the American heartland. White pelicans floating on waters of many lakes. Canadian geese honking in the distance. Sunset over the lake. Roughing it...

Alaska 2018

Jul 16, 2017 - North Dakota visit

We drove 430 miles today (our longest day yet) from Aitkin, MN to Garrison, ND. Somewhere along the way I noticed that I had lost my watch. We had stopped a few times for gas and once to put on our rain suits. I have no idea where it fell off. Angie had given it to me for Christmas. Being retired I shouldn't need one I guess, but I miss it! In Garrison, we visited our friends and Arizona neighbors Kenny and Betty Huesers for 2 days. We had a great time visiting and had great food. They showed us around the area and a few of the local...

Jun 23, 2016 - Garrison ND – Lake Sakakawea – Sportsmen’s Centennial Park Campground

We moved over to the other side of Lake Sakakawea in search of fish. It appears that most fishermen are having the same kind of luck we are. It may be that the water is still too cold and the walleyes just aren’t biting yet. That’s what one guy told Roger anyway and it sounds better than saying I just can’t hook the little buggers any more! The gal in the office here at the campground said she was told there are fish in Lake Audubon (across the road from Sakakawea), so we tried that a couple of times. I did catch two keepers, but I still...

Jun 2, 2010 - Day Trip To Garrison, ND

Today we go pheasant hunting. However, I get ahead of myself. We drive to Uniontown to find a café that is open for breakfast. Millie joins us for breakfast. She is 80. She lives in Uniontown but she grew up in Washington. She has a great laugh and is good company. We decide it is a good day to drive to Garrison and look for Walleye Wally. We never find him. We cross a causeway that separates Lake Sakakawea from Lake Audubon. We find Fort Stevenson State Park on the north side of Lake Sakakawea. There is a replica of the original fort’s...

Jun 24, 2009 - Day the Sidewalk Won

I have a challenge for each of you - try to do your normal activities such as makeup, hair, teeth-brushing, putting earrings in, etc. with the hand that you do not normally use. That is what I've been facing since last Friday. For those of you that Jack graced with a photo of me yesterday, this may explain what happened. Somehow, in just walking up Main Street here in town, the sidewalk became uneven and tripped me up. I managed to make a not so graceful fall, bruising up my knees and skinned up my right hand and elbow. A large - almost...

Jun 19, 2009 - Day - Friday

Here we are at the end of our first week plus a couple of days in ND. Once we got up here, things have slowed down considerably. We went to an auction sale yesterday - Thursday, and managed to purchase some fabric that was there. Never have too much fabric, you know. Bid on one other item, but I wouldn't go as high as someone else, so lost that. Today we met my aunt and uncle, Lloyd and Pat, in New Town and managed to donate some money to the Indians at the Casino. Never have won anything when I try to gamble a bit. You would think I would...

Jun 16, 2009 - Days - Lots

Well, its been quite a time since I've been able to send an update. No, we didn't fall off the end of the earth - just got to areas where there was no easy internet access. But now we are back in Garrison, and can use the Library computers, so I'll try to send one every few days. We spent one night with friends in Colton, SD and had a great visit. Dale and Linda are friends from a long time ago - I grew up with Linda and Jack was in the service with Dale. They always provide great meals and fun for us. Someday we hope they will travel down...
