Aug 2, 2016 - World's largest buffalo

We arrived yesterday - there were clouds as we left Minnesota but the sky had cleared as we got into Jamestown, the interstate was a nice straight ride. In the evening, clouds gathered and we had hail and wind - a local strong thunderstorm. Luckily the hail was small and didn't do any damage but sure did make alot of noise. Now it's clear as a bell. As we drove along I94 in North Dakota we saw brilliant yellow fields of sunflowers and golden fields of grain. Could not stop to take a photo but wish we could have.. Today we went to the...

2016 Eagle trip

Jul 8, 2016 - Jamestown, ND

Today's travels were just a straight shot along Interstate 94. Since it was mostly grasslands and farms, the good people of North Dakota decided to place some interesting giant statues along the Interstate to give us something to look forward to. Besides a few pointed hills and some rolling grassy hills, they have what they call "Prairie Potholes". You can read about these freshwater marshes here. Then I spotted something high atop a hill, in the distance. Why it's "Salem Sue", the world's largest Holstein Cow, located in New Salem, North...

Jul 28, 2015 - Blowing in the Wind

It was warm in the coach overnight but we all toughed it out and made the best of it. We got an early start and left Minnesota behind for North Dakota. North Dakota is the only state we haven't been to; so, we can now cross it off the bucket list. We stopped at the Visitor Center in Fargo for a quick break. The wind was really picking up and soon became a 20-mile an hour head wind. That's a killer for fuel mileage for us. We had hoped to make Bismarck but put down in Jamestown, about 100 miles shy of our goal. As we sit here, there's no...

Summer 2015 & Beyond

Jul 4, 2014 - Home of the White Buffalo

Traveling during the holidays can be a challenge. We try to plan ahead so that we can find a pleasant place to park. In the past, I have forgotten Memorial day and we ended up staying the weekend in a place I would sooner forget. I was happy to get a spot at Pioneer Village RV park. It had seen its day and the sites were really close together. There were a lot of semi-permanent trailers. Its claim to fame, was its location. It was just a block away from the largest Buffalo in the World. "The World's Largest Buffalo was built in 1959 at the...

Jun 24, 2014 - Day 7 I-94 backup

Well, who in the world thought the odometer would turn 10,000 miles in the middle of Minnesota on I-94? It caused quite the backup when we had to stop to take a picture of it. Seems everyone was looking around to see what we were looking at, as I jumped out with my camera and started shooting pictures of the field to throw them off, LOL!! Remember my post yesterday about the shadow in the tree that I thought was a bear? The tree with the eagle sitting on it? In this mornings light, I could clearly see that it was a HUGE eagles nest. Mystery...

Day 19 - Jamestown, ND 8/31/2013 Another boring travel day. The nice part was, it cooled off today and it was overcast most of the day, made for a pleasant trip. We spied this cow on the side of the road, touted as "The Worlds Largest Holstein Cow". It was on a hillside and an advertisement for a bank, so we didn't try to stop and see it, just snapped the picture. We arrived in Jamestown without any problems. We needed to do some grocery shopping, so we went into town after we parked the trailer. We saw that the Worlds Largest Buffalo was...

Wednesday Just a brief update on today’s progress. We headed out from Itasca National Park via the back roads down to Detroit Lakes and Highway 10 headed west.

Aug 8, 2013 - Jamestown, ND

Today is a rest day for us. We are camping in a county park with hugh slots in an elm and spruce grove. There is a plant used as a barrier around the park that has a red berry on it, so far unable to determine what it is. Will have to ask locals. We had late breakfast/lunch, Danny cooked bacon on picnic table, heated up his homemade biscuits which he topped with Bradley's cane syrup and I with Marion berry jelly we purchased in Or. last yr.. Bonnie is to have her nails trimed professionally, we need suggestions on how to trim with her new...

Aug 7, 2013 - Trout Lake Camp we must move on

Dear Lord, thank you for this experience. This area is beautiful; enough of a hill rise that you are able to see the lakes in a distance. The camp has two campuses one for primary school and one for secondary. There is a beach area with pontoon boats, water craft to pull large tubes, kayak, paddle boards, and a swim area. In addition they have paintball, archery, crafts, horses, petting zoo, rife range, and most importantly Chapel with meaningful fun skits and devotion time. I would love to have my grandchildren attend this camp. We...
