Aug 30, 2009 - Still in ND

Last day at my sister Donna's house. (We've been parked behind their house). I took a rest from updating mytripjournal, but we've been busy. We've camped at Little Beaver Dam on Lake Sakakawea, visited with relatives, barbecued, watched brother Maynard harvest lentils, sat on patios just relaxing, etc., etc., etc. Best of all, enjoyed the cool beautiful weather in North Dakota and spending time with the family. We'll be heading to Grand Forks on August 31st to vend at the Grand Forks AFB Base Exchange. I'll attach some photos in a few days.

This used to be a booming town as was a central place for farmers to bring their crops like wheat, oats, flax, etc., to the elevators for shipment on the railroad. Earlier in the century, there were hotels, restaurants, stores, lumber yards, and lots of other businesses. While I was growing up, stores one by one went away, however there was still activity going on.
