Today I drove from the rolling hills of Minnesota to the flat plane of North Dakota. The many trees of Minnesota gave way to the open fields in North Dakota. Big gusts of wind were whipping across the plains and I needed to be careful to maintain our high profile motorhome in my lane.

The Dakotas are nice!

Well, I finally made it to Fargo! I am not sure why I wanted to see Fargo. Maybe it was the movie a number of years ago with the city name as its title. May it was them often using the phrase “You Betcha!” in the movie. I have always wanted to visit Fargo – just not visit here in winter. Mid October is as late as I want to be in this area of the country. You can tell by the vehicles and buildings, it gets very, very cold in this part of the country. Now that I have made it northwest to reach Fargo, it is time for me to pivot and head south. Quickly. It is supposed to get very cold before the weekend.

There were many, many agriculture fields that I saw in North Dakota. The soil was rich and very dark. Almost a black color where the ground had been tilled. I imagine it is very rich soil.

Normally, I do not care for long shirts and long pants; however, October means you need to dress warmly in this part of the country.

Originally, I was going to stay at an RV park in Fargo. However, to my surprise, there are NO RV parks in Fargo. Maybe the season is too short? However, an hour south of Fargo was a Casino and they had about a dozen RV spots. For $10 I got a nice space and full hookups with 30 amp electric service. I prefer 50 amp, but I can do nicely with 30 amp.
