An omen.

We saw this North Dakota Tourism Dept. sign on Interstate 94 just before crossing into Montana.

"Thinking of Leaving North Dakota? Custer did."

Rugby, located on Hwy 2, also has an excellent frontier meuseum. Over night RV parking in the meuseum parking lot is allowed.

Devils lake has Grahams Island state park, and Devils lake has some of the best Walleye and Northern pike fishing in the nation.

Most every town has a city park that has RV camping, and usually at very reasonable prices.

I lived in the state for 40 some years. Yeah the winters can get long, but thats what they make booze for. June thru August, you'll find that its a very comfortable time of year and there is plenty to do any see.

The state is big on friendly and big on peace and quiet. Enjoy.

While I would like to visit the fine state of ND some time…

What I am able to gather about the weather is that it is predictably unpredictable…

With freezing temps possible well in to June on occasion and the possibility of them returning in August along with many record highs in the three digits, I have had to scratch it as a destination… there is just no way I could haul enough of the DW’s clothes to cover those extremes…

Aside from and because of sitting through some football games in Green Bay she has little desire to go that direction any time soon…
You've been reading the propaganda meant to keep out the tourists? Just Kidding
The past 2 years have been a bit cooler springs than normal but freezing temp usually end with Mother's Day and don't return until late September.

Summers are mostly temperate with comfortable evenings. Much nicer than than other areas I've lived where it is either hot & humid at night or just plain cold.

The Walleye & other pike fishing doesn't stop for winter. I hope everyone laughed at the Grump Old Men films as they captured a lot of the romance of frozen lake culture.

We had a great time at Audubon Lake last September. There is also a good wildlife viewing drive. We were only going to overnight it but ended up staying a few more days. Nice campground right on the lake. Good fishing too.

I am planning on visiting TRNP on my way west later this month.


Life is partly what we make it, and partly what it is made by the friends we choose.

Never been there never claimed to have been and am not trying to be critical… only relaying what I have been told by life long residents… with maybe a little tongue in cheek…

I am not and did not say these are normal temps, but I have been told high 20’s and low thirties are not all that uncommon either in early June and late August…

I have worked out in the cold winters my whole life because I had to, it was my job and I did it without complaining… I avoid cold weather now because I can… I gave away my snow blowers, snow plows, and snow shovels and gave up winter sports… if I own a sweat shirt it would take me a while to remember where I put it… no more tailgating or sitting in cold stadiums at South Bend, Green Bay, or Pittsburgh, a sports bar on the beach or the couch in the RV works just fine…

However I do have camping friends from Fargo and Bismarck and I would like to visit their neck of the woods some day… I am betting it will be in July when that happens…

Pretty darn good country we live in, with unlimited choices…

There is a reason we winter in Florida

The propaganda came from the weather service a few years ago when I was thinking about making ND a stopover on my way from Florida to Pittsburgh… that would have put me there in very late April and decided not to do it at that time…

Before these working people correct you, let me point out that, for a retiree, ND may be on the way from Florida to Pittsburgh.

If you go to North Dakota in July, be sure to go to the state fair in Minot. They have great concerts every night. You can pay genearal admission and walk the fair and still hear the concert.

You enjoy Florida. You won't find me down there. The stories I've been told about Florida is you won't fit in unless your over 70 or speak Spanish fluently. I don't fit either category so, I guess I have one less state to visit.

cheers!

You might want to check out the website below. Its for Norsk Hostfest, the largest Scandanavian Heritage festival outside Scandanavia. It starts 29 September in Minot. They have onsite camping. Great entertainment, food, and crafts. It can be a little pricey.
