... I'm more of a North Dakota sort of guy. For some reason North Dakota feels much more like home. Go figure. Today we drove all day. We went from Bemidgi, MN. to Williston, ND. That's pretty much the full width of North Dakota. The weather was a bit cooler today and the Mini ran just fine all day. Highway 2 has become a four lane divided road. Not quite a freeway since there are crossroads and lots of gravel roads leading to ...
Traveled all day. Tried to find a camp site Prairie Acres in Williston. Too tired too frustrating, finally chose Buffalo trails. Review said the placed sucked and they were right! Only had two spaces for travelers. The rest were permanent. So sad. Looked like the Grapes of Wrath. The town is ...
After leaving Winkler early we returned to Grand Forks ND to pick up our passports. We were not delayed at the border at all with our copy of our passports and our story. We then turned west and headed across North Dakota and Montana towards Waterton Canada. The winds were horrendous and affected our van's ESC. They seemed to be coming straight across us. We stopped several times to turn the van off ...
I had done some research the night before which had shown that the next couple of days would bring 20mph westerly winds. Unfortunately, my route was only heading west for 50m and then turning due south for about 150m. So I decided to go off route and boy am I glad I did because it resulted in a couple of major mileage days.
I set off and was flying along at well over 20mph and so though I hadn't definetely decided ...
... Route 2 was a lovely ride. Straight, double carriage way, one can get up to speed and then look around at the scenery. Lots of farmers out planting what must be barley and wheat.

TravelPod Member ReviewsCandlewood Suites Williston
I would like to give this hotel three stars but four things keep me from doing that.
1. Bed placement: The left side of the bed is very close to the wall. There is plenty of room to move the bed a few feet and put a bedside stand with a reading light and a place to put your alarm clock and glasses.
2. Toilet is not ADA compliant: That does not sound like much but those few extra inches make it easier for these old bones to get on and off the throne.
3. No trash can in the bathroom: I imagine this: you are about to step into the shower but you need a bar of soap; where do you put that paper wrapper you pealed off the soap.
4. Room cleanliness: just a few things that indicated to use that the room was not cleaned well.
