I drove to Bismarck, ND. Finding a room was difficult since all of the hotels are full of oil field workers. The people who keep telling me how the Obama Administration has halted drilling obviously haven't seen this part of the country. There are over 200 drilling rigs in operation. Oil production has more than quadrupled since 2007 to over 500,000 barrels a day putting North Dakota in second place behind Texas in oil production.

I'm heading toward Hill City, SD. I just found out today that the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally starts tomorrow so hotels are going to be hard to get anywhere near Sturgis including Hill City so I'll have to rethink my plan.
