Note: This is a large blog and no telling what it will do when I upload it.
Apparently the title is true and this is what makes North Dakota so special. People are friendly and is far more relaxed than other states. You feel safe leaving your keys in the ignition and walking away, not that I did but some people do and most leave their cars unlocked. People here make the most of the summer months and all get out of their homes to enjoy the good weather. The rest of the year they are literally snowed in.
These next couple of photos are riding into ND from Sturgis
|A fuel stop and a stretch|
Valley City and Home to the Myrhe clan.
War memorial in the town square
Its the end of summer and the river is still flooded right in town
|The local jail. Who let him out!!!|
|The Interstate heading east to Sturgis. On the ND Interstate you can sit on 75MPH or about 85mph in our case, in which you can really make a mile quickly.|
|The day I arrived a few cold Corona's on a warm day went down nice.|
|Russell's daughter's Amanda's going away BBQ|
|My first ride with out a helmet "Riding free" a nice feeling|

|Russell J Myrhe City Prosecuting Attorney and legendary ND biker. Russell got sworn in a few Mondays ago and somehow I dont see him fit the description, can you have a motorcycle retrobate in this position?|

|When you forget to turn your light off and the battery goes flat you can always depend upon a mate to have a camera handy, err help you fix it.|
|Interstate and Storm|
|More Storm go faster, we missed the downpour that shortly followed|
Well that's a small look into North Dakota and Valley cities surrounding area, I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did, though that's probably not possible unless you go there and have a beer with Russ.
I've gone to find myself, If I get back before I arrive, Please keep me there.
