Most of my time in ND was spent working on escorting windtowers from Fargo to windfarms near Lakota. When there was free time I was off exploring a landscape full of dried sunflowers and the bluest duck ponds that would sparkle under the sunlight. I love how, unlike TX and some of the other states further south, the farm fields of ND were not closed in with fences. I think it is that one particular detail that made ND feel so much freer and open for me.
Fargo was also a great little city to explore and was home to some of the nicest individuals I have ever met. The city has a wonderful art museum that houses a great collection of regional art, diverse restaurants selection and some creative boutiques to shop in. def a place worth visiting while on a road trip!
My father and I spent a good chunk of the winter season in ND. It is possibly one of the coldest states in the country (next to Alaska of course). The temp was so low one morning that my car brakes FROZE!! I had no idea that that was even possible! So if you venture into ND be sure to be prepared, pack warm and ALWAY warm your car up before driving :P:P
