Heading into the Gold Rush State

Day 3

Menomonie, St Cloud, Barnesville, Fargo, Bismarck, Dickinson

Although we gained an hour in CST, we took two! On the road again at 8am, we detoured off I-94 to go around the Twin Cities, but construction made for an extra long trip through the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. Ugh.

After lunch we stopped in Barnesville, MN to get Solo current on his shots as required to enter Canada. It was a sweet animal clinic in a town of 2500 people.

Will drove a couple hundred miles and brought us into North Dakota. It was a slow going and uneventful travel day. We crossed into Mountain Time just after Bismarck.

We pulled off in Dickinson, ND at a brand new LaQuinta Inn loaded with construction workers, reflecting the "gold rush" this state is experiencing. The odometer was at 2018.

After dinner in the "best" restaurant in town, Country Kitchen, we took to our comfy beds to watch the MTV awards.
