Left Grand Forks early as it was forcasted rain. Nice weather till we hit Fargo and it started pouring. I do not mind rain but when it pours so hard you cannot see we pull over just for safety. Made numerous stops. Rained very hard for 150 miles and when we got to the Twin cities it was the hardest rain in stop and go traffic. Very Stressful. We crossed the river into Wisconsin and decided to call it a night in Hudson WI. Tomorrow the plan is to be home by eve. About 525 miles. Trip has been great and lucky to not have more rain than what we drove through. Bike now has left front fork leaking fluid so I will have a rebuild when I get home. Also will need a new rear ... read more

Left Malta Montana and our goal was to make it to Grand Forks ND. 555 miles and it was a good day. Eighty Three degrees and sunny the whole way. Highway 2 turned to 4 lanes part way across ND and it was a fantastic road. Rode past Devils lake and did not realize how big a lake it was. Not many pics except a few along the way. ND does a great job of posting historical info along the way. Also many many oil wells have sprung up in this area. Saw a bunch of the FEMA trailers that come from New Orleans that were temp housing for oil workers. Not much else to say as this journey is coming to an end soon.... read more

Bahamas North America » United States » North Dakota » Grand Forks By PinkphoenixJune 28th 2007 For my graduation trip, I was able to go on a fantastic cruise to the Bahamas with my daddy! This trip was eventful, and I was able to meet a lot of great people, as well as just go out and have fun. The island of the Bahamas in Nassau was very hot, busy, and was a learning experience. I had to go back to my "small-town" roots and try to remember that big cities are different. I was able to tour the city using a horse and buggy and everything was pink!!! The 3-4 day at Sea we ... read more
