Here are a few of the things I learned on during our Grizwaldesque Thanksgiving road trip to North Dakota:
  • Fargo is aptly named. The only thing it's close to is West Fargo (and Moorhead which, it turns out, is not aptly named).

  • Stay away from the biscuits and gravy at the Fargo Holiday Inn. "Stick to your ribs" must have a unique colloquial meaning in North Dakota.

  • The people of North Dakota are super nice, but they misspell and mispronounce "barbecue."

  • You can make it from Fargo to Sioux Falls on a single tank of gas... just barely.

  • It's only a matter of time before there's a Space Aliens Bar and Grill at either The Legends or the P&L District. But they damn well better spell "barbecue" correctly.

  • I spent hours along a lonely highway looking for that bag of money, but I didn't find it so it must still be there somewhere.

  1. In my experience, you're better off avoiding biscuits and gravy anywhere north of St. Joe.

  2. You must have a smaller tank of gas, because we made it from Council Bluffs to Fargo on one tank of gas....barely.


Your turn to riff...
