World’s Largest Buffalo. . .I guess this is Buffalo Week

Leaving Minnesota this morning,

we had decided that Jamestown ND

would be a good destination for an overnight stay. . .

it met all the criteria. ..about 3 1/2 hours on the road. . .

leaving time to see a couple of interesting things in the afternoon. . .

Minnesota Sunflowers

this beautiful field of sunflowers brightened our day. . .

North Dakota State Line

first time we’ve ever crossed the North Dakota State Line. . .

Frontier Fort RV Park - Jamestown ND

by noon we were all set up at Frontier Fort RV Park. . .
I was reminded by Judy, when I told her where we had reservations,

that Sherry and David had a horrible experience here. . .

so we were somewhat concerned. . .

but like Sherry said. . .the reviews weren’t that bad,

and another couple we had met said they had a nice long

pull through with great 50 amp service. . .so here we are to give it a try. . .

Frontier Fort RV Park - Jamestown ND

here’s the deal as best we can tell. . .

do NOT stay in the BACK IN 30 amp spots. . .

you can see more graphic pics by checking out Sherry’s Blog

Frontier Fort RV Park - Jamestown ND

pay the extra fee for the 50A pull through spots, which seem to be fine. . .

$27 Passport America Rate. . .

it will work for just this one night. . .

 

There are three things we would like to see since we are here. . .

Frontier VillageLouis L'Amour's Writing Shack - Frontier Village

Louis L'Amour's Writer's Shack - Frontier Village

Louis L’Amour was born in Jamestown ND,

and lived here as Louis LaMoore until he was 15.

Frontier Village

He later changed the spelling of his name

when his writing career began to take off. . .


Dave has read every book he has ever written. . .

Frontier VillageFrontier Village

I knew the World’s Largest Buffalo was going to qualify

as one of those weird Roadside Attractions. . .

Frontier Village

yep. . .I was right. . .

right up there with Paul Bunyan and Babe. . .fun stuff!

Frontier Village

and then the Albino Buffalo,  but this was the best photo we were able to get. . .

and this is from the freeway.

The buffalo were not visible from the museum area,

but we knew we had seen them from I-94 as we were coming into town. . .

so we drove back around there to get these sad pics. . .

Frontier Village

Sherry’s pics of him? are much, much better. . .

so I hope you’ll check it out. . .

She and David must have been at Frontier Town on a Saturday. ..

‘cause none of the stuff she shows on her blog was going on

when we were there today. . .and we leave in the morning. . .

 

Frontier Village

but I did get this one great pic of Dave funnin’ around. . .

he’s such a clown. . .

Stagecoach from Frontier Village
After Frontier town, a teeny little grocery run

was an absolute necessity. . .

we were totally out of bread, eggs, and sugar. . .


We’ll see you in Bismarck next time for our tour of the
North Dakota State Capitol. . .

 

‘til then,

Janice and Dave
