    My 8mo old son is fascinated with the moon. Any time we are outside he starts looking around the sky saying "moon....moon". My dad told me that my older sister did the same thing, but called it "da boon" :lol3

    Technically true, but I use the phrase "on highway 30" to describe all those towns from Fremont to Ogallala.

    Thanks, it is indeed around Williston, about 12 miles north of town.

    As for the no rigs or semis, its pretty easy, just stay on the minimum maintenance roads, and on land that already has wells. There are at least 2 wells in that pic. Unlike what the news media may lead people to believe, it isn't total choas. I still feel safer on the roads here than I did in traffic on 635 in Dallas. :D


    Here is another taken north of Watford City on the south side of the lake from much earlier this year.

    Most of these were taken by my buddy, Devon (the guy on the GS1150). I took the ones of him using his camera and settings, he took the rest of me on the Ninja/V-Strom, and of the Vulcan 800.

    This thread gave me extreme Albertan wanderlust. Boring as those roads could be, I really did love riding out there.
