Throwback Thursday #5 – August 29, 2006

We’re not traveling as much in our fifth wheel anymore so I thought it would be fun to relive some of our most memorable days from previous RV trips.

Some days on a long RV trip are more exciting than others. Even some of the less exciting days  days are memorable because of things we saw as we drove down the road towards our next destination. This day 13 years ago was one of those days. It was a day spent driving through the plains from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada to Williston, North Dakota.

We started the day with delicious homemade cinnamon rolls from the RV park in Saskatoon. This is what I wrote in my journal about the day.

“Driving through Saskatchewan was interesting. There were fields of wheat, barley, and alfalfa as far as the eye could see. Some of the farms had really pretty red barns.

We drove through Moose Jaw. All day there was a really strong headwind and we got terrible gas mileage. We crossed the border into North Dakota and drove to Williston. The last 15 miles or so of road in Canada was gravel.

We had a good dinner in Williston and left early the next morning.”

What I didn’t write was we both wanted to kiss the ground when we crossed the border into the United States and didn’t have to bounce along in the dust on a gravel a road any more!

I only have a few pictures. Here they are.

Every once in a while we’d see a train
Sometimes there were barns

What I remember most about the day was seeing the crops growing on the vast plains as far as the eye could see. Driving through farmland like this always makes me grateful to the hardworking farmers who grow the food that ends up on our tables.

  1. On the way to and from Alaska, we crossed in Washington. Luckily the roads weren’t too bad. I love seeing the fields and fields of crops. Like you, it always reminds me we should be ever so thankful to the farmers.
