    The construction I saw was nothing like running Tennessee and Kentucky last week..uneven lanes throwing the trailer around like a doubles or triples rig..

    There are no buffalo in the U.S.

    Sorry.. common misconception.
    Just a peeve of mine.. like when folks call a snake "poisonous".

    Crawling back under my rock now.

    Of course there are buffalo in the US. They're in zoos, imported from Africa.

    That place is just alright IMO...the bar and grill is okay. I prefer Olson’s down at the 183 myself. Just a quieter little place where they only charge $8 for a shower.
     
    Upinsmoke Thanks this.

    I prefer SD to ND also. MN and WI I personally find to be boring, and 39 south through Madison and Janesville is big league no bueno at the wrong time. Too much traffic and construction.

    90 to Albert Lea and then down through Mason city, Waterloo and Cedar Rapids on 218/380 back down to 80 through Walcott is my preferred jig if I’m beating east.
