I'm glad you're excited.... but I've BEEN to North Dakota.

I hope it's all you hoped it would be.

Hello!! I am back from my fire assignment in North Dakota. I stayed two weeks on the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation at Fort Yates, ND. While I was there they have several fires that totaled over 11,000 acres. My duties where to help them with dispatching and ordering supplies and firefighting personnel. While I was there I got to see much of the local history. At Fort Lincoln I saw a replica of the house that Custer and his wife lived in before the Little Bighorn battle. I visited a Mandan village along the Missouri River. Near Fort Yates I saw where Sitting Bull was once buried. I had a great time, learned many things, and hopefully provided them some help.

I am glad to be back, too. It was great fun and it was nice of them to let me have some time here and there to do some sightseeing. I love to visit places that have such a rich history. On the reservation there is a herd of 300-400 hundred buffalo. What amazing animals. They can weigh up to 3-4 thousand pounds!! I have pictures and as soon as I can I will download them out of my camera.
