By next year, I might have my paperwork organized so I can travel to the US.

As they say in the Air Force: Why NOT Minot? Because it's freakin' cold up there, that's why! Unless it's the dead (heat) of summer...

I think it would be fun--especially the ethnic foods! I'm always up for some lefse, swedish meatballs, pickled herring...if we think we want to do this, we'd have to find s/place to stay fairly early on...the hotels in Minot fill up quickly. Too bad my cousins no longer live there...

It's 11.5 hours from here. When would we want to be there? I have to plan for vacation days.

It seems to me it runs 5 days, usually at the end of September/beginning of October. This year it is a M-F (Oct 1 - 5) (which seems odd, one would think it would include a weekend...).

I was looking at room rates for next spring...high, many of the dates I looked at were not available. You weren't kidding about room availability.

Hmm. If I don't sell Mom's house by then, it's 3 hours away from Minot. 3BR, full finished basement, 3 bathrooms...
Just sayin'.

I need to be able to drive in one day... It's the only way I could afford the time and the trip.

Problem is, Mom's house is on the east coast of ND. Close to Canada, but clear across the state from Montana. A very long drive. :sigh:
