Though the money is good and the hours are long, this is one of those grand adventures that we will talk about for years. The beet harvest here in North Dakota is the world's second largest ! We are meeting great people and visiting some very cool historical places. One of those places is the site of the Hudson Bay Company's Southern most fur trading post. There wasn't much there at the site, but it was cool to stand in the tracks of early explorers of America. We have always been fascinated by those very earliest of trappers and mountainmen. The online and local research was an added bonus and amplified the experience. Today we are having a "frost halt" to the harvest and will take advantage of the day off to go to a nearby community to visit historical sites. As always, we will carry a camera.
