Are there any members living in ND?

It would be real nice to know that I'm not heading into winter without some backup for sufferin' through the colder months.

Believe it or not, the winters here are not as bad as portrayed be the news media. This misbelief falls under the same idea about the heat in our desert regions from the southwestern states.....not as bad as it is portrayed in movies and such.

I would rather have our dry cold, than any lake effect snow/cold from having large water bodies near. It is funny to see how the only time we make the weather news is when  there happens to be a storm moving through, that would make me think that,  by news reporting/correlation,  there is nothing but rain storms on the eastern coast, and heavy snows around New York!

And by my comment about suffering through the cold, I am just getting older and not enjoying the winters as much as I used to.

I take it those persons weren't wonderful?   ....I know some of us can be different at times....:thumbup:

Actually a good friend of mines dad moved them out there in grade school he and his brothers roads out there in the back of their truck, he's back here now. Another guy I know worked in the oil fields for 15 years, he lived in his suburban, odd dude but super nice! Literally would give you the shirt off his back if you asked.

Are far are you from the boom town area brother ??

I live in Mandan, which is fairly centrally located.  I have actually lived, worked, and drove semi-trucks out in the patch. I would not trade what i do, and where I am for that again.

The oil patch area is more or less the western 1/3 of the state, with it concentrated towards the upper part, rather than the bottom area.

I know we do have some cold weather, and THAT is normally when one needs to be doing something outside for the office jockey......happens every time.

We get our ice down at the Quikky Mart here in the desert.  It may not be as fresh as when you go fish for fresh winter ice but it works.

Been in Minot in the middle of winter. Dry Cold? It is cold, period. No colder than living on Lake Superior though. We are cold year round, probably 15 degrees lower then the surrounding area in the summer.  In the winter we are about 15 degrees warmer until if and when the Lake freezes, then we are just cold again, period. I like the cold until February, then I get sick of it. Time to bail then.

Good to know there is another member close by. 

Sometime we may have to get together and get acquainted better.

I'm in Fargo and just shot a 1000yd match in Moffit. Not only is it cold in the winter, I think Moffit ND is one windy place to shoot at. Had 13 1/2 mins of wind on at 1000yds shooting my palma rifle. I shoot at the forks rifle club as well.

Moffit, Carson, Mandan. ...they are all windy.

Our buffalo cartidge shoots in Carson were sometimes very interesting,  all windage used up and adding some kentucky windage in to "assist".:cool:

Next time you are down in the Moffit area, give me some notice, I will try to get out there and meet up if you want.
