Grand Forks

Hey everyone. Just wondering if there are any jeepers on this site from Grand Forks. This is my second Wrangler. I don't do much wheeling but I do use mine a lot for traveling to abandoned sites for photography.

Howdy Scotiez,

Not many North Dakotans reply to the threads. Jeepdon is probably the most active and has a lot of experience. I see lots of Jeeps in ND, but rarely see them off road. Only in Williston did I see a lot of off-roaders. I think that was because of the Cliffhangers 4x4 Club. Some interesting builds back in the 80's and 90's. Lots of junkyard V8's repurposed in metal cages.

Bismarck has a lot of "mudders" that hit the offload park south of town at the Desert. I only wheel there in the winter when no one else is around. I like to avoid mud and creating ruts.

I kinda share your hobby, but have not done it for years. I like to visit old abandoned towns in ND. I've started driving all back roads again when I travel, so I stop when I see something interesting. I use my Jeep in the winter and will be using my Navion RV this summer. The RV has been just as much fun as my Jeep. I talk about all these places in ND I've been and now my wife is interested in taking day trips to go see them. Due to working in the oilfield years ago, I use to joke about driving from Williston to Bismarck or Williston to Denver and never touching pavement other than to cross a highway. The old country gravel roads have some interesting sights and history. Too bad the "King's Highway" out in western ND is now paved.

And welcome to the forum.
