Joe, Riding so many miles with such high cross winds takes a lot of fortitude. Congrats to you and all that undertook the challenge to ride 500 miles in such conditions. Thanks for posting pictures of the starting and ending locations. ND is one of 3 States that I have not had the opportunity to visit yet. If I do ever get to visit ND, I most want to go to the International Peace Garden. You continue to show what a good long distance rider you are by not simply returning home the following day, but rather continuing to ride into Canada, and by riding almost 2000 miles in 3 days. Very impressive!
