Had my second night in a Travel-lodge parking lot - that's working out well! Safe, no one looks twice at a strange car parked there, and I can wander in and use the lobby bathroom in the morning. Just have to act like I belong there!
I'm having a serious craving for comics. I might have to search out something in Fargo to ease my pain.
Oh yeah, I'm in Fargo! And believe it or not, there is a special ceremony tomorrow at noon for the release of a new Special Edition of Fargo. There will be a statue unveiled, free screenings, and dvd giveaways. I am so there.
Fargo is not so bad a city. I think it suffers from the same bad rep as most of North Dakota. It does have a few problems. Constant widespread construction, for one, and a lack of imagination in regards to street names. Every one is a number. Now that may be fine in a small town, or one that is just a big grid, but neither of those apply here. So you get 7th St. NW and 7th Ave. NW and 7th St. S and 7th Ave W. It is absolutely the most confusing thing in the world. Somehow, I managed to find my way to the library. Had to stop for directions twice. The first guy told me "It's on 1st, between 2nd and 3rd". Like that really narrows it down in this town! The second guy pointed. Much more helpful.
Off to ride a pontoon and get Lost in a Good Book.
