Prairie Village Museum – Rugby, North Dakota

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort in Seaside, Oregon. I’ve been here a number of times before, so I’ve thoroughly seen all of the local tourist attractions. So, now I’m just hanging out enjoying the nice weather.

Mary is dealing with her over-flowing to-do list plate which can only be handled by herself. The construction of Mary’s rental continues delay plagued. She now is hoping to rejoin me by early September.  😦

A more relaxed mode…

After our 682 day on-the-go 2011-2013 circumnavigation of the United States, I have decided to slip into a more relaxed mode. In the next few months I will be traveling through areas previously explored. Unless I do something unusual, this Blog will feature a photo album from the circumnavigation and will change daily.

Today’s Subject…Prairie Village Museum – Rugby, North Dakota…

Towner, North Dakota

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the 77 miles from Devils Lake to Towner, North Dakota.

We continued traveling along U.S.Highway 2 West.

As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…

Highway 2 traffic continues to be light. No vehicles visible in front of us…

And no vehicles visible behind us. Speed limit is 70. Set the cruise control on 55 and watch the miles roll by. Sweet…

Along the way we stopped in Rugby, North Dakota which claims to be the geographical center of North America. You can read about this place by clicking this link… http://www.rugbynorthdakota.com/AttractionDetail.aspx?AttractionID=6

Just down the street we met up with a John Deere tractor bigger than the motorhome…

A short distance away, we spent an interesting two hours visiting the Prairie Village Museum. It does a great job showing what early prairie life was like in 30 buildings.

The first photo is of one of their postcards showing an aerial view of the buildings…

Here are some of the photos I took there…

And here’s Mary enjoying her afternoon…

We enjoyed a very pleasant and restful stay here. Thank you, Towner!

Yesterday was a lousy weather day. 80 degrees with high humidity. Today’s forecast is for 90 degrees. Tomorrow is forecast 92 degrees. YUKKITTY!

We’ll continue our westward travel later this morning.

Enjoying free, pretty city park campgrounds is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!
