I have just posted these pictures of our visit in Minnesota. I will send out another newsletter in a few days. We have lots to report on. We had a really great time with Tom and Carol Vind and I have some of Carol's special recipes to add to our recipe section too. We have just entered North Dakota (we are at Laramore Dam and it is wonderful). Because it is big, spacious and inexpensive ($12 with Good Sam discount) we like it. They even have a  phone jack for email, I will try to catch up. The Vinds had a phone line for me to use anytime too, but we were too busy playing.

Sadly all good things must come to an end. It was time to say "good bye"

The newsletter went out last night and we said we were going to leave Laramore today, but we decided that since we were through with our work, it would be a shame to not play the lovely golf course here. So that is what we did and we will spend one more night here. This is really a very nice campground.
Laramore Dam Recreational Area Campground (North Dakota)
We are all alone in the back of the campground but across from restrooms. The other campers are way far away (in the background of the picture on the right). The mangaer said that he likes to keep the big (heavy) rigs at this end of the campground because the ground is harder.

The cost for 9 holes was only $10.00 and only $7.00 for the second 9 holed.
The charge to rent a cart is $8. We walked and loved it.
