The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.

Jamestown, North Dakota

World's Largest Buffalo - 60-ton concert sculpture. I learned that famed western story writer Louis L'Amour and singer Peggy Lee are from Jamestown. Pretty cool. I got a 3'fer on this stop.


  1. And now, our roving reporter has moved to another town, with even more interesting things to relate. He really gets around! This is so much fun, John...

  2. This is way better than the Corn Palace.

  3. It's a wonderful monument John.. thanks for sharing this fun image.

  4. Nice pic John. You should have held Sinbad too.


  5. Great, but could it be a normal sized buffalo and the world's smallest blogger.
    I was also quite surprised to find that Louis L'Amour, as well as being a western writer, was also a good poet.

  6. This is awesome. Better watch out, looks like he's going to run you over! :)

    I love Louis L'Amour stories! Very cool 3'fer.
