Twenty-nine miles north of where we were camped was the town of Bowman, the first town over the North Dakota state line. There was a city park campground, Butte View Campground with 54 sites spread out in the scrabbly grass most with electricity for $30 a night. I came for the reported showers.
After getting the propane I drove around town looking for lunch. I could not believe this town of 1650 in population did not have one single fast food place, not even a McDonalds which I might have went for in desperation. Nothing! I saw two bar and grills and a closed diner. Amazing.
I left thinking What a sad sorry town. I’ve been in smaller towns all over that had a lot more to offer. It was seventy-four miles north to our goal at Dickinson where we once again got blown off the road with a heavy wind and rain storm along the way. Fun times. It’s great to be moving again.
