WHERE CORN GROWS

I NEVER IMAGINED BEING IN THE EXTREME YANKEE NORTH BUT HERE I AM IN BISMARK NORTH DAKOTA.  I AM SO FAR NORTH THAT THE COUNTRY PEOPLE DON’T SAY YES, INSTEAD THEY SAY YA.  AND BOY DO THEY STOP AND TURN THEIR HEAD SIDEWAYS LIKE A DOG WHEN I START TALKING.  THEY ARE LIKE A DEER CAUGHT IN HEADLIGHTS.

I NEVER HAD AN INKLING OF HOW BIG THE UNITED STATES WAS UNTIL I GOT HERE.  IT JUST ISN’T THE SAME LOOKING AT IT ON A MAP.  IT WAS DEFINITELY AN ADVENTURE DRIVING FROM MOBILE, AL  TO BISMARK, ND.  

ON GOOGLE MAPS IT TAKES AROUND TWENTY FOUR HOURS DRIVING TIME.  BUT UNLESS YOU HAVE THE ABILITY TO DRIVE THAT KIND OF TIME STRAIGHT IT WILL TAKE ABOUT THREE DAYS OF NORMAL DRIVING. AND I WAS PULLING A 5X8 UHAUL TRAILER DOING IT.

I HOPE YOU LIKE CORN BEFORE EVER THINKING ABOUT COMING THIS WAY BECAUSE I DROVE THROUGH LITERALLY  HUNDREDS AND HUNDREDS OF MILES OF HARVESTED CORN FIELDS UP THIS WAY. AND IF ONE HAD A CORN ALLERGY I GUESS YOU WOULD WOULD JUST EXPLODE  AFTER THE FIRST TWENTY MILES OF IT.  

ANYWAYS, IT IS A VERY INTERESTING EXPERIENCE TO SAY THE LEAST.  IN A WAY IT IS LIKE STEPPING BACK IN TIME.  IT’S HARD TO DESCRIBE IT BUT IT’S LIKE THE CAPITAL OF A STATE IN THE TOWN THE SIZE OF STARKVILLE, MS.

PICTURES TO COME LATER WHEN I CAN FIND WHERE I PACKED MY CAMERA.
