Any snow starved western to central minnesotans need to cure the itch?? Well we trailered out to Oakes North Dakota, about 2.5 hours straight west of Alexandria, with limited expectations. About an hour from Hankinson ND (Dakota Magic casino). Well upon arrival in town they maybe had 6 inches, not to impressive but with the ND wind, the ditches were full and very rideable! Put on 100 miles maybe 5 of those miles were on thin conditions. The ditches were wide and fairly smooth! Even suitable for not your average ditch rider like my wife! Overall great trip, on good snow conditions.
