Time Flies When You're Having Fun!

Sullys Hill National Game Preserve
St Michael, ND

Wow! June is almost done. We've been here at Sullys Hill for 4 weeks now and time is flying by. We are having a blast! We'll be here thru the end of August, then headed towards Middlebury, Indiana where we'll be attending Entegra University, a 4-day in-depth training class on our Anthem motorhome. We'll also be meeting up with Jim & Deb in Michigan where they are workamping this summer; and were hoping to change out our couch and dining table while we're in Indiana.





We're getting lots of sunshine and outdoor work this summer.....


Staining the exterior of the visitor center......





.....lots of mowing, weed wacking and landscaping.....




....and repainting signs.






We got our ATV/UTV certifications in February.....








                                                          .....then added Ag Tractor......
Check out the video





...and Skid Steer last week!


















The wildlife and scenery here is spectacular...














We visited a couple of local Points of Interest.....

Turtle Mountain Reservation

and Rugby, ND. The geographic
center of North America


While driving into town we spotted an unusual boat approaching one of the numerous boat ramps on Devils Lake.....

It's an M30 Bridge Builder.being tested after delivery to the Arny Engineering Regiment near  Camp Grafton at Devils Lake. The M30 is repacing the MK11 which has been in use by the Army for nearly 30 years.





Here's a link about the M30 if your interested....

Here's what happens when the wind and weather conditions line up on Devils Lake......

These folks were catching white bass as fast as they could throw out a line. Shoulder to shoulder, catching on consecutive casts. Almost everyone of these folks caught 3-4 fish in the 5 minutes we pulled over to watch.






Shout out to Joan's Dad, Tommy....just turned 86 on Sunday....














....the same day Joan and I celebrated our wedding anniversary.









Well, that's about it for now. Stay Tuned. More to Come.

  1. Looks like a nice spot for the summer. How come Joan didn’t toss in a line and catch some fish?
