Its amazing what a difference 300 miles farther north makes when you are this close to the Arctic Circle.

For those that remember this Poll about is it a mountain or a basin..

The answer is that that big oval bowl shaped thing, is the Turtle Mountains on the North Dakota/Canada Border. I was very unsure which it would be until I got there and saw that it was rolling hills jutting out of flat plains...and I have to admit that I was surprised by that, as well as by how many people guessed correctly

I was talking with my Dad last night while he was calling to show off his new VOIP phone (Amid protestations of "I'm not a geek...really!" yeh, right Dad) and we got on the subject of Gas Prices. He asked what we were paying up here($2.61) and commented that they were paying about $2.89 in Wyoming(where he lives in smalltownville at least). Then he went on to comment that when we'd moved to Wyoming in '81 he was paying $1.30 for gas the whole way, driving a massive U haul truck and that it was probably comparable.

Today I dug up the inflation chart and ran $1.30 though it.....it works out to about $2.91. Guess Dad was right that fuel was just catching up to what it had cost back then.
