Hey Ed or Anyone,

I would assume that you live in ND somewhere and I am moving there any suggestions on where to start looking for a place to live? I will be working in Fargo but would prefer not to live in Fargo. Good small towns to check out? Places to Avoid?

Thanks
Chev

Try taking a look at Casselton it is a nice growing community that is only 20 miles from Fargo. It is a town that is growing quite a few nice housing developments there. There is also Kindred and Horace to the SW both are also pretty nice.

Try Christine ND, or another great Small town is Abercrombie. They are just South of Fargo/Moorhead on old #81.

Both have low tax's, and very friendly folks, about 1/2 hour or less from Fargo/Moorhead. Your out of the big boom of all the new developments, so the prices are fair yet.

Oh Ya...and the most impotent part....Lots of great fishing/hunting near both locations.

Your very Welcome Chevy.

Good hunting for that new place.

I live near Horace, but I sure would have grabbed a place where I mentioned if I had found one at the time.

We have developments popping up like dandelions here now, getting kinda crowded for me Eh.

Won't be TOO #%^ long before I start to look again?

Maybe to the North...Eh?

Hey Ed,

Found a place just west of Walcott. About 30 miles outside Fargo. Should be a neat place. Lots of deer/pheasants. Maybe sometime after I get settled in you could teach me the ways of the Red.

Take it easy

Cool, Walcott is a good choice, roam the Sheyenne River grasslands. Lots of fishing and hunting all over that region, or darn close by.

Drop me an email some time, maybe we can do a walk-about and show you a few spots.

Hey Ed,

Holy Smokes are the mosquitos thick up here! I drove home from work tonight at 9:45pm...(S. Fargo to past Walcott) and by the time I got home I couldn't see outta the windshield. We need a hard freeze to kill these buggers!

I need a windshield protector or something to take skeeters off it. grin.gif

Happy Fishing
Chev

    • Was at Long Point this past weekend. Lots of small fish, no slots from us......
    • Ill let dealer plug into computer and see what shows up. 
    • Pigger steak on the grill, taters and corn. Yea yea, I get docked etiquette points for no serving dishes.
    • I suppose there is no check engine light code plug in on those like a car? Sometimes you can read and clear a misfire code. Did you try switching plugs out on the trail?
    • Had scratchers down but probably didn't matter much. Wasn't overheating and temp on gauge stayed at 160. Another guy in club thought it might also be bad gas and a misfire settting off check engine. Ill see what they come up with when they plug into computer. As far as electronic reverse lots of problems with it on internet. Fuse wasn't blown and I also bought and changed the 2 relays that people have had problems with and still nothing. I think the Servo motor crapped out as those have had problems to. I just hope it doesn't take to long to fix as spring is around the corner  
    • Wow, sorry to hear all that.I call it the Northshore curse!  Did you have your scratchers down? Or do you think it's just a short somewhere?  😟
    • it takes some practice. I was skeptical at first also but friends did great on them so made the switch and I use them 95% of the time for gills and crappies now.  Still learning
    • Made it up to Silver Bay for a ride on Saturday. Got about 15-20 miles down trail and sled starts to miss and wants to die and check engine light comes on. Shut it off and look things over and everything looks OK and not overheating. Start back up and runs fine for about 10 miles and does same thing. Did this about 4 times till we got to Trestle Inn. Im thinking its bad gas so was going to go put some premium in it to see if that helps. Start machine and put in reverse and back up and hit button to take out of reverse and nothing happens. Reverse fail comes up on gauges not good. Only good thing was stranded in Trestle Inn parking lot instead of woods. Gave guy I was riding with my car keys to come back with my truck and trailer and went and drank beer for a couple hours. Finally get everything back to motel and get organized and come back out to get some stuff out of truck and step on back of trailer and it flips up. Someone must have helped themselves to my tilt trailer pin as it would have never fell out on its own. Had to run to town on Sunday and round up a pin for trailer and dropping off sled at dealer tomorrow. At least its still under warranty.  
    • Thanks Presidents for the day off!  😁   Went back over to the same trails by Orock and hit it pretty hard to burn off some of the carbon I built up pulling the grandkids and sleigh around the other day. The trails were groomed and not bad but the groomer seemed to have put some pretty deep grooves in the trails around the corners. Never really saw that before anywhere? 🤔 There were a few folks out but no where near last weekend. My top end rebuild seems to be breaking in pretty well and the compression has been going up the last few rides so hopefully I'm almost there. 🤗    
    • I picked up some impulse mayfly plastics and mud bug jigs. I have tried plastics in the past with mixed results. I expect good things from the impulse mayflys. It would be nice not to have to mess with live bait.
