Fargo North Dakota

Tyler and Seth have both previously road-tripped America, so one goal of ours from the start of the trip was to reach a state that none of us had ever stepped foot in. Along the way, we discovered that North Dakota met this goal, so from Minneapolis, MN we set our courses on Fargo, ND. We were also curious about wood chippers.

When we arrived in Fargo we were not particularly enthralled by what we saw. When our GPS exclaimed, “you have arrived in downtown Fargo,” what we noticed was a sparse skyline with no shortage of boarded up and abandoned store fronts. We parked the bus, briefly contemplated what the hell we could get up to in Fargo, and searched out some coffee to restore our vital energies. We walked around for a while using the train tracks running through the center of town as a reference point, hashing out our plans for the next few days and trying to decide if it would be worth while to go to the roller-disco.

When we returned to the Bus, some kids rolled up in a classic wood-sided station wagon and talked for a while on the roof of our bus. We learned that the nightlife in Fargo is unexpectedly lively, so we saddled up 4 of us on our tandem bike and headed out to the main strip. We had a BLAST! The people were friendly and surprisingly diverse and we accidentally stumbled upon an awesome rap show performed by Blueprint. It was a great time, and again, taught us to reserve our judgements and give each place a chance before we write it off.

Next stop: the Badlands.

Help Fund An Adventure For Good

Well folks, we are on the road! Thanks to over 200 individual and business supporters we have a beautiful bus, some functional production equipment, and enough money to get across the country on ramen, waste vegetable oil, and home-cooked meals whenever they present themselves. We can not appreciate those contributors enough: thanks to everyone who has given so far we are on the adventure of a lifetime and spreading optimism across the nation. We desperately need money for emergency situations (our bus has already broken down once), to contribute to causes across the country (we have a little...we would like a lot), and to make our trip that much healthier (greens are expensive). So check out the site, and contribute if you would like to support three young men on an Adventure for Good.
