The workers here at Roughrider Campground were coming in from the work sites, covered in mud and dust. I assume they do it for the high wages, most of them coming from all parts of the country. As I write this post I am watching this young buck sitting on his pickup truck tail gate talking on his cell phone most likely to his girl friend back home. Nothing has changed except the years.
I could write several posts on the railroads around these parts of the country. Freight trains run all night long and are at least a mile long. I don't think we haven't had one night sleep anywhere without hearing a train go by and blowing the whistle. The tracks parallel US 2 for many miles and one can see railroad workers doing mainteneance on the tracks. There are usually several crews separated by a few hundred feet apart with each crew having a different type of machine on the tracks doing something different, all in all they can strecth for a mile or so.

Our campground in Grand Forks was pleasant and our neighbors next to us had this cute little camper, now that's small compared to ours, but they were just coming home from a trip to Nova Scotia having also stayed in North Conway, NH They live in Winnipeg, Manitoba,Canada.
