Washburn, North Dakota
At Washburn airfield, North Dakota.
It's blowing a gale today, with some shower squalls, so no flying, so went by road to visit the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center, and the replica of old Ft Mandan. I've often thought that if I was a young fella in those days, I would have wanted to be on such an expedition into unknown territory. But seeing the size of the accommodation that about 40 men had to cram into for all those winter months, rules it out for me. You'd have to be a very sociable and tolerant fella to survive that; not a place for a dedicated loner like me.....
