[quote]I've been in the northeast six years, and I've never known a single person that has done this, wants to do this, or even knows where to go if they did.

re: Olds who left heat of the south to live in the cold winter of the north? Was it worth it? - JasonL79
I wouldn’t trade North Dakota’s winters for LA summers. At least I can do things in LA (fishing, swimming,road trip, beaches, etc) outside during those 3 extreme (mid June - Mid Sept) months. I may avoid the middle of the day back home when I can but can still get out. Not much you can do during...

re: Olds who left heat of the south to live in the cold winter of the north? Was it worth it? - JasonL79
I’m from south Louisiana but have been up in North Dakota for over a year. The spring/summer/fall seasons are all nice but I find the winters up here depressing. 6+ months of winter temps and 3-4 months with possible negative temps and 30-50mph winds. Frostbite warnings on exposed skin in 5-10 minut...

re: What’s the ugliest/least scenic state in the United States? - JasonL79
I’m not from North Dakota but have been here the last year for work and it’s far from the ugliest state. There are lots of open plains but the areas on the Missouri river and lakes are all scenic. And like others have mentioned the badlands are also unique and scenic. Pics taken with my iPhone so ...
