Story of the Week

"About two weeks ago, my best friend, Gabi, informed me that she was coming to visit. Gabi lives in Berlin, Germany, and all of her other friends were asking, 'Why would you want to go to North Dakota in the WINTER??' Well, we have had such a great time, snowmobiling, teaching her to shoot a rifle (she's a GREAT shot, by the way! And absolute natural!) and she wanted to go ice fishing!

She has never been ice fishing before, so we did!

What a great day we had, even if we didn't even get a nibble! And now she has great photos and stories to tell to all of other friends back in Berlin! She had so much fun, she is going to come back and visit North Dakota EVERY winter from now on!"
