Strike gold at JunkFest in Carrington

Vacation gold.  That’s what many travelers to North Dakota tell us they’ve found along their journey.  Visitors write and tell us about the friendly people, the beautiful scenery, the adventures, the great food and the lasting memories.

Vacation memories truly are treasures – and if you’re looking to combine the two, journey to Carrington on September 17 for Autumn JunkFest – an event known for turning memories into treasures.  Visitors find antiques and “junk” refurbished and repurposed for home and garden.  There is also a popular Flea Market.

The Carrington area has great attractions and lodging options for more vacation memories.  Consider a tour of historic Putnam House – a 4,300 square foot home built in 1907 and featuring family history and museum collections.

Dakota Sun Gardens Winery of Carrington offers garden tours and wine tasting.

In nearby Jamestown, visitors can delight in pioneer history at the Frontier Village and the National Buffalo Museum.  The museum cares for a live buffalo herd with three very rare albino bison.

And in nearby Cooperstown, tour the Ronald Reagan Minuteman Missile State Historic Site.  The reality of the Cold War is best experienced with a trip underground to see mission control.

These attractions recently partnered with North Dakota Tourism in a sweepstakes promoted by Country Living magazine.  The winner, Amy Pater, will also be treated to a stay in a luxury cabin at Lakeview Meadow resort in Jamestown, two nights at the Carrington Inn and Suites and dining extras!

Interesting history – found through treasures, experiences and travel – can make your trip to North Dakota golden.  For more visitor stories, be sure to visit www.RUlegendary.com.

Rooting for Jim and the Vikings

Here in North Dakota you’ll find a lot of fans of the Minnesota Vikings NFL team.  There are fans of other teams too, but I’m not going to write about them … with the exception of the friendly foe in the office next door – a fan of “America’s team” as she calls her Cowboys.  This Sunday, I’m crossing fingers and toes that the Vikings crush the Cowboys!

One player we especially root for is Vikings fullback and tight end, Jim Kleinsasser.  Kleinsasser hails from Carrington, North Dakota – a standout high school player who attended the University of North Dakota and was drafted 44th in 1999.  He’s currently being called the best blocking tight end in the league and I’m hoping that the next four (fingers crossed) weeks will be awesome for him and the rest of the Purple crew.

If anyone has any suggestions for friendly bets with my colleague – post clean ideas here!
