    Happy 4th and congrats on day 100!! Can’t wait to see you in the burbs west of Portland :)

  8. Okay, nobody here asked this yet, How can you tell where the state line is????? Is there some kind of little marker out there letting you know what side of what state line you’re on? How do you even know it’s the state line?

    Man, I can’t get over how flat that land is! All there is is green for the bottom and blue for the top. Nothing in between. Wow.

      Probably his gps that lets him know where he is at all times. Ah the wonders of the modern age.

      Happy 4th of July – Happy birthday America.

      • Well I realize that but what about right there on good old planet earth? Maps, GPS, they can all show us what or where it’s supposed to be but I want to know if you have none of those is there a marker out there telling anyone that it’s the state line? How will the animals know where to go? lol.

    Thanks for your 20 days in ND. It is great to see you leaving but also sad to see you go. If you ever find a time in your life to come back you are always welcome in Casselton. Trust me I will not be going anywhere. I hope you had a great fourth, someone must have given you a little show of fireworks out there. Also, I hope you remember how beautiful FLAT is on the rest of your journey. I know you climbed a few feet on your way west thorough the state, but it will be nothing like what you will face in MT. However I know ND can be boring, but the Rockies how ever tough will be as scenic as anything you have seen so far. I wish you well in MT, it will take a while but when it’s over, you will almost be able to see the Pacific. P.S. my girls miss you and wish you well.

  11. Dennis from So Cal says:

    Congratuations Matt! Get ready for Montana. I hope you brought along some climbing shoes. We look forward to watching the Rockies grow on your horizon.

  12. Angelica says:

    aww, I’m kind of sad that you left North Dakota already since that was my favorite state so far, but Montana looks beautiful too! Congratulations on passing Day 100 and on getting to Montana! And happy belated 4th of July…your journey epitomizes everything America stands for. :)

  13. Nate says:

    I’m wondering if the farmer here has land deeds from two different states. Does he pay property taxes in two different states? What about sales tax on things he purchases from one supplier? Is there a state law which says he has to keep the exact border fallow?

  14. Candice in Alabama says:

    Looks like a corn “road”.

  15. Barb V from Michigan says:

    Day 100, 4th of July, crossing into Montana! Whoo-hoo! Congratulations, Matt! Seems like there should have been a firework celebration or something. :)

  16. Dodey from Mandan ND says:

    there is a town not too far from here – Fairfield MT – that is on both sides of the state line – that’s a strange one for taxes!
