To get real world for a moment, western NorDak looks low key I envisioned eastern Montana to look like, except greener. I’m in New Salem about a half am how west Of Bismarck and we still have pleasant rolling hills.
ND into western Minn is pleasant. So is Wisc. But i found after hours and hours pleasant all looks the same, which is much less pleasant on long driving days. Glad you are having good weather.
The Great Plains roll more than most people realize. The tabletop flat areas are relatively rare. Average greenness is mostly a matter of precipitation. Going from Montana east of the mountains into middle Minnesota, average annual precipitation doubles.
Eastern Dakota was pretty table-top, or seemed to me. Which is a shame, because that’s the part of the Dakotas I am vaguely interested in looking at when Clancy is done in Queenland.
Will you be driving across northern Indiana? In my experience, that sets the standard for flat. A guy I knew who grew up there described it as, “If it rains two inches it floods everywhere because there’s no ‘down’ for the water to drain.”
I’m not sure I said it on the other thread, but safe trip to you and the fam. Looking forward to you sort of joining the east coast.
One Christmas I took a bus from Denver to St Paul which is about a twelve hour drive. After I had been on the bus for twenty four hours and only made it to Sioux City Iowa I got off the bus and hitchhiked the rest of the way. I beat the bus in by four hours and met several good people.
