North Dakota Dreamin’

I do check the weather pretty consistently before I travel, and I am pretty sure that while I saw very cold temps for North Dakota (and chose to bring my big dog-walking parka instead of a “cute” D.C. coat), even I did not anticipate the near white-out conditions when I landed in Bismark, N.D., earlier …

What’s Not to Love About a Rural-Focused Entrepreneur?

A Side Trip to Ketchikan to See KPU

Don and I took advantage of NTCA’s Regional Conference in Alaska to tag on one of our “bucket list” wishes—to take a cruise through the Alaskan Inside Passage. And what a trip it was. We had a lovely boat, great food (ugh, I’m feeling a few extra days in the gym as payback!), interesting folks on …
