Questions for those in north dakota

I'm a welder who's got a possible job opportunity out in North Dakota (Minot to be exact) looking at moving out in august.

What's the wheeling situation like?
Are spots plentiful or far an few in between?
What is the main terrain? (Eg. Rocks, trails, mud)

hey, welcome to the North Dakota area. check out the north dakota thread, lots of pics and vids. there is a group out of minot as well. I myself am in fargo. as far as terrain, I am assuming wooded trails, mud, down in bismark, there is the sand. not sure of rocks, but that is all just a drive away, south dakota. hope this helps.

It did. I was supposed to fly out next week for a couple different interviews and to visit family, but couldn't get the time off of work. Looks like it's a trip for later this year. Really nervous about winter if I move out there. Cause I freeze my a$$ off down here in ohio.

I live in Bismarck and have been wheeling here for years. There are many section lines if you know a few people. but there is a off-road area south of Bismarck that we frequent. glendive, mt is 200 miles and has a huge off-road area and black hills in sd are not far away

Hey everyone! I moved to dickinson a few months ago and have been curious about where there is to wheel out here. I have heard a lot about the black hills (my father in law is retiring there in feb!) and Montana, but is there much close if your not in tight with any land owners? My rig could use some love before wheelin, but I'd like to know what's out here. Moved from Washington state where there's tons of trails and (surprise!) mud.

I need to update my prof, but I've got a 94 ZJ 4.0, now with~5" and 32's. Think a bearing got weak on me while moving out here and haven't had a chance or a place to crack into it and find out for sure!

Black Hills and a few areas in Minnesota past the Red River Valley are the closest with anything established that you'll find. There might be some public areas down in the Badlands in the South West corner of the state.

Even if you know some people with land most wont let you on it, my family being one of them, the land is just worth to much for farming and hunting to let any of it be out of production. I don't even like driving across some of my land cause it can be torn up so easily and is a pain to knock all the ruts and such back down so it can be farmed.

Thats good to hear. Grand forks is a bit of a trek for me, but I want to get around the state a little and see things anyways. Let us know when the fb page is up!
