North Dakota Warnings and Dangers

  • Winter

    Interstate 94 or US 2 are the only avenues across the state from east-west, and I-29 is the only practical road north-south.

  • North Dakota. Summer Storms

    The weather can change suddenly out on the plains. What looked like an isolated cloudburst soon turned into a torrential downpour that forced us to pull to the side of the road because it was raining and blowing too hard to drive safely.

  • Cactus + biking = Flat tire

    North Dakota has a lot of prickly pear cactus once you get west of the Missouri River.

    Weather is very unpredictable here, so be prepared! Severe thunderstorms and tornadoes can grip the prarie side in no time. Raging blizzards can last days, and are very difficult to drive in, so don't chance it. Make sure you have a cell phone, and a winter survival kit in your car at all times. Do not let your car get below half a tank in the...

    one word: UNPREDICTABLE!! I am talking about the wild buffalo in national parks. If you by chance get close to one do not go up to it, keep your distance. While, they may look lazy and harmless, you can not predict if they will charge you or not. I don't know personally, but it would be uncomfortable to get a sharp horn up your butt(or elsewhere)....
