I don’t think anyone expected a Californian to visit North Dakota, and I have to admit, I don’t think I would have ever gone there if not for my objective of hitting every state. Before setting out, I didn’t know much about North Dakota itself except how ﬂat the land is. People had told me it’s so ﬂat you could see the curve of the earth on the horizon.

As I took the ﬂoor to speak, I looked around the room and knew I couldn’t adequately express my thanks, my thoughts, or my reﬂections on the whole experience. I was overwhelmed by their kindness, that they had taken me in and treated me as one of their own.
