    When I get back from ISH

    I'll be heading to Fargo, ND for a seminar with my friends at RSES. The details are on the home page of this site.

    This is my first trip to North Dakota and I'm really looking forward to it!

    Dan's Fargo seminar

    Where better than Fargo to teach heating? Ah, a man of great extremes he is. Outside, it'll be 17 below; Dan will be there with a tropical glow, bronzed by a Hawaiian sun, probably wearing one of those big print flowered shirts with short sleeves. I wish I could be there to bask in knowledge at the feet of the great Hydronics Maharishi, refreshed from a month of radiant contemplation. There really is no better time to attend a Holohan seminar than the one in Fargo. Imagine: he's just returned from a month of hibernation, juiced and optimized. What a learning experience that would be!

    country is cold and desolate. I have heard there are only 2 things you do there in the winter. I leave it to all your imaginations of what they are. :O

    Fargo, ND

    Never did see the movie; what brand of chipper was used? The Crary-Bearcat line of chipper/shredders is (or was, I'm not sure now) made in Grand Forks, ND, north of Fargo on 29. I use one on my tractor, but for wood, not, uhh..."limbs"!

    Aww c'mon ....

    By the end of March all the "snow tanned" Fargo beach babes will be showing off their rabbit fur bikinis, while sitting on their PWC (Personal Water Craft) along the rising Red River!

    State Tree

    The state tree in North Dakota is the telephone pole.
  • One of those big square states

    out in the middle of the country.

    Did you hear about the guy that moved from SD to ND and raised the IQ of both states?

    The earth is so flat out there

    That if your dog runs away, you can watch him for three days...
  • So are you in

    SD or ND?
  • Indeed, I would love to visit.

    Somehow I missed much of the middle country during my business travels and when we hauled the 5th wheel around.
    I love trains and tugs and travelling to watch them. Maybe as soon as Granddaughter grows some more, we have her 3 days a week now.

    Sorry to wander off topic here guys.

    electric costs

    I heard electric rates were so low there (>.03cents), that most people heat with electric. Not really a lot of hydronic activity.

    Fargo , the movie was great !

    Despite the jokes,

    I can't wait! Never been.

    I set out years ago to do a seminar in all 50 states. I've got many of them, and most of the tough ones, but not this one. ND, here I come!

    Thanks for inviting me.

    Dan

    Is there going to be any steam component in the seminar?
    If so I know of at least 3 people who would be interested.
    Thanks
    PS the email on the schedule does not seem to work. Could you possibly check it for accuracy.
    Thanks again

    Sorry about the email address. I fixed it. It's [email protected]

    electric rates

    Indeed, our electricity rates are quite low, between 3 and 7 cents/KWH, at least in the SW part of North Dakota, where I am (Montana-Dakota Utilities). Very little electric heat in evidence locally; mostly gas FA w/ A/C, some HWBB, very little steam. On the farmsteads, there is more LPG heat, wood and coal occasionally...

    Several

    Of my close friends went to University of North Dakota in Grand Forks. Also one of our apprentices went to North Dakota State. I always enjoyed our visits to North Dakota as the people know how to have fun.

    No, just a visitor

    I live in metro Denver, but have made the trip to Mott the past couple of years. It is the craziest bird hunting I've ever seen with flushes in the hundreds of birds. But is a little piece of heaven for me.

    Hide-away-Camp

    is where we stay and hunt. But this may change as the owners leased the property to some outfitters and the cost may be going up considerably. Here is a link to the website: http://www.theridgeresort.com/hideawayhunting.htm .

    A word of caution hunting there, it is very tough on the dogs and large hunting parties are best. Last year we hunted two full sections of grass, millet and stubble with four guys and two dogs. We had a lot of birds just running away from us and flushing 200-300 yards ahead of us. We still got 22 birds (in three days) and 19 were mature roosters with tail feathers up to 22 inches long. We had one day with 65 mph sustained winds with stronger gusts, pretty amazing seeing a pheasant catch a tailwind and fly away at over 100 mph. What a blast!

    Have fun Dan!

    Dan:

    I have made a couple of trips to Grand Forks and found it to be a very nice place to visit. These are hard-working people who put up with a lot of crappy weather (and yes, devastating Red River flooding) and keep bouncing back. I'm not sure about Fargo but if Grand Forks represents, then you are in for a good experience.
