Flash River Safari has gone overland…


Welcome to the new North Dakota economy



MINOT, North Dakota


North Dakota is the #1 economy in the country fueled in part by a booming IT/Tech industry. Driving across the state (with my canoe) en route to the Mississippi River, I pulled into the city of Minot to put a face on this new economy – in the form of a successful software engineer named Kevin Mitchell and his co-worker Brenda Kast. Here, I learned that the success of education, farming, oil, as well as the governor’s platform, at least in this state, successfully revolves around information technology.

    Nice job. Never would have guessed this about North Dakota. One of our former principals runs an inn in Mt. Rushmore. Once again-small world=big news.
