$45k ?

Hahahahahahahahahhhahahah......... thats what 3 years old and 60k miles now.

Yep, new pickup, base is more than that. 
The young guys you see driving brand new pickups paid 65k+.
How? Well, it's simple, they live in a 1 bed apartment, and own nothing else other than their $850/month truck payment.

They're owned/leased by the young guys' employer, and the business writes off the payments.

I'm not talking about the guys driving their employers trucks. 
I'm talking about the other 90% who own and have nothing, other than a massive truck payment. But, they can show everyone their cool truck I guess.

As proof that I am capable of posting something positive, I can update that as of this week, both signals are up and functioning! 

However...the "University of North Dakota" illuminated signage on the skywalk is now partially obscured. Win some, lose some. :)

Living in town, I haven't noticed. Now I'll have to look.

If I wanted a 295 HP pickup, I'd buy a soccer mom crossover.
Lot's of middle aged suburban couples thinking they are cool I guess buying that thing they call a pickup.
Sure, I'll take that pickup that can barely haul a pop up camper.

Here's a crazy idea. 

Put stop lights up at all the entrances/exits to the Alerus Center to help manage the traffic flow after events.

*activated only for events.

Traffic officers can achieve the same result but the problem is bigger. Some 80-90% of the AC’s parking is to the south, and a lot of people exit to southbound 42nd St, only to encounter a long, double-curve stretch of two-lane road before reaching 32nd Ave., I-29, and points beyond.  And the last block is the worst, with a gas station and retail meeting 42nd at an uncontrolled intersection.

Exiting to the north isn’t much better because the Demers interchange with I-29 is narrow, antiquated, and I’ll-equipped for a large volume of traffic.

Unavoidable truth is, despite the proximity of the arena to the freeway, it’s accessibility is terrible.

When they are there.

But they aren't always there.

Like tonight.

Guess what happened.

Traffic lights. 

Problems solved

Forever.

Go the the GF city website and use their 311 reporting service.   Sign up or Log in - report your issue - and BOOM it gets taken care of asap.   I reported a hideous pothole near me on Monday - got a prompt reply that day saying they'd be "on it" as soon as possible.   Went to work today and it was still there but later today when I headed hoem it was taken care of.   Less than 48 hours from complaint to resolution.   It handles a lot of complaints from potholes to abandoned bikes to !@#!$ neighbors to street lights out.   The city can't be everywhere all the time but if you point out issues they will take care of them.   That's a city government that works in my book!
