We awoke today to snow falling on the ground and temperatures in the mid 30’s. It’s a far cry from the past week as we’ve settled here in Medora in answer to a job looking for golf course employees. More about that in a minute. Medora is located a mere mile off Interstate 94 in western North Dakota. It’s a town of, now get this 96 people. However, when the season begins here at Memorial Day, the throngs swell to the thousands and this hamlet becomes a mecca of the tourism trade. I’ve been hired as a starter/player assistant and Robin will be working in the pro shop at the Bully Pulpit Golf Course. Medora and the golf course both lie at the south entrance of the Theodore Roosevelt National Park. In fact, the course takes it’s name from the fact that when he was on a rant, or filibustering, or just espousing his own brand of wisdom, T. R said he was speaking from the “bully pulpit”. I’ll get tell you more of the story behind all this in perhaps tomorrow’s edition. Our workamper experience is being delayed , due to the fact that the course opening has been put back for a few weeks. For the first time in history, the Little Missouri River flooded its banks last week and about a third of the fairways, greens and tees have been deluged with silt, debris and anything a swollen river can leave behind in it’s aftermath. There is a unique way to clean this mess and we’ll photograph this tomorrow but for now, we both have to get out our waterproof coveralls, find some rubber boots and gloves and head into town to get some BenGay as it looks as if we’ll need it.
