The only other sighting relatively close, or at least reported, occurred in 1986 due south of the town.

I looked up a wind chill chart which had the temp's and wind speed in increments of 5. I don't know for sure but I would think there would be some wind blowing in later December in No. Dakota but to be on the conservative side:

Wind speed of 5mph, 35 degrees feels like 31, 30 deg. feels like 25.

Wind speed of 10mph, 35 deg. feels like 27, 30 deg. feels like 21.

Wind speed of 20mph, 35 deg. feels like 24, 30 deg. feels like 17.

 

Aren't the prairies known for the wind blowing a lot?

I would guess there was wind, but could not find the data on it. It is probably out there somewhere (everything else is...) with the right search.

I heard these same kind of glowing reports with the London track way. 

Now to be most likely a hoax

Anyone who thinks "most likely a hoax" would have to give me an explanation.

We see photos of individual tracks but not the trackway itself??

 

If I was a reporter I'd wanna see the trackway and no mistake!

 

North Dakota has a lot of snowmobiles. It would not have been that hard to come up with something.

 

So I'm rating this one with 2 and 1/2 Sheesh!es and a Huh?

Cliff Barrackman. Is a good source. 

 

I've been a proponent of that trackway's authenticity but Cliff has given a very good explanation for his doubts.   I forget where it was ... youtube interview, though.   What he said is that the toe flex appears to be in a vertical plane, no side to side changes in toe splay from track to track.     If correct, and it probably is else he wouldn't say it, there is new reason for caution.    

 

I'm not abandoning it, either: Cliff was not the only researcher casting tracks.   'til a couple others join in agreement, the jury remains out, at least for me.

Thanks for explaining it. In an email from him he says he will explain in more detail when he completes his research on it.
