I'm spending a year up there starting next week working for the VA.
Suggestions on what to do there.
I know...after Kirby Puckett died,Prince is the only black man left up there in Minnesota.
Go to the Cowboys game?
I'd probably attend a TWolves game or two. Not because they are great or anything, but because, really, what else are you going to do?
Vikes tickets I'd assume are hard to come by.
Snowmobile in the winter and fish the rest of the time.
You can see Randy Moss part 2, plus alot of blonde haired women.
I lived in NE Minnesota for 7-8 years, Minnesota is awesome. If you like the outdoors like me, its even better.
I live in Phoenix now and there is just as much to do down here as there is in Minneapolis.
I only been up there during the summer - but better get some warm clothes - I heard two guys talking said that was the coldest town the ever lived in
You can watch the Mighty Ducks take on the Hawks.
Always park your car facing south.
I lived in Fairbanks,AK and West Michigan.
I'm battle tested.
I heard there are two seasons in Minneapolis... Summer and Road Construction. It seems that there is so much snow & ice that many of the roads have to be replaced every few years. Very clean down town area, with a cool 2nd foor tunnel system that connects the downtown buildings (so you don't have to navigate the snowed-in streets).
Called the skywalk IIRC
Get a heavy jacket.
Ice fish in the winter
Hunt/fish in the summer
Buy a case of "Off". Biggest skeeters you've ever seen.
That honor belongs to the Fairbanks skeeters.
They call them Alaska State Birds.
I made it safely.And missing my family so bad it hurts.
Hang in there man, it's always tough to be away from family.
It's what they made comfort women for.
