I'm from S.E. MN. I live about and hour and a half south of Minneapolis. There are a bunch of OSO'ers form the area. There are some that live in or near Minneapolis. A bunch of us boat on the Mississippi River. There is an annual guys only spring run next Friday(may 7th). I'm just a passenger so I can't offer you a ride. Hopefully some of the other locals will chime.
I'm sure Troutly will have something smart to say.
