Brrrrr! Lived in St. Paul (Mendota Heights) for ten years when our kids
were small. Trailer sailed all the city lakes and many Northern lakes.
When we first moved there a neighbor told us that everyone is very outdoor oriented; skiing, cross country skiing, snowmobiling, hockey, ice fishing
, even ice boating
. I said that was great to hear but those were all winter activities and asked what they did in the summer. He responded, "on that day we play basketball." And I thought he was kidding!
Now we live aboard in Southern California
. Keep the dream warm.
