OK, so my wife and I (and I guess my children) are natives of Minnesota
(St. Paul) and I love Minnesota despite the fact that along with North
Korea, Cuba, and China, Minnesota is among a small group of surviving
anyway, I know a little about Minnesota, visited Winona many times and was
thinking it would be spectacular for my first VTR national, now I hear it's
in Hudson, WI, also well known to me since it is 15 miles from St. Paul and
the drinking age was 18 in WI compared with 21 in MN, and yes, the St.
Croix River valley is beautiful, but Winona has the edge (rocky bluffs on
the Mississippi), besides, it would be almost 100 miles closer to Chicago,
so why was it changed?
