fastest would be 94 to 494 to 169. That will run you right into kato. Follow the signs for MSU and you will see the camp.

The main drag is closed in St. Peter so you'll experience a little detour through town. If you can, turn left onto HWY 22 by Arby's in St. Peter and take that to Mankato.

Once in Mankato, take a right at the second stop light after Wal-Mart. This will take you past Mankato East High School and come to another stop light with the MN State Patrol on your left. Turn left here and at the next stop light, turn right and head towards the water tower.

The next stop light will be at All Seasons Arena (right side of the intersection). Turn left at All Seasons Arena and go to the next light. The MSU Field will be to your right.

Sorry I don't have street names listed. This is the route I take to get to the MSU Campus.

Oh yea? Thanks, thought they were charging for camp now. Might have to take the kids down there.

A few more directions that might help:

Once you see the signs for MSU, take the "early exit" off of Playoff Parkway.

Take the next right on Letdown Lane, but be careful since it merges with Overrated Road and it's very easy to get confused which one you're on.

The MSU Field is across the road from the Heartbreak Hotel and you can park in the lot near the street vendor selling "hope". You can't miss this guy because he'll have quite a crowd around him.

Sandmannd, if you take the kids buy them each a ball or something and a sharpie before you go and about a half hour or so before the practice is scheduled to be over with walk them over to the fence on Stadium Road where the players walk from the practice fields over to the training facility and locker rooms. The players will stop and give autographs, my 3 boys have a blast getting to talk to the players and get autographs from them and guys like AP really have a soft spot for the kids. My boys got some great autographs last weekend. Winfield, Leber, Greenway, Hutchinson, Longwell, Kluwe, Kleinsasser, C. Taylor, Loadholt....well you get the picture. The kids will have a great time talking to them, just remind them to give a "thank you" to the players that take the time to come over and spend some time with them.

Let us know how it goes.

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
