You could stay in St.Louis Park at the Double tree Inn and take an Uber cab back and forth.  Then you could eat at any of the restaurants in the West End, all of which are walking distance from hotel.

I will check that out right now.  Thanks

Hey we stayed there about 3 years ago and met family at Dovers.  Had a great time.  Now to get tickets.  AND haven't done the Uber thing.  Are they reliable and on time?  I guess it would be fun to go to the new stadium early and check things out.

For Uber, you install the app on you phone.  You click the button and with a min/two someone will accept you and you watch the little 'car' icon drive right to you.  I recently took my family to Chicago and it is all that we used for 4 days straight.  It worked great!  You fill your card information into the app, so there is no cash exchanged.

If you are with a group and need a larger vehicle, you select UberXL.  These are vehicles with third row seating.  Suburban, SUV, mini van.

Thanks Bartman.  That sounds great and easy.  Good info.  It looks like tickets won't be on sale till mid July through Ticketmaster if any are available.  I want to try the Uber thing now.

Another option to consider is staying a hotel by the Mall of America and taking the light rail to the stadium. The light rail will be packed, but you can't beat it for convenience. I don't know if the hotels at the MOA charge more or less than other hotels, but it's something to look into if you'll be coming with anyone else who would like to visit the MOA while you're in town.

I see there is a Comfort Inn by the Mall that has an Outback Steakhouse.  They said if I get tickets they will shuttle us to the train and the train will bring us right to the stadium.

I just spent a week in California and used UBER out there and it was so easy, convenient and super fast. Way better experience than using an over priced dirty taxi.

For example, I had a 6:20 am flight yesterday out of San Diego. Set my alarm for 4am, hit the uber button at 4:10am. Driver picked my family of 4 at 4:14am and we were at the airport at 4:21am. Once your ride is complete it will email you a receipt. He drove us 2.24 miles and it cost me $5. 

No way I could have did that via taxi.

    • Sounds perfect, thinking your guys reviews will seal the deal for me once I can see one in person again, a hyfax kit will also be on my list as I plan on pulling it behind my sportsman 570. Thanks for the review also AAmerican, it's early to be thinking ice fishing but I'm sure there's people out there like us that are a little anxious!
    • The Chippewa flowage would be a great place to start. I will be honest. Walleye are not what I have ever chosen to Target when I fish up there but the flowage is a great fishery.    Nelson lake would be another choice.
    • I have had 3 of the otter pro xt's, a cabin, lodge and resort. I still have the resort and recently purchased the cabin. I have not had many different brand portables but have fished in other brands buddies have. They are the nicest portables I have personally owned and until I try something I like more I wouldn't change from them at all. The resort is heavy and not something I like dragging far by hand especially loaded with gear and much snow on the lakes. But it has tons of room and I have fished 4 people in it before, a little tight but doable. The cabin I purchased for more hand pulling and an extra for if I have people along. They are very warm and I have fished in them down to -30 deg F. A regular buddy heater keeps them plenty warm, if it isn't to cold or the house is banked well its easily t-shirt weather inside. The resort needs a big buddy heater for colder days sometimes due to the larger size but isn't terrible with a regular. Overall very happy with them all and have been very durable. Also no dripping of water from the ceiling. Highly recommend a set of hyfax for the bottom. I had over 1000 miles pulling my old lodge and they hyfax held up great but I always pulled on snow and not across asphalt much at all.   Changes I have made to them: - added a battery box and inside LEDs  - used stainless screws on the band that hods the fabric to the tub only because I don't like the look of the rusted screws.     If you think you'll be purchasing one I would recommend stopping at a Gander Mountain if you have one near by and getting a set of hyfax since they are going out of business there is a good amount of ice gear. I found hyfax recently there for $15 a set.
    • We are on Lake Edward at WildWoods RV resort just north of Merrifield, MN. It is nice just driving up, unlocking it, playing for the weekend and locker her back up and leaving the frig on.  They let Atheists and Jesus freaks all in!
    •   My wife and I are starting to think about parking ours someplace. I'm tired of trying to get reservations and having to hook and unhook and all that goes with a weekend of camping. Plus I would like to have the toys available like 4-wheeler and boat.   We are looking at places up north. We know several people and like the Emily-Outing-Remer-Hill City area. I think you a further west, right? Brainerd area maybe?  
    •   5 years at one campground until they went private and wanted 60-70g's per lot with one-just-like-silly-me-o-en fees which were about what we were paying yearly already on top of that!  12 years where we are now with way bigger lots.
    •   Too bad the previous owner didn't know what they were doing. Never, ever use silicone on a rubber camper roof. I learned that the hard way many years ago.....   At least you have a good reason to have to go to the camper this weekend    How long have you been doing the seasonal thing?
    • Thanks for the reply, sounds about like what I expected and I really like the square tubing on the otters compared to clams round cheaper setup. Anyone seen any changes to the new otter lineup for this year? 
    • Last weekend spent some time re-sealing a small seam leak on a trim edge. Found out the owner before us had a leak on the same trim edge spot and left out a screw!! Also washed down the canopy and the ever reoccurring black streaks around the roof edge.   This weekend may go back and clean out and reseal a few other areas the passed own made a mess of sealing with sillycone! Using Butyl rubber this time as silicone can be pulled right off after a few years.
