I'm originally from Minnesota. The issue won't be up there, it'll be what you have to go through to get there (as many others have already posted). Best bet is to keep track of the forecast, don't push for too many miles per day and if it gets nasty -- well you have your "house" behind you and you can just pull in somewhere and wait it out. The best news is that it is now March...in my experience, February is the WORST month up there for cold weather. It is not unusual, though to see snow in April...

Ahh, Nick -- clever as always! Couldn't she just PM you the receipt?

You'll be here long before the forecast Sunday night winter storm arrives. Stretch your legs -- avoid peacock feathers.

Nice to see a post from someone from St. Cloud. My hometown! I'm also proud to say I've not been back there in February since I graduated from college. Other seasons, yes.

Just arrived safely at MPLS after two days and 1500 miles. There were a few snow flurries and poor visibilty at first in IL. About twenty vehicles had spun off the road in the Waterloo area of IA, particularly on 218, presumably yesterday. Many of the vehicles were still stuck in the snow off the highway.
The forecasts were all very accurate, and thanks for all the advice.
Nick.
