I know its too late, and I know my personal opinion don't mean a hill of beans to the politicians, but I always thought a GREAT place for the Twins stadium would be right on the river, Minneapolis or St Paul side, I don't care. The reason I like this idea is like in San Francisco- make a water bound home run kind of cool and special. Make it like 500 feet out, put either the right or left field wall out there. PS- to pay for a retractable roof- put a toll road up on 94 and Hwy 36, make the Wisconsin people that come over for jobs, but want cheaper housing pay for it.

Brookdale shopping center is in nowhere land? It's only 5 minutes north of where their talking about putting the stadium now.

This site would be like the old Met. Wouldn't it be nice to be able to tailgate before games in the parking lot again?

I agree building in the outer parts of the metro would have its bennifits, such as- tailgating, and extra parking, and if they build it in places other then downtown it would be easier to get to, meaning less downtown traffic, drive in and drive out. They would put a rail system in , Im sure! But it will never happen, it will be built where they have plans to do it now, and in 10 years they will be whinning they need a new one built in a better and bigger area, I thought alot of it had to do with parking revenue, they still wont be getting that, building where they have plans now.

Personally, I think they got the location right, a downtown stadium with the skyline background will be awesome. Plus you have great after-game entertainment right there by Target Center. Now they just need to get this land deal worked out, so they can start building. However, If they don't put a retractable roof on the stadium they are nuts. If they don't put one on right away, I can guarantee they'll have one on within the first 10 years at about 3x the original cost to the tax-payers.

      I have the Milwaukee m18 fuel hammer drill, 5ah batteries, never worried about keeping them warm last year and never had a problem.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
