Fellow 612er here, looking for a bit of land right now, where is the best place in the state in terms of ordinances, seems like you can't even dig a privy let alone build a hunting cabin anywhere in the state anymore without sign off from 10 different bureaucrats.

There is a green home fair in st. paul, but it is mostly about getting people to use flourescents and bamboo flooring, no real backwoods movement that is organized that I have found

Default Anyone from Koochiching County here?

MANY years ago I read about an offer of homesteading land available in the county. Does anyone know the status of that now? Anyone live there on here? I would like to know more about the area from someone living there.

I wonder if the title of this thread should be changed to:

" MN Roll Call, Land of 10,000 [closed] Lakes?"

No love from MN lately? Thought I would pop in here and say hello. We live in the W TC area, near the Croix. Just purchased land up in Itasca County.

Awaiting spring, but not in any particular rush for it. Just ordered seeds and will be busy in the basement starting seedlings up soon.

Always wanted to fish the Red, but just have never made it up there for a trip.

We have snow on the ground in the MSP area, and really not much more in North Central. Think I'm heading Up Nord this weekend for some winter camping.
