    Mmmmm... sounds interesting. How do you get there? Still fly into Min/StP?? It's like $700 to fly into Fargo... Min/StP is only $230.

    Hey charlie vacation in somewhere chilly and scenic West Yellowstone.

    Nothing to see in ND except the end of the world and north dakotans with greatly amusing Scandnivain accents and make good fodder for jokes here.

    Hasn't got real cold here where I'm at but hey we were around 0°F for lows in sept. so it should be a cold winter.

    Actually I love Montana... but just thought ND might be a bit more accessible and a bit colder.

    I think Yellowstone has a better chance of below -30 in January, rent a P/U and small gen to throw in back and you can bench 12-5AM when it's the coldest. Take an H2O pump, rad & fan, find a small blue hole and you have heat all night

    Charlie, fly to MSP and either rent a car or take the train. It is about 4 hours from MSP and about 1 hour from Canada. The grocery stores wont have dry ice, but there are a bunch of bait stores that will carry it becuase of ice fisherman. You are guarnteed at least -10 degrees in January though.

    Now as a practical matter... how does this California boy stay warm benching in -25C temps at 3 in the morning?? Lol... Hopefully I can find a hotel with a balcony so I can put rig outside and bench inside with the cables running thru the door. But that's not really XTREME, maybe I need to set up on a snow drift or smthg.

    Do what I do wear shorts, best part about it is you wont be mistaken for a tourist but you might be mistaken for a nut case.

    Anyway probably the same way you bundle up for skiing however you do that in cali. If you keep your hands, head, and feet warm though all you need is some windproof meduim weight stuff for the rest of your body, which I believe you can buy in california although you guys seem to like them wear them when its 50°F outside.

    Failing that theres always heated snowmobile suits.

    Cat5 kvm extender is the way to go.. no need to accompany your gear out there.. the only thing humans do faster in the subzero cold is shiver, get sick, or die.. or all 3
