Article Posting Guidelines are spelled out here. Thanks
Announcement: After 15 years of life, these boards have dwindled to a place for a mere handful of folks to post links and have the rare discussion. Having born the financial burden for both the hosting and the software for that same 15 year period, and just not having the time anymore for this effort, I have decided to shutdown these boards at the end of the USL & NASL season later this Fall. It has truly been a blast to have been part of growing a nation-wide fanbase thru internet interaction, that in 1999 was slim or non-existent for the Lower Divisions of Soccer. That has all changed and for the better. Fan support around the country is nothing like what it was when I started this, so from that perspective, I feel I accomplished my small part in contributing to growing that connection into what it is today. Thanks for everyone's support over the years, and especially for all the friendships across the country that Vicki and I have so enjoyed (and still do) over the years. Thanks !! Dan Barnes

I have made the drive from Minneapolis to Edmonton.

It is boring. Saskatchewan is flat as all get out.

22hours total and the most exciting part is Fargo.

Yeah, when I said, "won't be quite as scenic" that was my grossly understated way of saying "boring as hell, but I'm considering the drive anyway." I flew to Ft Lauderdale for a little more than 24 hours, so as long as I can watch the game, scenery is sort of irrelevant.

I'd still rather drive to Canada than the equal time drive down to San Antonio.

20 hours is a bitch either way.

20 hours is tough. I can do a 16-hour drive in one day, but 20 is past my driving limit. I can drive all day, but hate driving in the dark.

20 is doable for me.

I'd happily take 3 others with me.

20 hours there and 20 hours back = too much time sitting in a car!

That's my thought as well. My roadtrip limit in a day is more like ten hours. Plus I won't have much time off to devote to this.

So... do we think we have enough interested in that Edmonton trip to start doing some planning?
