Alaska may one day be connected to the rest of the states. Quebec has tried unsuccessfully a couple times to become independant from Canada. If it had been successful, some of the western provinces were talking about becoming part of the United States.

I hope that's enough info.

LOL, while the Quebec situation is well-known, I was hoping you could provide some info on how any of these postings relate to any merging of BC or any other territory/province with the US.

this statement from Wikipedia is hardly credible but certainly worth a good laugh however...A hypothetical merging of the United States, Canada, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Jamaica, and Puerto Rico as 65 states (and three territories).

now Doctor, tell me the truth, you didn't actuall read much of any of these did you?

I couldn't find anything about some provinces becoming states. I didn't really read all of those links all the way through.

Specifically, I'm interested in knowing how the twin cities compare to Milwaukee and Detroit and what difference there is between the three states in terms of Rural areas. My impression on that count is they're very similar in terms of the recreational opportunities such as hunting, fishing and camping.
Good question!

* Minnesota is, on average, colder than the two. It is also drier and less rainy.

* Western Minnesota is the beginning of where the Midwest transitions into the Great Plains.

* Except for the Iron Range, Duluth, and North Shore, Northeastern Minnesota is largely an "empty quarter" with little civilization, population, or roads. Much of it is under state or federal management. Boundary Waters Canoe Area is located in part of this region, and while popular with tourists, has virtually no long-term residents outside of Ely and perhaps a few other very small towns. I understand that some parts of the U.P. are like that, but probably not as much so as NE MN.

* Minnesota has no cities of 100,000 out of Minneapolis and St. Paul (right next to each other), and no cities of more than 50,000 out of the Metro area other than St. Cloud (about 60 mi NW of Minneapolis), Rochester (about 75 mi SE of Minneapolis), and Duluth (about 130 mi N of Minneapolis). There are absolutely no large or even medium-sized cities in the northern half of the state other than Duluth, although there are suburbs of Fargo and Grand Forks on the MN - ND border. As a result, there is an "outstate / metro" division.

Michigan has Detroit, Grand Rapids, Flint, Ann Arbor, Lansing, Kalamazoo, and Saginaw for free-standing large or medium-sized cities. Wisconsin has Eau Claire, Madison, Kenosha, Racine, Milwaukee, Green Bay, Appleton, La Crosse, Janesville, Sheboygan, and the Central Wisconsin cities.

Yes. I swim on the Superior side of Park Point between July and September. It's pretty refreshing.

I always swimmed in Lake Superior when I lived in Duluth. Park Point was a great get-away.
