Minnesota is the Land of 10,000 Lakes so there is plenty of humidity for a few months each year. Actually, humidity in the winter can be more brutal than during the summer.

Speaking of Minnesota...STUCK in Minnesota? Pfft...this is God's Country ok...the Twin Cities Metro isn't so much

Re: Crazy? Superinsulated 'sleeping box' separate in bus

an extra inch of poly insulation under your matress will do wonders to keep the cold from creeping thru you from the bottom, add a stack of good blankets and a knit hat to keep your ears warm, and you should be able to stay warm enuf to sleep at 0 F.
we used to winter tent camp with the boy scouts, we would break open straw bales and fluff them up under the ground cloth, pitch the tent, and oll out the sleeping bags, add an extre blanket inside the bag and sleep good all nite, only down side was who gets up first to get the fire going.

Lake is all in how you define it. I *think* Minnesota has more lakes over 10 acres in size, but I'm not positive. You guys get all those nice winds off the lakes too. We're stuck with the clippers coming down from Manitoba.
