Are you talking MSP or one of the smaller airports? From MSP, easy drive north and lots of choices for a room near the airport.

11 hours for me one way. If they would ever get done with the Cut River bridge it would knock of a good 1/2 hour to 45 min. 3 years now working on that bridge.

Yeah taking the ferry is not in the cards for me. With two guys and one vehicle you're looking at approximately two hundred bucks each way! F that!!!! Add to the fact it's not any faster in fact it's at least an hour slower.

Keep in mind this is still in the spit ball stage, I just started talking about this with my buddy yesterday. But yeah we would fly into MSP airport, stay at a room semi close to the airport that's convenient and cost-effective, most likely rent a car from one of the places at the airport and have at it.

Considering I don't have any huge wish list of stuff to buy, and I'm not taking anything to sell. Flying there just makes so much more sense.

Probably not a bad plan to stay farther away. Anywhere close is probably already booked. My shop is 10 minutes from the site, so I go every year. I look forward to it. As said, good shoes are a must. It's basically a giant flea market with snowmobiles. It's not that far from the air port really, maybe an hour.

I honestly wouldn’t waste the time and money to go to it unless it is something you really want to see. You can see the whole thing in about 4 hours. I usually get there just before cat brings out their race sled, check out what is new at the vendors, watch some racing and gone by about 3pm. I also found going late morning you avoid all the traffic and parking lot nonsense. Getting there around noon you can pull right in and get good parking spot. I never go into the giant flea market they are calling a swap meet. As far as buying things the pricing is the same as most places have on line. I haven’t gone in a few years so I might go this year.

maybe you do not appreciate a great place to find used parts, but a lot of people do. Hit some so called swaps in other states and you will appreciate what this swap is. To go to the Haydays once, should be on every Hardcore Sledders bucket list.

One year I was parked in the pits next to a guy who drove from Bethel, Maine to race Ski-Doos in stock class

On the old location. I liked when the old (inside)swap spaces would fill up and the parking lots turned into swap spaces too. Parts were sold cheap out in the parking lots. Barons finally put a kibosh on that

The op is not interested in finding used parts. Imo Princeton is the better of the 2
