Pete Hanson

I'm just a regular Minnesota guy that grew up on the north-side of the Cities (Fridley), spent some quality time at the U of M, chill on the weekends at the family cabin near Duluth, bleed Vikings purple, and miss the North Stars. I have a short attention span; and enjoy Pink Floyd, Johnny Cash, Zac Brown, 80s hair bands, coffee, beer, scotch, and long sunset walks on the beach. (One of those isn't true.) I'm a two-time cancer survivor now (Colorectal 2002, Kidney 2014), and know that life is damn short -- so by all means we should be playing as hard and as often as we can. I think that's it. (Did I mention that I have a short attention span?) Hit me up below on Facebook & Twitter.

I’ll Be Reeling In Tomorrow’s Minnesota Fishing Opener

Ladies & gentlemen, start you boat motors as the 2016 Minnesota Fishing Opener hits at midnight tonight. Walleye, Northern, Bass, Crappie, Trout, Perch. Bring 'em all on. I will be up north at the cabin for the big day tomorrow. Part fishing, part tradition, part looking' forward to summer (and probably part making a fire).

2016’s Reported UFO Sightings in Central Minnesota

When I hear someone ask the question, "Do you believe in UFOs?" -- I ask myself, what's not to believe? By definition a U.F.O. is an Unidentified Flying Object. Are you asking me if I believe in extraterrestrial life? That's a completely different question. Here are reported UFO sightings from Central Minnesota in 2016.
