Hey Jamie! Not WI but just east of St. Paul (Maplewood) for me. Close enough for a handshake I would imagine ;) We pass through your home town from time to time on our way up to Turtle Lake WI where our family has a lake place.
I look forward to seeing your build(s) and nice to know there are friends close to bounce ideas off of. Not much of a player myself yet but I'm have a lot of fun learning, building and and meeting like minded individuals like yourself.
