The year is 1998. Young Mitchell man was playing a rousing round of "Where In The World is Carmen San Diego?" and finished his lesson early. So he got a little curious and started googling his name. That's when he found it - Mitchell, South Dakota. Right then and there, he swore to visit. Somehow, someway, some day.

Why?   Idk. I'm so sorry.
How much will this cost?   I'm trying to minimize costs to the best of my ability. I will provide lodging, food/drinks, and day trip transportation.
Where should I fly into?   The closest airport is Sioux Falls, SD (FSD). They seem to be hovering around $350 from AUS for that weekend

What are we going to do?   This will depend on how many deep we're rolling, but local attractions include local breweries, Native-owned casinos, The Mitchell Corn Palace, and big ol' fields like you wouldn't believe.
