Commitment time: Antioch’s Lazarz motors toward Moorhead Feb 6, 2014 12:00 AM
The almost 10-hour car ride to far northwest Minnesota didn’t scare off Tyler Lazarz. “I’m used to driving long distances to go up north,” Lazarz said. “We go to a cabin up in Wisconsin a lot and it’s about five hours away, so I’m fine with the driving.” Even though Lazarz won’t be vacationing at the end of his long drives to Minnesota, he’s in for just as much fun.
