I use my Roxor all over. I have the small South Dakota plate and have been all over when the weather is nice. I have had cops behind me when I was teaching my son to drive stick and had no issues. I suspect in Mankato area you would be fine as well.
Unfortunately, not a lot of Jeep trails around here, but aim to take it up north on the Border to Border trail, as well as take it to WI for the T.W.A.T. (Trans-Wisconsin Adventure Trail). And I will use the heck out of it this winter as a plow for my driveway and for ice fishing.
