If 14,000 lakes is the land of 10,000 lakes, welcome and condolences. If you need a tour of Surly Brewing while you're in town, let me know.
It is the land of 10,000 lakes. My reference dates back to the first trip we took I mentioned. At the time I mistakenly called it the land of a thousand lakes, an error I recently heard repeated by the announcer at a Vikings game. Someone here corrected me, and, amazed that there could be 10,000 lakes in one state, I read about it, learning that this is understated, and that Minnesota actually has more than 14,000 lakes. In fact, the article I saw when I just Googled this for verification says there are more than 15,000 lakes here, so they must have had a recount.
And thank you for the offer, but our plate (growler?) here is just too full.
