Alright the truck is loaded, snacks are prepared, and the iPod is playing! I'm Eastbound and down, destination: Iowa for the 2008 Register's Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa (RAGBRAI)! I'll be posting pictures and stories from the ride here, hopefully everyday or darn near. Right now I'm posting from the cellular unit barreling down I-80 but I believe there's WiFi access on the route and we're travelling Big Winnie Style for the majority of the trip, so I'm bringing the laptop. The plan is to make it to Des Moines tonight and stay with my friend Jenny's brother, the rally with the rest of our crew on the Eastern side of Iowa tommorrow morning. We'll drop vehicles there and ride in Winneb ago comfort back to the Missouri River side to start riding on Sunday. 500 miles, 7 hangovers and one Styx concert later iwe should arrive at Old Man River, tired and happy. I'll let y'all know how it turns out!
