I am thinking that we will stay at Scenic View Campground in Waterville Iowa. The rates look reasonable and Craig said that one of the earlier GRGRs stayed there and were well treated.

Here is a link if anyone wants to check it out.

I'm thinking the lavish Fly trailer will suffice.

Sounds good to me. Does it include a boat ride?

Looked up the Rossville Store on google. The reviews on yahoo sound great and it sounds like it is an old school supper club. My favorite!

As long as the KLR gets a ride. That boat anchor would drag me right down.

OK. Craig has sent me a gpx file of the route and it looks great! It includes the always fun Good 'Nuff Hollow Rd., the Yellow River State Forest, the Cassville Car Ferry ride across the Misissippi and a bunch of new stuff to shake things up.

He has a few modifications to make and he is going to make it available as a track as well as a route. When all of this is done it will be posted here.

For those that don't know the area (if there are any ) lets steal a description from WIKI:

The Driftless Area or Paleozoic Plateau is a region in the American Midwest noted mainly for its deeply carved river valleys. While primarily in southwestern Wisconsin, it includes areas of southeastern Minnesota, northeastern Iowa and extreme northwestern Illinois . This region includes elevations ranging from 603 to 1,719 feet (184 to 524 m) and covers an area of 16,203 square miles (42,000 km2). This region's peculiar terrain is due to its having escaped glaciation in the last glacial period.[1][2]
The term "driftless" indicates a lack of glacial drift, the material left behind by retreating continental glaciers.


Just to make sure you caught it, that is over 1100 feet of elevation range. Not much to our friends outside the mid-west, but quite a bit for our area and enough to make the gravel roads we will be on twisty and almost continuously either up or downhill. Add in the beautiful views looking from the ridge tops down into the valleys, or from the valleys looking up to the bluffs and rugged rock formations and a few stream crossing and you have the makings for a good ride.


For the guys that don't know Craig6785 he is a good natured guy who somehow managed to make his 640 Adventure look like a small bike. He also managed to set a pretty rapid pace on it. Now he has bought a bike more inline with his stature (990 Adventure) that he claims has made him slower. I didn't see much evidence of it on our last ride...

For those that don't know me...all I can say is if you aren't careful that could change.

I see the Madison BMW Club Rally is being held in Soldiers Grove the same weekend so we may run into some of the more adventurous attendees of that rally while we are on the road. I have heard that they aren't normally dangerous, but that they can be easily provoked. Anyone who has met Rapid Roy can attest to that.
