Mike, I hope we can get a bunch of us from up North and crash this event. I'm on the IN list and I think C-Zulu is tossing it around too.

Since we'd be close to my old stomping ground (Dubuque, IA), I'd love to take an extra day and ride the Great River Road down towards Dubuque. We could swing by Breitbach's! Then we could ride around Balltown and some of the backroads up to Sundown Ski Mountain.

By the way, I'm going through some old Great River Gravel Ride pictures from 2006 and I came across this. Anyone know who was responsible for this?

Wandering sounds good to me, as does Anamosa. I've never been to that moto museum and want to see it.
http://www.nationalmcmuseum.org/

Or here, Field of Dreams, fun to see, although I have been there while LD rallying - http://www.fodmoviesite.com/

Does Brietbach's serve pie?

Those sites are all worth a visit Mike. And yes, Breitbach's had pie, but they are known for their fried chicken!!

You know what Taco, that brings up a question, which I don't think has been asked.

Is there going to be women on this ride???? That ought to get a bunch of hate threads going.
I don't care one way our another, I just need to know. I will modify my behave-yer accordingly.
