After an action packed weekend on Take Five, it was great to get back home and enjoy the solitude of the country. This week I begin preparations for our trip to northwest Iowa and the RAGBRAI. Luke and Noah as well as some friends from college will be joining me. We plan to pull the Airstream out of the drive on Thursday morning and will take our time traveling to Orange City, IA. The first leg of the ride begins on Sunday, July 23. A 62.6 mile ride to Spencer, IA. where we will be hosted by some long time college friends in front of their home.
