  • Who is planning on attending the party? Let me think, beer, party and talking about RAGBRAI. That’s a no brainer!!! I’d love to drive to Iowa (700+ miles in January) but Lefty (Knee) has other plans!!! I guess I’ll have to have my own RAP, at home, in front of the fireplace. I think I’ll invite Lucy Lou, the Mayor of Rabbit Hash! She can bring the Kurb and the beer!!!!

  • Mich- I’d love to drive to Iowa (700+ miles in January) but Lefty (Knee) has other plans!!!

    I loved having to drive a stick after I had my left ACL replaced. Pull the brace to get the foot on the clutch, push it down (good therapy), then side-step.

  • Did you get the knee replaced yet? I knew you would not go to the RAP – would require you go west.

  • What’s your gas-passing doctor going to knock you out with for your surgery, Mich?

  • Are you going to the party or watching on line? I want to drive to Des Moines but Lefty said no and Beverly agreed!!! Therefore, I’m having my own Route Announcement Party!!!! That way, I don’t have to drive 700 miles to Des Moines. I’ve invited about 20 close friends who may or may not go to Iowa with me in July. I predict Sioux City to Dubuque, with a few stops in between!BTW, RAGBRAI don’t care bout no party!!!!

  • Heading to Des Moines early Saturday morning with a first-timer (my 29 year old daughter). Figured the first time should be as “all-inclusive” as possible. Hope to see Brent and Marcia from the Hammond House in Slater as well as good ol’ Banana Man. He never remembers me until I remind him we met at Granite City in St. Cloud, MN around 2:00 A.M. My buddy and I were doing a night ride to Paynesvill and stop in for a last minute libation. We started talking RAGBRAI and BM walked over and introduced himself. We hoisted a few together and then had to be on our way. I know it will probably never happen, but I vote for a diagonal 500+ mile route. Let’s separate the wheat from the chaff! LOL See you on the road! (You stole my line CR – no problemo)

  • Greetings from the Emerald City, where the Polar Vortex has us firmly in its grip (again!) and the sky is currently dumping more snow on us. Mrs. Woo and I will be watching the RAP festivities online, safely ensconced by the fireplace and enjoying a bottle of Wide River Winery’s Ms. Behavin’ and a bowl of Iowa Machine Shed’s popcorn. There’s nothing like a few reminders of the warmth of last July to help us through this interminably long, miserable winter and give us something to look forward to this summer!

    Cheers!

  • The Captain, I and the Little Stoker will take in the festivities on line in this electronic age. The Captain has smuggled in some New Belgium 1554 to go with our pizza tonight for which we are grateful.

    RIDE RIGHT
