KenH: So, a picture of a riverboat accompanies the announcement of registration opening next week. Can anyone read the name from the inconveniently low resolution picture or recognize the boat? Might be a clue

The riverboat is The Pearl Button. The self-proclaimed pearl button capital of the world is Muscatine. The fact that Mark Twain, famous riverboat pilot, spent summers in Muscatine, lends credence to the guess that RAGBRAI 45 will finish in Muscatine. If we didn’t finish there in RAGBRAI 44, I’d say this was an excellant clue.

Will we finish in the same city two consecutive years? Who, besides TJ, knows? At this point, I think it’s a toss-up between Muscatine and Keokuk, with the edge going to Keokuk. In addition to the rationale I gave in another thread, it’s been about 25 years (RAGBRAI 20 in 1992) since Keokuk was an end town. Ahhhh, don’t you just love the speculation?

BTW, KenH, congratulations to your Cubbies from this frustrated Cleveland Indians fan.

See you along the I-O-Way in July.
