An earlier poster asked – the delicious punch was called Sama Punch. It was from Palm’s Caribean Cuisine in Des Moines. I rank it up there with pickle juice in importance. Had one every day. So tasty. Other favorites – The Wesley Fire Department had an amazing thick cut pork chop. All the towns were amazing but I really liked Postville – the Samosas (basically a beef pie) were so, so good. The Band in Anthon as you left town was lovely. So many good pies in so many towns. Loved how many people came out to great us in Mason City – felt like being in a parade. You really felt the love and excitement. Definite energy boost.
My only real dislikes were the lack of food options in the 1st few towns on Century Day. The lines were insanely long and it wasn’t until Wesley that we were able to get food.
Truly an amazing week. I expect all future RAGBRAIs to have weather just as good.
