Hey Jack!

Tallahassee Bob here – I’m jonesin too – for only the third time since ’91, I won’t be spending the last full week of July taking down a dew-covered tent in the dark! Today is the day when I “would” pack up my truck and head to Nashville before crossing the Mississippi into Iowa tomorrow. Looks like this year may rival ’99, which I call the “heat year.”

In a curious twist of fate, I’ll actully be vacationing in Iowa the week after RAGBRAI – to see Brian Wilson at the Surf ballroom, followed by three days at
Pike’s Peak State Park (near McGregor) cycling along the river. 

Hope you made it up Potter Hill better than me – for the first time in 17 RAGBRAIs I had to walk part of the way…. And yeah, I’ll be there for the big four oh. 

Bob
