RAGBRAI XLIX registration is now open!

Bagging vs non-bagging

Hi,
This’ll be my first RAGBRAI and I’m planning on bagging it.  My concern is that I’m on a small team with two others who’d like to put their gear on a truck.  Will I be able to camp in the same area as my buddies if I carry my own gear?

In all likelyhood…Yes….and have a great ride across Iowa!!!

You will have no problem with that at all.  I’ve bagged all but one of the RAGBRAIs I’ve done.  I love the freedom of it and camping where ever you want is one of those freedoms.  You learn pretty quickly not to tent near the motor homes with their generators running all night. You learn which teams are up all night and which are up uber early.  It’s a great way to RAGBRAI!!

40th may be North next year, but hate to break the news so early, you must do the ride “Baggin” style next year to be drawn in the lottery.

Any other baggers looking for other baggers to ride with?

Sure, I’d be there. Looking for 1-2 to do a trip this year. 1-2 week Minnesota loop or 2 weeks New Orleans to Nashville, the problem with that is getting there then getting home
