Ben, look into flying to Omaha, shipping your bike and taking a shuttle from the airport to Onawa. Cheaper and faster than driving, paying for hotel overnights, long term parking, etc.

I’m planning on driving (from Reston), I’ve got family in Chicago so may stop there for a night on the way out/back. Let’s keep in touch and see how ride options are shaping up as the summer gets underway!

One option is to rent a car 1 way to Davenport. Enterprise has a location right in Davenport. You can drop your gear off at your camping location and ride your bike back to it from the rental car location. Be aware that all the small town rental car locations close at NOON though for planning purposes. And for picking up the rental for the return trip you need to hit the road very early to get there before noon on the last day. Unless your OK returning from Iowa City which has some airport locations that stay open later. Also Enterprise has had some mileage limitation in the past and has a premium price for 1 way rentals. The other DMV locations are a bit further away.
