Thinking ahead to 2019 …

I’m torn on the 2019 route … I think it’ll be either just south of I-80 (Council Bluffs start) or perhaps a Highway 20 route. Thoughts?

How about Larchwood to Keokuk? That is about as diagonal as you can get NW to SE.

Although Larchwood would be super convenient for me, I can assure you it will not start there. It’s not nearly big enough! There is no hospital, not enough open space for campers or enough of anything for that matter.

With the 2019 logo and theme of following the wind, my guess is the route will follow areas with significant wind generation which, perhaps, eliminates a southern route, leaving just about anything from the I80 corridor north. My guess is somewhere between north (like 2017) and somewhat central (like 2018). My guess is to start in LeMars/Sioux City/Sergeant Bluff or Council Bluffs/Missouri Valley areas and final in Dubuque/Clinton. Following the trend of recent years, I doubt the route (without loops) has a distance of more than ~425 mi’s +/-.
