because I’m bored and don’t want to wash dishes, I started thinking about the ride south to Des Moines from Ames. got my Iowa DOT map out out to try to figure the route from Ames to Des Moines. I’m assuming that we might camp might at one of two places DsM Water Works the large field where we did in 2013 or maybe at the Iowa State Fair Grounds. If the route out of Ames is to the west I’m guessing we are on our way to DsM Water Works. If the route is to the east maybe we are on way to the Fair Grounds. There is maybe a third possible route, South on highway 69. But that’s not going to happen. No more thinking, my head hurts.
