    I’m planning on going back to my home state of Iowa for RAGBRAI (a really long bike ride across the whole state) so I will be in the Midwest. Growing up there I took all these trips during one summer or another. Basegames in Kansas City and St. Louis are great too!

    Very good website you have here but I was wondering if you knew of any discussion boards that cover the same topics discussed here? I’d really love to be a part of online community where I can get advice from other experienced individuals that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Many thanks!
