D.D.  You rode right past my house and didn't stop in.
Have a great trip and watch out for "deer", Moose.

Thanks,  guys.

 Iowa was the first of two consecutive 700 mile days.  We were feeling so good the thought of an Iron Butt was discussed.  At that point we weren't stopping for much.

D.D.  You rode right past my house and didn't stop in.

Now that I'm home I checked to see if you were right.  I may have missed your house.  Didn't realize I was not paying attention at Mt Pleasant.  Figured it out somewhere north of Crawfordsville.  Decided to take the scenic route back to Rt 34.

You two were in my backyard!
You had to ride right through Batavia.

Ride Report?

I now appreciate how far you are riding to get to Romney.  It took us about 12 hours from Pittsburgh to Burlington, IA.  You live a ways out there.

Ride report is coming.  With over 600 pictures and a ton of video to go through it will be a while, but there will eventually be one.  May take a couple of weeks.

Until then, here's another Iowa picture I'm sure you'll recognize.  This interesting road ended with our first (and only) Helite Vest  deployment...fortunately captured on the GoPro.

Some angles of Snake Alley look better than others.
