Weekend in Decorah

I worked at the Trans Iowa checkpoint #2 Saturday. Because of the severe winds, we only had 5 riders make the checkpoint and the race had to be cut short by about 100 miles. Congratulations to the 5 finishers and to everybody who competed. I was able to get out Saturday and Sunday morning to ride the Decorah trails. The trails are awesome!

cool to see you again this year, Joe, though would have been cool to fight that wind together some... hopefully again next year.

also wish I could have made it to that checkpoint, but obviously that didn't work out... counting on you to help the Iowa contention to encourage Mark to do this again...

Mojoe, Nice to finally meet you and the Monkey in person. Enjoyed talking with you and eating grilled meat products and beverages at Checkpoint 2. Hopefully we run into each other somewhere else on the trails or roads this summer.

Hey Dan... I had a cooler full of Fat Tire too. Thanks to guys for donating some Yazoo beer and making the long drive up for the race. I got to sample some Dos Parros and Hefeweizen. Great to hang out with you at the meeting. My other TI buds (Brian and Paul) were there too.

Keep on Rockin!!!
