We’re currently on a road trip that will span almost a month. When this goes live, I’ll be on a bike, riding the farm roads of Iowa. However, the trip started in Colorado...
First, we made a stop at Camp FI Rocky Mountain:
Then we went to Minnesota. I’m a Midwesterner at heart and always love my trips back to the region.
After Minneapolis, we drove down the Great River Road which is incredibly beautiful:
Hey kids, what do want for lunch?
Madison, perhaps my favorite city in the world, was our next stop:
Next, the girls went to stay with their aunt while Mrs. 1500 and I went to see Miss Mazuma and her caboose. It was crazy hot, so I decided to jump in the pool, even though I was unprepared for a swim.
Then, on to Chicago!
And now, we’re on a bike ride across Iowa called RAGBRAI. When I first heard of this ride almost 2 decades ago, my response was something like this:
Wait. You want to ride a bicycle through corn and hog farms at the end of July? People pay to do this? Ummmmm, NO!
It turns out that the ride is a lot of fun. This will be RAGBRAI #7 for us!
And this year, a group of FIRE folks is going including the Waffles, Big Ox Little Bird, Craig Curelop, and Katie of PopUp Business School. If you find yourself in Iowa this week, stop by and say “Hi!”
