Where do you end in IA? I have a route mapped out from the Highway 61 bridge south of Keokuk to the beginning of the Trans Mn. Trail. If it ever stops raining and the temp gets above 40, I'll try to get out to prove it out.
If you end somewhere else, I might as well try to find a way to link up to that so then we would have a continuous route from Canada to LA. Then our friends in LA or TX could take us all the way to the gulf coast or even Mexico.
