    So you are afraid to cross the river??

    Wait a minute! You live in Iowa so what’s your excuse for not riding Iowa events?

    They are halfway across the world, over by Des Moines. And I would come to IL, but you guys keep playing musical chairs with the dates and/or canceling. Lucky I've got my own place I can't ride on.

    Am I the only one who gets nervous this time of year because of deer?
    Out tonight between 4-530 and must have seen 7-8 deer out on the gravel roads.
    Eventually I just put it in cruise mode 30 mph or slower

    No. The deer population is getting crazy. I can see 7 or 8 deer everyday on my street in the middle of Des Moines.

    Brad and I saw a surprisingly few number of deer doing the TWAT...but they were there. Only a couple of remotely close calls.

    Here though, I have had maybe 6 or 7 close encounters since the beginning of October.

    I have about 50 deer that live in my yard and I'm in the middle of Dubuque and I'm not exaggerating. Now I do have a big yard. We used to let a few hunters in during the city bow season, but that was a joke, because they would only shoot about 2 or 3 a season. They were just hunting for the trophy bucks.

    I'm paranoid about them. My dad has hit three, once with me on the back when i was 11. Two of them had to be put down by law enforcement. I live about 400 yards from the iowa river and they are everywhere! I live on city bow hunting land now.....thinking about picking up a new hobby :)

    Heading to Ottumwa for the weekend. Thinking about bringing my bike to ride Bluff Creek (Bussey) for a few hours on Saturday. Anyone in the area have a current report on park conditions?
