    no prob! I enjoyed Mn and WI and Ia enough to want to go back! Only mishap was an encounter with officer friendly on the way back--well outside of the city and just off the dirt road-- from the Buddy Holley site who felt compelled to give me a ticket for 40 in a 35. I told him I was totally unfamiliar with the roads and saw no 35 mph sign. Told him the last sign I saw was 55. "Oh, that was way back there," he said. Made no difference. I guess the coffers in Clear Lake are running a little dry. If I pay up before 5/18 I save $2.50!! Woo hoo.

    So did you ever actually get to Dubuque? Or cross on the ferry?

    No, I crossed the river at LaCrosse. I was at the stage in the ride when I was a bit uncertain about my timing on getting home (and back to work), and I didn't know how long it would take me to cross Iowa and meander MO.
