Final push

Need to maintain some momentum over the few weeks which will mean a continuous dose of saddle time. The WaltWorks is ready and will be running a 32x14 with some 35c Conti Speed King Cross (if they arrive in time).

TIv3 Information: There is a chance to pass through the Little Switzerland of Iowa on the way to an undisclosed check point. Will we head to the bohemian alps? Over towards M'town?

Hey! I would say our odds of going through Elgin, or at least close are extremely good. I am a map geek and have been playing with different options on the course. I am pretty confident that we will not go more than a couple miles west of Waukon (which is our first town) and then start heading for the Waterloo area. The check point is in Evansdale just southeast of Waterloo.

I would guess, and obviously it is a total guess, that we won't make it as far west as Marshalltown. I predict we will go to Grundy Center and then will head north up to Charles City or Osage before heading east to Decorah again.

I look forward to meeting you in a couple of weeks.
