Took awhile, but here are some pics from our Iowa trip.
Weather was tough this year, really windy the whole trip and several rainy days. Still had a great time, rode a few times, found enough morels to stuff ourselves and got in some fishing.
I went riding the first afternoon while Gin went mushroom hunting, enjoyed a slow ride through the grassy fields.
My favorite dirt road, was dry that first day but then it rained for a couple of days straight and turned into slimy mud.
Not real impressive, I didn't bury it up to the engine in a stream as promised.
Gin went out with me on Saturday, stopped by the old country church where my parents rest and paid our respects, it's the most serene place I know.
The log cabin in the background is the birthplace of a distant ancestor, Colonel William Coop, the first settler born in Jefferson County, Iowa.
Went shooting on Sunday afternoon, blasted up a bunch of clay pigeons and targets.
Fishing was tough with 30-40mph winds, but caught a bunch anyway.
Riding around with my brother surveying his properties.
Here's what it's all about...
