An Iowa Afternoon on 4 wheels

Just so y'all don't feel too sorry for me being out here with my Mom while she recuperates, here's some shots of my afternoon spent enjoying my brother's farms...

Lots of toys at my disposal



Chose the Yamaha Grizzly 700, fuel injected, push button 4wd, power steering, independent suspension, traction control, it's a beast!



My brother's luxo-condo deer blind



I made the tour of several of my brother's ponds and lakes...this one is known as the Giberson pond



The Catfish pond



The Home Place pond



The Meck pond



Lake Christie, largest private lake in Jefferson County



Lake Michelle



Other end of Lake Michelle



I'm staying at my brother's hunting lodge, extremely comfortable place with lots of character







My bedroom, I'm the only one there so no argument about the bottom bunk



It's an unassuming machine shed from the outside, he had it completely finished on the inside but kept the low key exterior. Mom's country gardens are fading into autumn now



Here's one more to make you laugh, I don't have any outdoors clothes with me since this was an unplanned trip, rummaged through my brother's hunting clothes and found some camo to match the Grizzly



It was great to get out into fields and timbers and enjoy some sunshine and fresh air. Too much time spent in hospital rooms this week, this afternoon was much needed R&R. Loved that ATV, tons of power and I topped it out on a gravel road at 63mph!

I only did like 10 miles but it was all off road. Had no problem with being cold with the insulated camo, it's not deer season yet or I would have had to add some safety orange to my handsome outfit!

Yeah, cuz accidents never happen close to home! Gentle reminder my friend, you know your hands sometimes take the worse of it when you go down. Just ask Ragdoll and he was wearing serious racing gloves. Of course he WAS going like 150mph.

I was hanging on at 60+ mph on that Grizzly, realized it wouldn't be hard to roll it at that kind of speed on a gravel road with floatation tires. Next time out I'll bring my gear along, just getting this damn knee back into shape, don't need to mess it up again!

great pix, glad you had an awesome day.

my last time on an ATV was a couple of years ago on my cousin's dairy farm in wisconsin. I came back covered in what I thought was mud. then my cousin said, "Look, Jon, see the barn...see the pad where we have the cows while we muck the barn...now see the slope where you came down...that's not mud."

Naturally.

Oh I know bro........first crash I had on a motorcycle I wasn't wearing gloves and rash sucks on your hands. It was a poor decision to not wear them today, but to be honest it turned out alright so I won't lose sleep over it

I would take that Kubota and move dirt from one big pile to another. things like that usually clear my head but I also run a 1946 John Deer B up and down the road just for kicks so take that for what its worth. I really just wanted to give your brother a thumbs up for the deluxe deer stand. good stuff

Looks like I'll be here all week and the forecast is decent, so I'll get the Grizzly out again I'm sure. Going to go visit Duke's Yamaha/Kawasaki dealership this afternoon, see what he has in the showroom. Last time I talked to Duke he said he was ready to retire and would like to sell the dealership, that could be dangerous as bored as I am right now!

Yeah, that Kubota is a fine machine, I might hook up the bush hog and go mow some paths around the ponds, that's always fun. The deer stand is funny, all my brother's hunting buddies give him hell for having such a comfy stand when they're hanging off the sides of trees.

It is awesome, everyone freaks out when they step inside because from the outside it just looks like a typical Iowa machine shed. It was just an 3 sided open front machinery storage shed when he started, now it's a world class hunting lodge. Has beds for 12, additional heavy duty cots for 20 when needed. Two bathrooms, two bedrooms, a sleeping loft, completely outfitted kitchen, comfy leather furniture, walls covered with trophy bucks. Also has a "mud room" to store all the hunting gear, washer and dryer, beer fridge, and a fish cleaning sink. There's a separate pole barn for all the equipment, three ATV's, the Kubota, boats, canoes, tree stands, etc.

Dang, that looks like a fun day Scott. Love to ride the 4 wheelers across the badland of my dad's ranch whenever I'm home. Funny he has a hunting cabin set up inside his shop also thats very similar, but not nearly as nicely done inside. You'd never now there was 2 level 3 bedroom apartment inside when you were outside.

Great stuff Scott! Your brother has his own hunting lodge? wow! haha, that's something I've never heard before. How's the leg healing up? Looks like it's doing fairly well from the pics. I've been so busy moving/starting work/still recuperating that I haven't been on here in a while.

Hey Nathan, good to hear from you. Yeah, big brother is quite the outdoorsman, as are all his friends. People come in from all over the country to hunt at his place in Iowa, some of the best whitetail, pheasant and quail hunting you'll find, along with trophy bass in the ponds.

How's the new life down south?

Things are going pretty good, first full week of doing the job I was hired for. Done with all the orientation stuff, I know it's important, but it drives me crazy to sit and watch videos. Oh well... Other than that, just trying to get some furniture, I've been living out of my suitcase since I moved down on the 9th. But I've got a bed and a coffee maker so I guess I'm alright. ha

Here are some pics I took today, all of them are about 15mins from my apartment and less than 5 minutes from work. I will be doing some more exploring tomorrow, so maybe some more pics. Oh, and all of the country roads that I've been on are 10 times better than ANY country road I've ever driven. I like this state already!

**I just noticed how hugely wide my chicken strips are in pic #2, sigh....maybe some new tires will inspire confidence.**

Beautiful country, can't wait for spring time when we gather up the Indy WT faithful and crash your place for the weekend! How's your shoulder feeling these days?

Anybody's welcome to come as long as they don't mind sleeping on an air mattress, or a couch...once I get one. ha! Hopefully by Springtime I'll have a few trips mapped out, though I haven't had a chance to explore too much (rainy and in the 40's for the past week, today was great scenery with a little twist, and i can't get over how great the conditions of these country roads are!)

Noodling...hand fishing...not for the faint of heart. It's tough to do it in a pond, usually done in creeks, you reach over the side and feel around back in the holes and crevices for a big cat, then jam your hand down his throat and yank him out. My dad had tales of doing that when he was younger and I've seen other old guys with scars all over their forearms from the practice. I've never tried it myself, have been stung and poked by enough small catfish and bullhead spines, not all that interested in finding out what the teeth of a big daddy feel like scraping the skin off my wrists.

A lot of good times have been had out at my brother's lodge, not only has it served as a great hunting lodge, it's also a wonderful place for family gatherings. I couldn't wait to move away from Iowa when I was younger, still not quite ready to leave the city and move back but I sure do enjoy visiting.

Ahhh Morel mushrooms, gotta love 'em! Didn't know you had them out there. Up here we get tons of Indiana plated cars searching the woods for them!

It hit 60 in southeastern Iowa this afternoon, Mom is settled at home and doing well so I got some more time to go play in the dirt. Drove my truck out this trip, knee has finally healed enough to operate the clutch, had great fun bashing around some muddy dirt roads today!

Gotta love signs like this!





Followed by roads like this...





Always loved this road when I was a kid, has a low water crossing where you drive right through the creek









Cool whirlpool



After I got done muddying up the truck I got the four wheeler out and went for a ride. Was much better prepared this trip as far as gear, got to try out my new Shoei DS Hornet for the first time. Yeah, I'm bored, why else would I be taking pics of myself in the bathroom mirror?



I think Iowa's beautiful as the seasons are changing and autumn starts to fade into winter











Try lodging a camera into a tree, setting the timer and making it back on the ATV before it goes off. Got this one on the third try, not too bad



Got the Toyota a lot muddier than the Yamaha, great time with both of them though!
