Iowa & Minnesota Routes Set

February 8, 2019 - Currently the plan is to knock out another 200 counties beginning in mid-May with the 99 counties of Iowa and 87 counties of Minnesota. The five week run will include eastern border counties of Missouri and western border counties of Wisconsin and Illinois. The combined mileage will be about 8,000 miles. 

If you have a place for me to camp, check out the routes on the Iowa and Minnesota introduction pages and send me a message. 

I am also booking civic club speaking engagements for this tour leg and the rest of the 2019 season. Use the contact menu tab to reach me.

TV personalities, politicians, military heroes, police officers and deputies, and little old ladies looking for a date - they all contribute to the flavor of Ride Around America.
