Thanks to Rich Drake (@richdrake) for hosting Team Transplant at his house in Indianola. Sorry to have exposed you to "Doug in Spandex" Rich but those scars will heal :)
We had a wonderful bbq and got to know Rich's family and had a darn good time. People often ask me how riding 250 miles on a bike is relaxing. Seeing our great state, eating your way across it, and finishing up the day with a campsite (while using showers and bathrooms in homes of friends) keeps bringing me back year after year.
I've done RAGBRAI every year I've lived here and I'm going to keep doing it. Thanks to all including wives, hosts, and teammates.
