This post closes the door on our RAGBRAI 2014 adventure.
We hope to do it again next year. In the meantime, thank you to those who lent a hand or encouragement along the road.
To Tammy and Pete at our campsite. To Kyle Munson, Michael Morain, Mary Willie and all our friends at the Des Moines Register, who help to put on this magnificent event. To Team Groucho for literally giving us shelter from the storm on Thursday night. To those old friends from last year with whom we reconnected: Larry, Sol, Dirks, Conway and Waylon (not necessarily their real names), Team Lobster, and the too many to count who told us how much they love NPR.
It’s been quite a week. We’re back in Des Moines and fly home to DC Sunday. Return trips to Iowa will come soon. The 2016 presidential campaign is right around the corner.
TEAM GROUCHO IS MY PARENTS. My family is an NPR article.
