In two days, I leave for Iowa to do something that has been on my "to do" list for a few years: RAGBRAI. RAGBRAI is an acronym (Register's Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa) and has been described to me as "the best of Americana", "a rolling party" and "the best way to spend a week in the summer."
We'll see if the ride lives up to the hype, but I'm really looking forward to spending the week with with the 'Chicks'.
Actually, I'm gonna shut up. Check out this post, by one of the 'Chicks', that does a much better job of describing what we're getting ourselves into next week (and see an image of the sweet shirts we had made up).
