ABOVE: Our late February visit to Anamosa, before social distancing was a thing. After the meeting, we got a quick snap with our friends there. That's Leanna, Tammy, Anne, Pete (doing the rabbit ears), Betty, Bob Brancel, and Dieter. We realized that we'd had coffee in Betty's little shop the last time RAGBRAI went through Anamosa. Iowa's a friendly state, and RAGBRAI is a small world.
In the meantime, we're busy. We've been out visiting the overnight towns, and along with Bob Brancel, we prepared and gave a slide presentation all about assigning campgrounds for the March 5th overnight town meeting in Des Moines. Also, with our year-round crew, we've met a few times about our 2020 goals--among other things, we're fleshing out a health and safety thread. And, oh yeah, we're building a new shower trailer with 20 stalls.
