I had a couple of extra days off for the 4th and planned to ride somewhere.. though didn't finalize the destination until Monday night, a mere 48 hours before GO time. Three of us would take off from MN, another would meet up there. We were headed to Lake Okoboji... In Iowa. Yes, Iowa. Everyone gives me a look of 'you are crazy' when I say there is a super fun lake in IA.. considering there are 10,000 lakes in MN! But it is a great place and a lot of fun, so that was the plan. One of the girls found a kick ass little cabin right across the street from the lake and within walking distance to downtown shenanigans. We all met up in Lakeville the morning of the 4th - bikes all decked out in MERICA for the road.
