Famous Dave's

We stopped in here from our rally in Wisconsin Dells. The first time we tried to eat, the place was packed. This at 1 PM, but unfortunately on a Sunday. We returned during the week, and the place was emptier, but we had some trouble with the service.

We DO like Dave's and enjoy the fact that the food is good in all the stores we've tried.

Winnebago Rally

During the rally, we served some food to the other RV'ers. They have food at all of the "state rows". We aren't a "state", but we joined in the fun, too.

Our favorite state's food was the green chile stew at New Mexico.

Taken at the opening parade for the Winnebago Rally in Forest City, Iowa. This was our 3rd year at the rally, held in the town where the Winnebago motorhomes are built.

When we visited Mayo Clinic, we stopped by the Spam Museum afterwards. Lots of fun.

Tank by RV Bob

This tank was part of the static display at the Iowa Gold Star Military Museum. The museum is located on the grounds of Camp Dodge, which was a major training facility near Des Moines. Today, it still houses the Iowa National Guard, but in 1918, there were tens of thousands of young men training for the trenches of Europe.

The museum is well worth a visit.
