Well, with Sioux Falls behind us, we headed on to Muscatine, Iowa.
We had Sasquatch and Lock Ness on our minds so we routed our trip to hit Spirit Lake and Okopoji Lake only to find no monsters other than the thousands of retired people. We love retirees, but we were looking for some Squatch pics and only found moth balls and lots of dentures. While quite scary in their own right, not what we had in mind. We thought about calling in the local BFRO, but just kept on moving Check out Finding BigFoot on Discovery for more on the BFRO.
Hunger pains got the best of us as well as a few missed exits so we ended up running aground on Jethro’s BBQ Island just outside of Des Moines. Bevery Hill Billys and Gilligan’s Island collide. I highly recommend Jethro’s to anyone looking for BBQ in the Des Moines area. It was soooo gooooood! The BBQ French Dip was amazing! The MacNCheese was great! It was all good other than the gaining of ten pounds.
Onward ho – Muscatine was a bit boring. The Mrs. Pippy river was rocking as usual, but that was really all that Muscatine had to offer. Sorry, Muscatine, you just didn’t have much going on. People actually live on the Mrs. Pippy river which was a bit odd as that just does not seem like a safe place to live. Anyway, that is it for now.
