Another Successful Border Defense


Yep, those are some of our MINIs above, proudly snaking down Snake Alley in Burlington as we headed out for a day of fun at the 4th EIM Border Skirmish Drive this past Saturday. This was our first Border Skirmish in the southeastern corner of Iowa which meant new roads, new sights, and new discoveries. It was great to finally get out and motor again!

In addition to the drive, it was a day of other fun memories too — from the view along both sides of the Great River Road along the Mississippi River between Burlington and Keokuk, circling the Nauvoo Temple; our unexpected entry in the Civil War reenactment in Keokuk, lunch along the banks of the Des Moines River at the Bonaparte Retreat, shopping for goodies at the Dutchman’s Store, exercising the twisties in Lacey-Keosauqua State Park and Geode State Park, and capping it off with a great meal at Gator’s Grill and Spirits back in Burlington.

Thanks to everyone who came out and joined us. We especially want to thank first time motorists Bob and Pam C. from Cresco, Larry and Mary Ann H. from Pella, and Mark from Cedar Rapids.

Lots of pictures from the day’s activities are accessible in our Photo Gallery. You can go directly to this picture set using the following link:
