|Skip Cronin (L) and Corey "Cornbread" Godfrey at the end of T.I.v4|
I did have some post event thoughts which were interesting. I mused on whether or not the event should move on from Decorah, and maybe that was prophetic, since T.I.v4 actually was the last Trans Iowa based out of that fine city, but the reason might surprise you. (More some other day on that)
One thought I posted was about how this event, Trans Iowa, is not at all like any other event, but from my viewpoint. Here is the quote:
"I love doing the event, I really do, but it's stupid. Really stupid from a financial point of view, really stupid from a time spent on it point of view, and really dumb from a family point of view"
This might give you a hint as to why after ten more years of this madness it is time to put the event away, never to be seen again. But I have a post coming which addresses this in better detail. The thing I will say here is that "fun" has run its course for me. I attained my goals, I had my fun, and I am done with it. Some folks are telling me "I" am Trans Iowa.That without me, it doesn't exist whether someone else does it or not. I don't know..... Seems rather pompous to me to even think in those terms, but a good friend of mine was wagging his finger at me just the other night, insisting it was so. Maybe......
