Boomerpalooza V

 Boomer's office.

Everyone's happy getting ready for the festival!!!
And the huge tent.  I don't think anyone was interested in it until the rain started, but that is hours away.
Some new pig roasters compliments of American HotBox Iowa City.
Some Ribs for the workers...
The Air Show has everyone's attention

Things looked pretty cleaned up in the aftermath.
But as always the picture of the randoms!   I'm pretty sure that is pig livers and bacon, but who knows...
This year we had a brewery tour the day after.  Just a guy with a bus, and a bunch of friends!

Nice Hat!

Nicole and Tim came out for some fun, staying on the boomerpalooza property!

 And we met some pilots heading home from the Reno air races that also were waiting on the fog to clear.  But we got home (Maybe a day late).

The Iron Butt

The IronButt organization has several different qualifying rides.  We set out to do the Saddle Soar.  1000 miles in 24 hours.  Documentation to prove it.
 Here we go!  3:25 am

4:15 official start time!

Salt Lake City
And a well deserved Lunch!
I think someone was bored on the road!

 Frisco.  Things get a little crazy after 950 miles...

 The End

 Official end time 22:48.

I've done this before but instead of fighting the heat the whole way I was racing to beat the snowstorm as I headed from Thousand Oaks, CA to home in Denver, CO.

The hole in the alley

 We noticed one day that this piece of concrete was sinking in the Alley.  We called Denver Gov and they delivered a note that required us to put a camera down the line to prove this was not our issue.  It was not and they re-paid, eventually sent out this crew to fix the damage.
 Ironically this was exactly the time Karyn's car was headed back to the shop.  Same truck driver, and 4 wastewater denver guys to help push that thing around. 

 The wastewater line was damaged; they fixed it, and the concrete patchwork before we were back from the shop.

Seattle the day after

 We went to the ocean to see a lighthouse.  The pic didn't turn out, but we got this one of us and the Pacific!
 What's that you say?  I couldn't hear.
 Seattle boat tour.
