Ep. #227 Clark Tower, Winterset IA
With some friends, we took a tour of Clark Tower in Winterset, Iowa. It's an interesting little place. And the kids (plus Robin) attempted acrobats on the top of it, which probably wasn't the best of ideas... Then we headed to Frostee's - great ice cream, and the sizes run LARGE.

Covered Bridges of Madison County - Winterset, Iowa
Madison County, Iowa is home to six covered bridges out of an original 19 such bridges in the county. The area celebrates this heritage with an Annual Covered Bridge Festival.
The county's bridges came to national fame first in the 1992 Robert James Waller best-selling book The Bridges of Madison County, and then later in the 1995 Clint Eastwood-directed movie of the same name.

Where in Iowa is Jeff?...The Sequel
Here is the 2008 version of Where in Iowa is Jeff? From February to November, I logged 9,850 miles and collected 300 dancing clips. Between the 2007 and 2008 videos, I visited all 99 Iowa counties and drove somewhere between 15,000 and 18,000 miles.
Since last year focused on the top-tier Iowa spots, this years video visits more obscure Iowa places and enabled me to interact more with Iowans along the way. If you think you've seen all of Iowa, you are wrong. Keep looking; you'll be amazed at what you find.
