Happy Summer 2013!

All right folks, it’s a new year and a new summer. Last year I completed 34 of my goals. Last year I claimed it was possibly my last summer in Iowa. This time it’s real. I’ve officially been accepted to graduate school in Minnesota starting in the fall. So let’s set the bar a little higher because the stakes are elevated too. I’m still planning on blogging once a week (maybe more if I’m feeling particularly ambitious). But let’s go for eliminating 50 Iowa adventures. In honor of my new lofty goals, and the beginning of summer, I’ve compiled some new ideas. And of course, I’m always open for suggestions. All right, let the summer begin.

    Looks ambitious and wonderful. Do they actually jail squirrels in Pottawattamie County? I have a few in my yard I’d like to ship there for sentencing.
