Things I know, and Things I didn't know (Part 1)

Here's something I knew:
During RAGBRAI in 1993, I had a heckuva good time. One of the memories from that trip across Iowa was going off the side of the road and peeing in the corn. Maybe it wasn't the highlight, but every guy enjoys the feeling of using the side of the road as his urinal.

Here's something I didn't know:
That I would be witness to my own child having that experience 13 years later. There's Sophie, finding her zen place while watching the corn grow in the middle of Iowa.

That's a classic. There's something primally envigorating about relieving oneself outside, and doubly so in a corn field. Maybe it's because a little of your minerals are going to end up in that ear of corn...or at least that's what we joked about last year.
