Help me name the BIG MN ride

OK, I’ve been thinking. I’ve been doing this “IL-IA-MN-WI Tour” for a few years. I want to give it a PROPER name. Similar to the “Slimey Crud run” . This way we can refer to it by name, not call it the “the BIG MN ride”

Any ideas?

Anna...step away from the Thesaurus.

Just call it the Run Around the Corner (you hit 4 corners after all)

Better still, just call it the Wizard Hat Run and be done with it!



edit: The Winona Rider Run has my vote. That's PERFECT!

Well, actually the first ride was September 2001, you didn’t live in MN then, although at the time I had no idea it would evolve in to such an elaborate and regular ride.

I just loved the route so much that when you actually moved there, that was an incentive to hit those roads again and bring some more people with. The first ride was the “Visit Nick in MN” ride, we rode all the way to the Twin Cities, a freakin’ long ass trip. Now these trips are more like “Meet up with Nick in Winona”

Life has no instruction manual. Parts and labor can be impossible to find. Many go down the road with parts that are in need of service. A breakdown is eventual.
