    Food along i70 frisco area.

    Not pizza or burgers, but the Lost Cajun in Friso is awesome. For pizza I’d go to Vail to get Pazzo’s.

    PSA: MR sale at Scheels

    No meat shelf, but I think it would still work decently for getting the first load out if you use it as a daypack.

    PSA: MR sale at Scheels

    If you’re in the market for a MR pack you might want to check your local Scheels. I just picked up a Scapegoat 35 in Iowa City for $150.

    MT residents thoughts on Steve Bullock

    I still think he has a chance. There’s so many running, and so many are on the far left that they’ll cannibalize the extremist vote. There are a lot of centrist here in Iowa, once he gets his name out there I think he’ll do alright. He just needs a little time.

    Swap hunt

    I’d help you out in Iowa, but it’s not otc. I used to live in IL so I could give you some general help there if that’s where you pick. Good luck, Ben

    MT residents thoughts on Steve Bullock

    Thanks for the feedback folks. He sure sounds like someone I can support. Looking forward to meeting him on the campaign trail.

    MT residents thoughts on Steve Bullock

    Thanks for confirming my suspicions. It’s nice to have a good (there’s no such thing as perfect) option to support and throw my tiny sphere of influence behind. As for his odds... I wouldn’t count him out. A lot of “unknowns” end up doing alright in Iowa.

    MT residents thoughts on Steve Bullock

    I just saw he’s tossing his hat in the ring for president. Living in Iowa, we have a disproportional say in who gets the nomination. It’s seems to me in order to get elected in MT you have to be pro hunting and fishing, but I don’t know anything about this guy. So my question to you Montana...

    Your impressions of Meopta binoculars

    My buddy runs Meopta, I run Swarovski. I like mine better, but his are darn good especially for the $$$.

    Iowa BHA pint night

    The Iowa City/Coralville event will likely be a weeknight, so no interfering with a game day. I believe a Sioux City event is in the works. If you use the Facebook, we have a page there to keep people updated on events and issues.

    Iowa BHA pint night

    Right now Ankeny is the only one scheduled. We’ll be having one in the Iowa City area mid October. I’m sure we’ll be adding more, but we’re just getting the chapter started up at this point. Hopefully you can make it to one.

    Any Real Estate Agents?

    Two other things I'd suggest. First, pick the broker you are going to work for wisely. You don't have a reputation in real estate yet, but your broker does. Second, don't waste your money buying leads from the likes of zillow,, etc... . It's a complete waste of money, and time.
