I am interested in joining you for the day trip. I live in Atlantic, Iowa--80 miles west of DM, 60 miles east of Omaha. (For those of you coming from California, get on I-80, drive east approximately 2000 miles, turn south at exit 57 in Iowa, drive south 6 miles and you are in Atlantic). Most Saturdays or Sundays would work.
I shoot mainly LF and ULF.
