    what about Lake Rathbun? Its second biggest lake in Iowa. It is off highway 5 south of Albia.
    there is fuel docks, marinas etc on the lake
    I would ride there if anybody wanted to meet up.

    rode on lake rathbun yesterday. water was high and you need to avoid the areas where tree tops are showing above water but really no concerns. nice day for a ride 80 and sunny. I would suspect that all the boat ramps will be back open by the weekend. 3 of the 6 launch spots were closed due to high water. let me know if anybody is interested and I will trailer over for the day. we can meet up at information center or the marina. $3 for daily fee launch
