what we've been up to (chapter 2)

After returning from Trans-Iowa, where I unfortunately wasn't able to do any bicycling, I got together with HC customer and friend "Chippolini". Chippo wanted to try his new Fargo on some gravel, and I was itching to get in a long ride of any kind. We rolled from HC and within 20 miles, we were on an extensive network of gravel roads just south of Apple Valley.

We rode to Northfield, had a nice lunch, and rode home. I had 85 miles. Chippo completed a generous gentleman's century.

The road where you laid your Goodrich down upon appears to be nothing more then a grass path. Where was that and what type of road is it? It looks like something far-far away.
