Any Iowa Guys going to GIE In Kentucky

I went to to GIE last year and it was a blast. The guy that went with me last year cant go this year(his wife wont let him go). So i am looking to see if there is anyone from the Des Moines, Iowa area that may want to tag along. We can take one of my vehicles and I can arrange the tickets for the expo and the hotel.

P/M me if you are interested.

From SE Minnesota and I would like to go this year, but will see if it happens. Pretty far to drive, but don't necessarily want to pay airfare either.

let me know if you would like to make the trip. Last year it cost us like $400 each and that included 3 nights in a hotel and fuel round trip. This year I think it would be less because 1) fuel is less this year and 2)I bought a new dodge ram with the 6.7l cummins in it an it gets like 22-24 mpg on the highway.
The trip last year took around 10 hours from Des Moines and we jsut switched off drivers on the way. You would of course have to make the trip from rochester yourself though. I think thats only 3 hours(I have a good buddy that lives there)

Let me know what you think.

Also there is room in my truck for 4 so that would make the fuel part cheaper per person
