    Where are you at in town? If you are on the east/north side, you can pretty much forget about it.

    I'd have to think anyone west of Squaw Creek (Campustown/West Ames) would be fine.

    Oh yeah, just pick a major route and go for it.


    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.

    A co-worker of mine's husband was up in Ames and he got back down to Des Moines taking 69 south. If you can get to 69, you should be ok

    People south and west of Squaw Creek can make it to Des Moines and Boone with no problem. People in the area between Squaw and Skunk (Downtown, North Grand) must take George Washington Carver Ave through Gilbert up through Story City to get out.
