    I went to ISU, moved away and now back - graduated in 2001. I have visited the forum before but figured since I now live in Iowa again I should join.

    Now that you see how weird most of us are, you might double think this move.

    Welcome. There are only a few weirdos here. It won't take long to recognize them.

    My wife and I moved from Des Moines to Oklahoma almost 2 years ago after spending 10 years in Des Moines after graduating from ISU. We definitely miss it (except for the cold weather) and hope to get back in the coming years.

    I think you'll be pleasantly surprised how Des Moines and the metro has changed.

    Where are you living?

    DSM Farmers Mkt
    Music under the Canopy
    Jasper Winery Thurs night music (Valley Junction is a decent alternative)
    bike trails
    Confluence Brewery combined with food trucks (515 is good, Firetrucker in Ankeny is decent)

    some of my favorite things
