I'm going and bringing a small group with me. (assuming lottery, etc.) From the Washington, DC area.
I grew up in Iowa and went on the ride twice back in the early 80's. Obviously, I'm a bit older now, so the ride will be different.. slower, etc. We have 6 from the DC area that are headed that way this summer, and I talked my retired, Norwegian bachelor farmer (ala Lake Wobegon) uncle to be a roady. Drive a vehicle for us, get a camping spot, haul our gear, etc. He's on our team as a non-rider.
We are really looking forward to this! and oh.. the group is at least partly an extension of a hash group, hence the name. DC Hash House Harriettes and Harriers (DCH4). I've been told by another hasher that there will be a fatboy hash some evening during the week. :-)
