Rocking at the Hairball with BoB!

 After a morning of trout fishing with my brothers .  I hooked with the Ragbrai crew and my adopted brother  B0b.

First stop.  Joe and Vicky Price for a little taste of the Blues.
 The first of several bike rides past the Campanile on the UNI campus.

Several traditions are associated with the Campanile.  First, tradition has it that because there were formerly so few men on campus, a male student would call a woman student at random and ask her to meet him at the Campanile at a particular time.  He would then wait in the bushes.  If he did not like her appearance, he would leave her waiting, go back to his room, and set up a similar date with someone else.According to another tradition, a woman did not become a full-fledged co-ed until she had been kissed at midnight under the Campanile.
 The catholic student center sits at the former location of the BEE HIVE.  I like to think of it as a shrine in honor of our years spent growing up at the campus.
 I hooked up with Bob down on the hill for a beverage and pizza at the "Other Place".
 As the evening rolled in the bikers rolled in as well and they were ready to rock!
 Hairball is a Rock & Roll experience you won't forget. A band puts on a concert - Hairball puts on an event! The lights, sound, video screens, smoke, fire, blood, bombs, confetti, spiders, snakes & monsters (oh my) and the screaming hoards of rabid Hairball fans create an event - an event that hits you so hard!
  Rock & Roll will NEVER die!!!
