  • Ok Ahodge75, I'm not sure if this is what you had in mind. This is a statue of Nile Kinnick, Iowa's only Heisman winner. He has an interesting story about his upbringing. It was widely thought that he would one day be a president. I've added a read as well in case anyone is interested.

      I Like It! It’s more of a local monument and it is something that’s means something to the community and that is just one of many things that makes this country Great! So you are up Sir, what’s next?

  • Ok up next..... To help with social distancing, how about your bike with wind turbine (power generation type) or windmill. The windmill could be an old farm style one that was used to pump ground water. So this has to be an actual standing physical unit and not a mural on a wall etc.

        Damnit Mikey, I was going to go grab this pic this morning! LOL

    • Up next is your bike with an "air mail" mail box. I don't know if they have regular ones but if they do it will work, the one i'm thinking about is usually by the regular mailbox but on a really tall pole.

        • Next up, your bike with a Tesla product. Either a car, charging station, or a home solar/back up battery system. Good Luck

          • Oh shoot, I just saw this, it should be easy but I'm not on the bike today. I had to adult it today.

                  Thanks, Mikey (though you may be thinking of another ironman from the old site...)

              • Mail pouch tobacco will be hard! might have to google to find one to ride to!

                Locations[edit]


                Originally, Bloch Brothers advertised on the walls of businesses, such as this theater in West Virginia
                These barns can be found in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, South Carolina, Tennessee, Wisconsin, West Virginia, Connecticut and California (Ontario, on Jurupa and Turner, and Merced County, CA-99 and Worden Avenue), although an increasing number have fallen into dilapidation or have been demolished. The barns, usually hand-painted in black or red with yellow or white capital lettering, read as: "Chew Mail Pouch Tobacco--Treat Yourself to the Best." Sometimes, they are surrounded on the left and right by a thin vertical blue border.

                More information here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mail_Pouch_Tobacco_Barn

                • In case you think this one is too tough, here's a photo I took today and a helpful link.

                    Thanks for the link. It appears there are a few not too far away. Not sure if I can get on the bike for a couple days after this midwest storm.

                • I followed that link and the one for Floyd county, Iowa is now covered up by a new building they built several years ago. Which sucks because it was right where I live.

                  • This one may be kind of tough. Maybe you should try something easier, like your bike with a Vampire on the back seat with a Capuchin on his knee.

                      Not really. I posted one earlier to demonstrate it really isn't that tough. If I had a spare hour today, I could go get another.

                    Theres one not to far away. Maybe Ill get out this weekend

                        Oh. duh!

                    • Got another Mail Pouch barn yesterday. Since it appears nobody else is going to get this one, I'll start a new challenge with lower difficulty.
