I've been to Dubuque , Sioux City, Keokuck, Council Bluffs, the big boys of Des Moines, Iowa City, Cedar Rapids, Waterloo/Cedar Falls and The greatest place in Iowa, with the best name, Okiboji. Do I qualify?
I would say you do and I have been to the same except northwest so I do not qualify
Oh come on Perk. It was just a start me up thing. I know those aren't the corners. I've been to a lot more towns than those. Just fishing for feed back.
Yeah you do. I haven't been to Ottumwa, but Iv'e been to Red Oak and Mount Pleasant. This reminds me of that Little Feat song.
I haven't been to way southeast Iowa much. Or way Northeast of Prairie DuChene. I might have misspelled that.
I was just wondering if you guys get around Iowa much?
Life is hard. It's really hard if you're stupid.
Only the NW and SW corners. I haven't been to anywhere NE of Cedar falls or SE than Iowa City
I grew up sioux city. Have spent some time in Council Bluffs, Okoboji, Dubuque, Davenport, DSM, IC, CR, W-loo/CF. So I've pretty much hit up the "big" cities.
No you missed Webster City Wolf you have never been to this big city
Yeah no sh*t and we both left out Fort Dodge. As a youngster I listened to their radio station after I went to bed. What was that one KIOA? Something like that?
Yup it is, I am in Dodge often actually
I also noticed we all intentionally left out Lames
I have. Spent many of summers up at Okoboji because my Grandparents have a house up there, and my cousins have a house on West Lake. My other Grandparents live in SW Iowa, near Creston. Been to Keokuk, and been fishing up in the NE part of the state for trout. I've been errwhere.

I used to have two very close friends from Webster City. I haven't seen either one of them in almost 20 years, though.
Lames is the sphincter of our great state. I have been there and I have absolutely no desire to ever go back!
Only the best come from W.C
It is "Okoboji" and yes, you qualify.
Grew up in Rock Rapids, 50 miles west of Okoboji. Mom and Dad had a cottage there for many years, which I thoroughly enjoyed! We were near Miller's Bay and the Iowa Lakeside Lab. Used to boat ride over to the "O'Farrell Sisters" for lunch (near the causeway between East and West lakes.) SW Iowa...born there, Red Oak near the end of WW II. Also, have fished about every trout stream in NE Iowa. And, in SW Wisconsin in more recent years. I have been in dozens of towns across the state. You would be unlikely to come up with a town name I haven't either been to or at least heard of.
Weird, one of my best friends is from Red Oak and now teaches in Rock Rapids.
I grew up in Red Oak. Spent summers fishing in Okoboji. Been to Dubuque several times but not really north of that like Decorah or Cresco. Only been through SE Iowa on my way to St. Louis.
The will is not here, the will is at my office next to the hot plate with the frayed wires.
I actually agree, besides visiting friends, I have no reason to go back there. Its just a weird city to me and I really didn't like it at all while leaving the bias at home.
