I may be coming to IA to work at Duane Arnold Nuclear Plant NW of Cedar Rapids. I should find out tomorrow and plan on being there next week. Can anyone provide assistance in finding a furnished apartment or condo to rent for 6 months or so? High speed internet a must. Also anyone willing to fill me in on the lay of the land there?

Hope to get a chance to meet some of you folks while there. Given my SC is my daily driver it will be making the trip.

If you make it up to Des Moines, get a hold of me. My SC is in storage in NW Iowa for a few months though.

6 months, that will allow you to go to the spring club clash if you want. Pontiac GTP's racing against SC's.

Thanks. Just got the call. I am assigned there and plan on driving out on Monday. Weather permitting and assuming no car troubles I will be there that day. Appreciate the offer. Nice to know there will be some fellow SC'ers in the area. Will contact you once I arrive.

I'll start buring a few phone calls to see what we can find you for a place to live. Other than HS/Internet any preference on the living arrangements???

I just spoke to Duffy on the phone about an hour ago. He got a late start, but expects to be in CR in the next few hours.

Yes I made it to the hotel around 1 AM. No problems just the late start Mike mentioned. Car ran fine...got about 20 MPG fully loaded. Thanks for asking.

Good. You might have got better MPG if it wasn't for the headwinds. There is a high wind advisory for the western half of Iowa.

I think it is likely the nose stuck up in the wind and extra weight did not help the MPG, but it wasn't all that much less than I get usually on a trip. My SC is modded pretty extensively and the 3:27 gears certainly don't help. And of course I was not running all that slow either.

Good deal. I'll have to make it out to Club Clash this spring for sure.
