Greetings from Iowa

IowaTraveler:
Hello everyone! Iíve finally put in the time to make an account and write up an introduction post after lurking here for about two years. Now that Iíve stopped procrastinating and gotten that out of the way, I look forward to finally being able to contribute to discussions.

As for a bit about myself, I'm a lifelong resident of Iowa and I am currently a college student. Iíve had a lifelong interest in most things road-related that was at least partially fueled by the trips to visit family in northeast Iowa, Indiana, and Michigan that I went on growing up. Now that I have my own car, Iíve spent the last few years taking trips to explore Iowaís county road system and visit new counties (Hence the username).

As for my specific roadgeek interests, I really like the sound and feel of driving on concrete roads, and Iíve always been amazed by the wide variety of sounds that can be made by different grooving patterns. Another one of my main road-related interests is the history of highways, such as how alignments and construction standards have evolved over time.

Thanks for taking the time to read this, and I look forward to meeting you all.
