No running. Drove from Duluth to Lincoln, Nebraska. The highlight was a visit to the Bob Feller museum in Van Meter Iowa. "The Heater from Van Meter".

Hey that was darn close to where we lived many years. Feller had an attitude.

Well, since you mention itů

I grew up in Anaheim, Ca worshipping Nolan Ryan. He's still my all-time favorite player. Feller had quite a few critical things to say about Ryan over the years. I think he was jealous of Ryan for eclipsing Feller as the games best power pitcher.

But I couldn't just drive by after I saw the sign out on I-80.
