Manly Mustaches...Manly, Iowa!

It was meant to be! We ARE going to Manly, and we're taking a caravan of mustaches with us!

According to Mapquest, from my house our adventure will take 4 hours 38 minutes. Because we'll want to obtain the full "Manly Experience," there have been many suggestions of staying in a hotel. Mason City, Iowa, is just 10 miles south, and I've found a hotel that I've fallen in love with. The Comfort Inn in Mason City is pretty pimp. $63 per night--affordable, especially if we pack 6 people in a hotel. And look at this list of amenities:

Microwave
Complimentary Breakfast (All Rooms and Rates)
Modem Lines in Room
Hairdryer in Room
Refrigerator
Safe Deposit Box
Outdoor Parking
Truck Parking
Coffee Maker in Room
No Smoking Rooms/Facilities
Handicapped Rooms/Facilities
Indoor Pool
Telephone
Elevators
TV Remote Control
Free Parking
Iron
High Speed Internet
Laundry/Valet Services
Television with Cable
Radio
Wireless Internet
Continental Breakfast

Simply amazing!

Not only that, but I've been learning a little more about this town of Manly. 1300 residents...that's about 13 times the size of Barrows. 13 times more excitement to discover!

...And perhaps the best part of all! They have one historic site/museum: The Manly Caboose Museum. HOW PIMP IS THAT? a MANLY caboose museum? that definitely warrants viewing.

Elevators? What, is this the Ritz or something?

I strongly suggest you travel in packs and photograph yourselves in your shirts with as many mustached Manly natives as possible.

Hey, with elevators we could be just like Little John; either "get high" or "get LOW." Get it? Get it?

I hope we get arrested for distrubing tha peace.

You should count me in. I'll make ready use of the available truck parking.

Eric, you've been to my freaking blog. Which I think I'll delete. But your clue: Sherlock's last name is Holmes.
