Aren't there any Iowan veg*ns? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("><br><br><br><br>
I was born in Fort Dodge and was raised in a small town (200 people tops) for the first two years of my life. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Meo--are you still in Iowa?<br><br><br><br>
My parents are both from Iowa and I get to the Sioux City area fairly frequently. Talk about your devoid-of-good-vegan-eats town. Yikes!!

I was stranded in Ft. Dodge in 1991 over halloween! My friend Sheri was in Des Moines and I left my kids with her for trick-or-treating while i went to Ft. Dodge just for the night and then the big ice storm hit! I remember MN got 30 inches of snow! I was stuck there for 3 days and poor Sheri ran out of formula for my then 1 mo. old Christine.<br><br>
I lived in Des Moines off and on for a couple years. I was there for the floods of '93, whoopee! No water for a whole month!<br><br>
(whew! sorry....what a flashback! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"> )

Fart Dodge represent! I was concieved on a rainy afternoon in that sh!thole. Born on the grand Satanic holiday that is on April 30, 1980. I lived there nearly all my 'till I fled to Oklahoma on January 10, 2002. Oklahoma was worse, so back to Iowa I returned in May. A month later I made a second retreat, to my sancuary, Milwaukee.

That ice storm was awesome! I nearly died when a large hunk 'o' tree came tumbling down right in front of me.

I was just talking to someone about Dubuque. I don't know much about eastern Iowa, but I've heard this town is a real shi+hole.

I'm an Iowa vegan too. I live in Bettendorf. There aren't many vegans around here, and not many veg friendly restaurants either.

Hi Sarah, I live in Galena, IL--just across the river from you. I get to Dubuque about once a month or so. Have you been to the Oriental Market by the Asian Gourmet? They have a few interesting vegan things.

I'm from Ames, and I lived in Iowa City for a while, where I met many a vegan. I live in the south now, and I miss Iowa alot. I never thought I would say it but it's true.

Any of you been to Luther College? I've gone there for Dorian Music Camp the last two years, and that's my favorite place to be.
