Some more ideas....
Indianola....National Balloon Museum (hot air balloons)/National Balloon Classic
The AE Dairy Cow in Des Moines
I don't know what exit, but I remember when we were little and drove from Sioux City to Des Moines a lot on I-80, there was an exit that had some sort of observation tower. Google search didn't turn up what I wanted...maybe someone can help me out here.
its on the east side of des moines near the fair grounds if im not mistaken
No it was west of Des Moines. I want to say somewhere between Adair and Stuart, but could be mistaken.
Or I could be completely off base. I'm 99% positive it wasn't in a town or near a city
I did see that the Lakes area was in there three times already, but no jig aboard the Queen II?
Also, where is that tower in West Okoboji? I didn't recognize it.
How about Camp Mitigwa? Any regional cub/boy scout would get a flash back from that place. Also its a pretty cool camp.

The National Balloon Museum and the A-E Cows are on the list for WIJ2. Camp Mitigwa is an awesome idea! I went there 3 times as a scout and have nothing but great memories of the place! Except maybe my Order of the Arrow initiation - that was brutal. The Okoboji tower shot was taken at Lighthouse Point near West Okoboji. I'll be revisiting the Iowa Great Lakes this year too, but I don't know exactly where I'll shoot the clip. Maybe the Queen II will be the spot. Thanks!
Another cool idea might be to start a google map and put a 'push pin' in all the place you danced at. Could be a lot of places after the second film.
The Google map is another awesome idea! Matt Harding (the guy whose idea I "borrowed" in my video) is doing that on his latest round-the-world trip and it's a pretty interesting feature on his website. Might have to play around with that.
Great Job Jeff. The second one should include The Great Jones County Fair. I mean it is your home county.:confused:
By the way, I'm from Monticello.
hey jeff, i know you said that you were unsure if you needed more suggestions, but you should definitely do a jig in front of the golden domes in fairfield. i am pretty sure the domes and the rest of the maharishi university of management is not your average site in the midwest, lol.
Golden Dome of Pure Knowledge
Hi all, I posted the sequel (and finale) last weekend on YouTube, and after reading this thread again, I need to thank you all for the great ideas. Most of your suggestions made the cut! Enjoy.
Oh yes, an empty JTS made the cut too.

Greatest video ever....
I love it that Ft. Madison is the prison.... Gravity was really funny too.
