I mentioned last week that Iowa was the state that got our two detours. First up was about 20 minutes out of the way from our dash across on I-80 and it took us to Riverside, Iowa, future birthplace of James. T. Kirk.
There was NO WAY I was going to get close enough to Kirk’s future hometown and not stop to see it.
Yes. I am a big nerd.
No, if you don’t know who James T. Kirk is, I can’t help you. (I mean, I can tell you he’s the captain of the starship Enterprise, but beyond that, you’ve lived a sheltered and deprived life and you need to watch some Star Trek.)
I loved that all the lamp posts have little flags with photos of the original crew on them (you can see Scotty and Uhura in the title image if you look close.)

There was a museum. They have some pretty cool Star Trek memorabilia. Including a life-sized Gorn. And really, who doesn’t want their photo with a life-sized Gorn?
