Or you could move to Des Moines. I want to organize a group to improve the fishing on the Middle Raccoon River. We need to change farming practices and rebuild fishing habitat wiped out by floods. It was once a trophy smallmouth fishery, but if something isn't done to change the current status it won't hold anything but junk fish in a few years.
How is the economy in Des Moines? I make it there a few times a year and it seems to do pretty well, but I am sure living there would give a different picture.
