Bubba's Three Goals of the Tour

1) Honor America's Veterans

 

2) Promote Iowa tourism

 

3) Provide for my family

NOTE:  The goal is to be unique and tell area specific stories on each rock. The artist will not include every era/branch/race/gender etc on each rock but rather, the goal is to represent all of that across the entire tour with those specific stories. Think of each rock as a piece of a puzzle, not all encompassing until you step back and look at the entire project. If you don't see something represented on a certain rock, that means it probably will be, or already is represented on another rock.  Please understand that the artist has control of the content/design of each rock, relying on each county for some of the ideas to inspire said design.
