Death of RAGBRAI Co-founder same day the 46th Annual RAGBRAI begins
RAGBRAI came through this area on Sunday 7/22. I figured I would look into it a bit more. It's basically a giant bike ride that thousands attend to ride bicycles across Iowa.
Anyway while looking it, I see that the guy who founded Ragbrai just so happened to die yesterday which was the start of the 46th annual event.
Of course "Sacrifice"=46 and 73....started in 73' now the 46th anniversary.
Registers Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa=227
He dies on 22/7.
Ragbrai began 8 months 1 day after his 38th bday.
Bike=18, 27, 81
This year it began in "Onawa"=18, 27, 81
The other guy who founded Ragbrai turned 88 years old on March 10th 2018.
That means he was 43 years old when Ragbrai began.
John Karras=43, 52
Register=52(rev red).Sponsored by Des Moines Register
John Karras wife also died on 11/16/17.
She died 115 days before his bday.
Notice he lives in Scottish Rite Park and they show him pictured with Scottish Rite Freemason Terry Branstand.
Scottish Rite Freemasonry=115
Register=115(rev)..what the Des Moines Paper is called who sponsors Ragbrai.
Terry Branstad=57, 165
Scottish Rite=57, 165
Ann Scott Karras=174
She dies 174 days after her bday.
Another thing I find interesting to me being drawn to document about this is where these guys were from.
Kaul was from Detroit and Karras from Cleveland.
I have been documenting like crazy the connections to the Cleveland Indians being cursed by Rocky Colavito being traded to Detroit.
