@TravelIowa #FieldofDreams April 27

I started the Coach4aday blog in 2014 and have done daily posts on one topic for each year. In 2014 my daily posts were on the “Beer of the Day”, 2015 it was “A Friend of a Friend”, 2016 I wrote about “North Carolina”, and in 2017 it was “Colleges and Universities”.
The one consistent piece of feedback I have received with this blog is the 2015 series on “A Friend of a Friend”. Readers and blog followers said please bring it back. The stats also back that up with the number of views each of those posts received.
So in 2018 two things will happen with the Coach4aday blog; One I plan to collaborate with a friend named John Rancke and revisit some of those 2015 “A Friend of a Friend” posts and do some new ones with a slightly different twist. I write the posts on odd-numbered days each month and John handles the even-numbered days.
In addition John and I will write about things we both are interested which will include basketball, food, people, music, our granddaughters, and great stories.

The House in Field of Dreams

On Sunday April 22, 2018 my wife and I both said we had never watched the movie Field of Dreams from beginning to end. We got Netflix up and running and it was offered as an option.

The house in the movie really caught my attention and I wondered if it really was in Iowa. It is located in Dyersville, Iowa. The home at the time of the filming belonged to the Don and Becky Lansing. There is a famous line in the movie where Shoeless Joe Jackson ask Ray  (the character portrayed by Kevin Costner) is this heaven?  Ray’s answer is no this is Iowa.

Field of Dreams

That house is already one of the most visited movie sites of all time. Now, the experience is going one step farther. The set was built on the Lansing family farm in Dyersville, Iowa for the 1989 classic.

Once filming wrapped, the family kept the field just as it was and fans of the movie have flocked to it ever since. After 30 years, you can finally spend a night in the old farmhouse. Your stay includes a commemorative baseball, a copy of the film, and actor Dwier Brown’s book.


Want to learn more about the house click link below. In 2017 they had free admission.

  1. We stopped by there on a 5-week trip around the country around 25 years ago. It was wonderful. At that time another farmer owned and worked much of what should have been right field. I guess he gave it up because that’s where everyone walked into the corn. The owner was there with a scrapbook and a big metal water cooler. Nothing commercial about it. What a great place!
