(This is a post I tried to publish a couple of days ago. Blogger and Live Writer were not on speaking terms.)
I read about this place, I’ve seen it on TV. I even drove past it a half dozen times meaning to stop but never did. This time I almost drove right past it until Marti pointed it out.
We left Marti’s sister Anne yesterday and headed west on I-80.
The mid-west states don’t have much to see, so the Iowa 80 Truckstop was a welcome diversion.
This place is amazing. Walking in you are confronted with a reminder that this is going to be quite an experience.
Along with a bunch of restaurants, there was even all kinds of sparkling stuff to satisfy even Marti.
There are trucks all over the place, of course outside in the parking lot, but also inside. From old ones,
to even nice shiny new ones.
Walls of lights to dress up your truck (or motorhome),
and even fancy hood ornaments. Sherry would love to have this one on her motorhome, Winnona. ;c)
How about boots?
Maybe some custom embroidery for your hat, T-shirt, baby bib or even your undies? They’ll design and embroider it for you.
When you get tired of all the items for sale, you can walk next door to the Truck Museum. But that will have to be another post.
Thanks for visiting and feel free to leave a comment.
