THE WORLDS LARGEST TRUCKSTOP!
I have been past here at least a hand full of times but never stopped - this trip my dream became a reality!
This place was huge and amazing - they had anything and everything you could think of - there was a dentist, a chiropractor, a Verizon dealer, dolphin t-shirts, trucker boots, knick knacks, it was multi-level - they had at least 2 full size semis inside this wonderful redneck mall! They had underwear and socks! They of course had a whole section devoted to truck parts - all the chrome you could imagine, seats, a wall of lighting for your truck - the oldest compared it to Build A Bear - "look Mom it's a Build A Truck"!
We of course ate breakfast here - this is a man who would walk into a Starbucks and ask for the closest thing to truck stop coffee they got so was in heaven with 100% truckstop coffee by just ordering "a cup of coffee" and they even had a breakfast on the menu call 'the usual' - so he could walk in, sit down and say to the waitress "I'll have a cup of coffee and the usual" - ingenious absolutely ingenious!
Posing in a semi inside!
and there was no way I wasn't going to do the same!
I am not kidding in the least when I say I can officially cross this off my 'to do' list because yes folks it was definitely on there!
and don't worry if you can't make it there yourself - you can shop on-line people - I am crossing people off my Christmas shopping list right and left now that I found this site!
And to think this was just the beginning of the fun on our weekend get-away-Manning Iowa here we come!
