ANOTHER place we've (well, mostly me) have wanted to visit for years....the Iowa 80 Truck Stop west of Davenport, Iowa near the Mississippi River.
Here's the opening paragraph from their website:
They have a huge truck museum next door and have a very large Truck Jamboree every year. It's amazing.
|just a small portion of their parking lot that is being used for the jamboree|
Over 900 Truck parking spots !! Just so you can compare...as we crossed Nebraska, the truck stops there had 65, 80, 90, 55, and 150 truck parking stops each.
|Look how many parking spots for Iowa I-80 versus the Pilot in the upper right.|
|A Full-size truck and trailer....INSIDE !!|
|Another truck !|
|All the lights you could ask for on the wall.|
|Here's what they do with the lights|
|Three trucks in all inside|
|A full choice of chrome tailpipes|
|Anyone want to light up their truck?|
|...and even more chrome|
|at least 6 restaurants under roof|
|Anyone thirsty ?|
|As we left, we spotted this "Condo Truck"|
After all the searching, we only spent $60 on stuff. Guess our coach doesn't need any chrome or more lights.
|We caught up with this truck down the highway and couldn't resist taking our picture in the reflection.|
The Truck Stop was a pretty cool place to gawk over...glad we stopped.
