World's Largest Truck Stop

Driving through Iowa on our way to Illinois, we just HAD to stop at the World's Largest Truck Stop in Walcott, Iowa.

As soon as I walked inside, I saw this pick-up truck right smack dab in the middle of the floor!


To the left was a food court and a large sit down area to eat.


The bathrooms were off to the right. I don't know about the men's bathroom (I didn't ask Jim!), but the women's was quite interesting! Of course it kept with the whole "trucking" theme, with the stalls made out of diamond plated sheets.

This wasn't the only truck in the store. Nosiree Bob! There was this nice blue one, which puts our Big Blue to shame, I'm afraid!


AND this spiffy looking yellow one!


After I was awed by the semis, I just started having fun taking photos. Take a gander and see what I mean:

Word of advice: You never want to be THISCLOSE to the grillwork of a moving truck.
Doesn't this look like it belongs on a James Bond car instead of a semi truck?
Smile pretty for the camera!


I was amazed to see this sign in the store:


Those are a LOT of amenities for the truckers!

I hope you enjoyed your tour of the
