I know it might be super cliché, but I'm really excited that we're going to be shutting down tonight at the big Iowa 80 truckstop. It's one of the things that I've heard about and kinda wanted to see.

Anyway, things have been going pretty good today. Previous frustrations are working out and we're rolling again instead of waiting around and hunting the ever elusive empty trailer. So that helps too.

Great place to visit. I go there anytime I get near Walcott.

The food court smells, odd.

There are a few trucks in the main building, but the place to see is the truck museum. The museum is worth the time to see. You can see it all in less than 1/2 hour. It's open from 9-5 tomorrow, so it might not be doable for you this visit.

Yeah, we'll be out of here by seven in the morning to make our appointment, but I'll definitely try to get back here sometime that I can take the time to see the museum.

And I guess luckily for me I don't really have a sense of smell right now. We have been going back and forth and almost every time going through Missouri... and I'm pretty sure I'm allergic to Missouri. Or at least to the pollen. I have no sense of smell left, and I'm quite certain I sneezed part of my brain out.

Eat in the restaurant. Best darn pork chops on the road.
