Rain to Peoria

Leaving Waterloo, Iowa, and going east on I-80 we stopped at the World’s Largest Truck Stop. We have been here before and it’s a neat stop.

This time we went to see the Trucking Museum that is there.

Lots of vintage and unique trucks as well as signs, fuel pumps, and photographs. Here are some pictures from our visit there:

We heard thunder while in the museum and when we got back to the RV it began to rain hard, thunder and lightning. So we waited a couple of hours for the storm to pass before moving on. Tonight we are at another casino, the Par-A-Dice Casino in Peoria, Illinois. It is a small Riverboat Casino with a nearby hotel and a big parking lot.

  1. Love the truck museum photos! We stopped at the Iowa 80 a few years ago. I wish we had taken the time to see the museum.

    Hello Marsha and Bernie! It seems you might be headed east, possibly on I-74. Might you be heading towards Cynthiana? It would be great to have you as overnight guests sometime in good ol’ Kentucky! Lee & Jane
