Day 2 – Chicken-man Can Drive

Today we covered almost 1000 km and Chuck took a 3 hour shift at the wheel. It was a big step for me considering my control issues. I know he’s a good driver and has driven larger vehicles so the logical part of me was fine, the neurotic control freak part was not. It was weird to be on that side of the RV and even weirder to get up and walk around at 65 miles per hour (104km/h).
It was mostly a mad dash to get the kilometers in but we took some time to check out the World’s Largest Truck-stop in Iowa. I had stopped there during the Wild West tour in 2016 but it was Chuck’s first visit. It is mostly a big souvenir/gift shop and food court but some interesting old trucks inside and lots of supplies for your semi.
When we got to Iowa City we found Jimmy Jack’s BBQ and enjoyed some of the best BBQ I’ve had in a long time, possibly ever. Seriously if you are ever in Iowa City check it out. We arrived at 8:40 and they graciously served us even though they close at 9:00 on Sunday. The meat was meaty and smoked to perfection and the sides of mac & cheese and corn bread were magnificent. I realize the word “and” was in that last sentence a lot but you get what you pay for so if you want to send me some cash I will edit it to remove some of the repetitiveness. Just kidding, you can send money I just won’t be editing this post.
