And that’s a list of what I knew about a fellow “Slicer” before we met up IRL (in real life) last Saturday for breakfast.
The power of blogging.
The power of paying attention.
The power of responding to fellow bloggers.
The power of subscribing to blogs written by other folks.
It felt like “old home week” because we’ve been blogging weekly and every day in March for several years. I could look it up, but this post isn’t about the numbers. It’s about the friendships, respect and genuine “kinship” of fellow bloggers!
They are on their way to California for their nephew’s wedding and several months ago said they would be going through Iowa. We met up at the Iowa 80 truck stop and had breakfast together before they headed across Iowa. Westward, Ho!
It’s convenient. Literally one block off of Interstate 80. Loaded with choices of places to eat. Knickknacks to examine. Souvenirs. Halloween items. Toys. Toys. Toys.
I’m not positive that the ferris wheel works. But it adds to the scenic view. And that’s the outside. The inside is spacious and puts most stores to shame with WIDE aisles and plenty of browsing space.
And vehicles. This is one of two trucks on the INSIDE of the building! Truck tail gates adorn the walls. And memorabilia fills all the nooks and crannies everywhere!
If you are going to be on I-80, this truck stop is about an hour west of the Mississippi River (the eastern border). Leave yourself some time to explore! LInk
So when you are planning to meet, talk and enjoy some face to face conversation, The World’s Largest Truck Stop should be on your list because it’s entertaining, easy to access, and also like all truck stops . . . has really “delish” food 24 hours every day! Check it out!
Take a risk.
You will be amazed at the friendships that will develop.
Write. Write. Write.
Blog. Blog. Blog.
Fellow “Slicers”, how many have you met IRL?
Where do you go to “meet up”?
Does it involve food or drink?
What do you have planned?
