Why Walcott?

Well, its like this. A few years ago my wife, her sister and I were on the tail end of a long road trip and I knew we would be stopping somewhere in eastern Iowa for the night. Looking in my motel book I tried to find some small town where we could stay, because after days on interstates with trucks all around us, I thought it would be nice to find a small, peaceful town to stay in. I pictured a field with cows grazing by the motel, or something like that. The book said there was a motel in a small town called Walcott, so we reserved a room from the road in Illinois.
So when we arrived, did we find cows grazing in a field? not exactly. We found our motel smack in the middle of "The World's Largest Truck Stop."
Actually the motel was just fine, but the surroundings were not what I had imagined. oh well, live and learn.
