As most of you know, I am involved in a new startup, IntelliCrop. As such, I am on the road quite a bit and recently had the pleasure of visiting with colleagues in Waterloo, Iowa. I always enjoy meeting with fellow aggies to discuss possible projects/businesses we can collaborate on!
As is customary, I plug the address into my Garmin, load up on coffee, grab the audio-book of choice (a James Patterson novel this time), and hit the road watching my house in the rear view already missing my family. Naturally this is the route the robotic voice inside the little navigation machine took me:
And I would be remiss if I didn't mention the Iowa 80 truck stop. It is the largest truck stop in the world located in Walcott, IA just off Exit 284. If you ever find yourself near there, pull off, stretch your legs, fill up the tank, and take a quick stroll through the establishment.
After arriving, we immediately dug in to potential projects and opportunities. Good times!
As I was leaving Waterloo, I pulled in for the normal fill up. I told my Garmin to take me home and off we went. But this time the little robotic voice had different plans. Instead of heading back on the interstate, the path home was down route 20.
