That's all I have for pictures taken in Nebraska, but I still have plenty to share from my drive back home.  On 7-28-17 I stopped for some pics on the other side of the rest area along I-80 near Shelby, Iowa that I stopped at heading to Nebraska.  I'm almost certain that this is the same location former member HuntFlatbed took  and posted quite a few pics from years ago, and the main reason why I wanted to stop.  I didn't stay for terribly long as there was another spot I wanted to hang out at for a while (more on that later), but still have enough for a couple posts.

Some cool catches, the Clark W900, the Clubb 389, and the two tractor pulling rigs stand out as being especially nice. ;D

The Landstar heavy hauler is definitely awesome, but the favorite for me is the Tessman 389 tanker! The Night Path Cascadia is also pretty sharp looking. Interesting catch on the International cabover, looks to be some kind of RV or trailer hauler. Definitely don't see too many 9800s anymore. Most of them were fleet trucks, and an overwhelming majority were exported after retirement.

Damn, that's as impressive a lineup as I've seen in a while. The big bunks, the heavy haulers, the big bunk heavy haulers. The stretched bunk 386 (never seen a big bunk like that before) pulling for K&B is very cool too, the Sercombe Coronado is neat (glad to see one of their regulars in the wild). The International 9800 (looks like it hauls sprinters or light loads like rooftop vents/etc.), the big bunk 579 with the side door, the heavy haul 389 for Britt, the heavy haul 379 for Landstar, I mean it's hard to single one out because they are all neat in their own right.

The American Wind Transport Kenworth is super sharp, awesome catch and great photos of all of these! Also really like the Valley Transport 389, they run a great looking fleet.

The reason I did not spend longer at the spot in western Iowa is because I had another spot further down the road I wanted to try out.  It's always cool to stop at the massive Iowa 80 truckstop in Walcott, just west of the Quad Cities, and as I had discovered in 2015, behind the back corner of the truck parking lot there is a little hill overlooking Interstate 80 that works well to take pictures from.  I did walk through the lot there to see if there were any trucks that really caught my eye and worth sharing here, but seeing nothing too special I spent most of my time taking pics of trucks on I-80 instead.

Man, that 389 for Wild Hog is really nice(except the painted fuel tank, I'm not a fan), and the Solo Journey 389 is slick as well. 8)

I'm a little late on these sets, but awesome photos of all these! The Hog Wild Peterbilt is very sharp, but that Graphic Arts Express T680 is one of the nicest trucks I have seen in awhile, and definitely the nicest T680 by a long way 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8)
