are in Iowa.

We are Vermonters travelling to Wyoming. Two days ago we found ourselves stuck in Brooklyn Iowa needing a new fuel pump. Everyone we met in the surrounding area was super friendly and helpful. We were even contacted by someone at the Tanger Outlet in Williamsburg who found our daughter's duffel bag which we had lost on rte 80.

Although our time in Iowa wasn't the most fun, since we were broken down, the Iowan people made a bad situation better.

Kudos to you Iowa...you breed a good sort!

Well good to see you made it to Wyoming safe and sound! Last time we headed out that way the transmission in my sister-in law's Mitsubishi SUV went out and the closest town was Cheyenne 30 miles back... so I know how that is. I'm glad you had some good people who cared about your situation while you were in our state.

So kudos back to your for the complement!!

Iowa. Home of some of the most decent people in the United States, and I mean that with all sincerity.
