Thanks for posting this. My in-laws are in Strawberry Point. Its nice to know there's a place close by if we ever need work when we are back there.

We have a metal trellis in our backyard that we bought last summer at a shop in Marion, while checking out the antique stores.

Dang, you scared me...I thought you were going to say the trellis attacked your AS. We all know steel and aluminum don't get along too well.

No, It's sitting back there behaving itself. However, we don't totally trust it. We have it bolted to the house.

Tree

Was the tree hiding in a corn field? maybe you were chased into the tree by a rogue group of pigs.
That's it, I can't think of anymore stereotypes of Iowa! Oh wait maybe it's just a dream!
Sorry

The damage can be even more severe as was demonstrated in Yellowstone National Park following the WBCCI International Rally in Boise, Idaho (1998). I was on a Grey Line Tour of the park when we were stranded for about 30 minutes in line of traffice that was totally stopped. When we finally began moving again, we were shocked by the sight of a highly polished Airstream Motorhome . . . it had been charged by a bull Bison who saw his reflection in the side of the Airstream. I later learned that the damage to the Airstream had been esimated to be in excess of $20,000.

The bison walked away with little more than a scratch . . . . . .

One more good reason not to polish an Airstream.

I had a mishap before tow mile #1 on my "new" '72 without the TV attached.I was in the process of swapping new LTX 235 75r15 in place of "old" coopers on axles that barely dropped at all. I decided to put another block of wood under the jack to get more clearance for the tight install and I lowered the jack and heard noise that made the hair on my neck stand up.I had left the wheel leaning against the hub! DOOH !! (Well, I'll be a "different brand of trailer") Yep, I'm a character, I guess I just rubbed a little off on the AS. I just hope I haven't established some sort if pattern!
