You know you’re an IOWAN if…

You know you’re an Iowan if…

you’re stuck behind a tractor on the highway and have an excuse for being late,

being “Iowa nice” is your way of life,

going on vacation means to go to Arnolds Park, Lake Okoboji,

you’ve played the yard game, cornhole,

your go-to foods are Maid-rite sandwiches and tenderloins,

you’re skilled at dodging a deer;

you cheer for the Hawkeyes and Cyclones even if you don’t follow sports,

you’ve met the presidential candidates,

you shop at Hy-Vee, have breakfast at Hy-Vee, have worked at Hy-Vee,

your wedding reception was held in your church basement,

your road trips begin on I-80,

you measure distance in time, not miles. “Be there in 5.”

you may have moved from Iowa, but still think it’s one of the best places to live,

admire the massive 220-pound bird flying inside the Des Moines Airport. “True work of art.”
