17 Miles from Tommy Turtle on North Dakota Highway 3 in Dunseith, North Dakota, the two RV Gypsies came across the "World's largest man-made turtle" Wee'l Turtle that was erected as a novelty in 1982, welded together from over 2,000 steel wheel rims by George Gottbreht, owner of Dale's Thrifty Barn, which conveniently stands next door.

The head alone on Dunseith's metal turtle weighs over a ton, and is mounted on a pivot so you can bob it up and down if you've been working out -
Go for it Karen - Yeah right - LOL
