    Morons like that need a TOTAL truck boycott... they'll learn pretty darn quick just how much they rely on trucks.

    Mesquite was one of my regular stop-n-eat places. Terrible's at Primm was a regular sleep spot. I don't gamble, but I prefer casinos over truck stops because they are cleaner and have better amenities and food... cheaper too.

    Well they have totally screwed up Mesquite. Frankly, if I was still driving I would NEVER stop there anymore. The Oasis is closed. The truck parking behind the convenience store across from Virgin River is now charging to park there. The gambling at the Black Casino's, that is Virgin River and Casa Blanca sucks.

    It is not too bad at the Eureka and their food is better than the other places, but it is nothing to brag about.

    HalpinUout, I take it you are an O/O. I met a guy at one of the casinos I go to a while back who plays in Vegas "professionally" (dont know what that means). I don't recall his name but he was good at the craps table too.
