    I hadn't,either....until then, and never again, anywhere else. We didn't need fuel, so we had to pay for the shower.

    I certainly don't doubt your story any, I was just commenting on squirrellsgonewild's implication that paying $10 for a shower was absurd. It is, no doubt about that. However, so are many of the things we drivers have to pay for. Ten bucks for a shower and $12 for a buffet are minor compared to paying $30 to cross a daggum bridge.
