    And while we're on the subject of nasty J's, forget Hardin, Montana; Belgrade, Montana; or Ellensburg, Washington. All you need is one word: Pasco. (Shudders). I'll bet that thing hasn't been remodeled since F.D.R. was in office.

    But anyway, back to the Kansas City J on Front Street/Corrington Avenue...so sad that the crime in that area makes an otherwise
    good location so terrible. The parking is decent and in fact, there are only about 30 reserved spots, so most of it is still free. The staff
    seems nice most of the time as well, with the exception of the security guards in the lot. Perhaps that's why the crime is so
    bad...security lets them get away with it! Grrrrr!

    You're right Bthomann,
    I haven't been to that one and not many in the 4 NW 6 states. Wish I could have helped.

    PS- I finally uploaded my new avatar of my Ram and 5th Wheel that we travel in during the summer.

    The J at Front St hasn't changed much during my career that started in early to mid 90's. It is #### on a spread to even get fuel there.

    Your truck and trailer duo look so awesome! What a joy to see the great sights of this beautiful
    country. If you ever plan to come to Colorado sometime, let me know when!

    Yeah, the building definitely has seen better days. I wish they would clean up the area a bit, but I
    realize that's out of Flying J's hands somewhat. The city needs to get on the ball.

    Is there ever any parking available at that location?
    It seems that all the time I do try to find a parking spot at that location that I can't find one..

    There is, but you have to get there absurdly early, like around 4 in the afternoon. Otherwise, it's best to reserve a spot. I think they have around 30 available.

    We used to call that location a "Junior" which was around as far back as the late 70's. "Junior " meaning basically fuel and sodas. No restaurant. There's a "junior" Petro also somewhere in Pa. if I remember correctly.

    Thanks! Don't know about any in Pennsylvania, but there is a smaller-scale Petro in Kingston Springs, Tennessee outside of Nashville. And Flying J did have a couple "express" locations. Richfield and Snowville, Utah both come to mind, as does Thousand Palms, California.
