    Actually, you can park in vail. I've done it in the past. There's a rest area there. Google it.

    That rest area is on top of that pass, they do have a separate truck parking on both sides of the road, it will be cool and if you brought plenty of supplies you can do some hiking up there.

    The hotel across the street from the TA also has a bar, so if your into drinking on your 34 you've got options lol. I know that TA is packed a lot so I would probably make sure to reserve a spot. I'm sure with the Pilot in Denver being demolished it's even more packed now. I haven't been that way in a couple years.

    You got me on that one. I don't run the Denver area often. Normally if I do end up in that area I stop at Johnsons Corner on I-25 between denver and ft Collins.

    Still there, great food. Standard bar food and Viet Namese, both are good.

    Don't go to the T/A in Denver.

    NOT IN DENVER!!!

    It's in wheat ridge, 5 or 6 miles above Denver on 70
