    it is like a tornado riped through the place and for some odd reason everynight it smells like a gang of skunks start spraying at the same time

    It's tight, but not impossible and some spots take some work to get into. The shower and bathroom are combined, but unlike Iron Mountain there are 2 instead of just one. There is a small driver's room with a table and a couple of chairs. The t.v. only receives the public digital channels. There are places that will deliver food. Make sure you do not pass it since there are no turn arounds and the entrance is hidden. It is bigger and better than either of the last 2 places they have had in the area. They don't have mechanics yet, but there is a garage that they could start doing work. They could also install fuel pumps, but haven't to this point.
     
    Jtrain9891 Thanks this.

    Haha i lived in dallas for a few months while i was going to school. It wasn't to bad but I like the country a lot more, could just be because i lived in a bad part of oakcliff lol. Only moving back there for my girlfriend while shes in school, then hopefully back to the middle of nowhere =P

    Cities aren't really my cup of tea either. I like astronomy which works much better in the country than light polluted urban areas.
