    Anyone stop by the Pasco Broadway J lately? I haven't been up there for a couple
    years, but according to Google Maps street view, it still looks like a uranium bomb
    hit it several years ago. I say someone should start a fundraiser to tear that stupid
    eyesore down! Even the King City Truck Stop next door looks better!

    There’s a few pilot and flying J’sthat are so bad it’ll take an hour to get fuel and get out of them. I am duly marking them down as I stumble upon them so As never to stop at these places again. You know the type of pilot I’m talking about. You turn in and then you’re trapped and you can’t get turned back around and you can’t get fuel and you can’t get out. Two small property for what they’re trying to do in there. That’s usually the cause.

    Whoever owns it obviously doesn't care worth a hoot and should be arrested for
    taking advantage of drivers' money.

    The ones in Drums, Pennsylvania and Mahwah, New Jersey come to mind. There are even some
    Pilots in Tennessee that are only for four-wheelers, not trucks. Little more than C-stores with gas
    pumps. Of course, there are no signs saying this, so once you get in there and have no room to
    back out, it's your loss, according to them.

    The first time I stopped there was the last time, except for scaling once or twice. It's always full when I need a spot anyway. No worries thought, I've now got a place to park in my back pocket when needed that is 100 percent available any time of day or night and no one bothers me.

    It’s always been a dump and so has the place next door. I don’t follow your claim of taking advantage of driver’s money, as you put it, it’s fairly easy to drive right past the exit and keep on going.

    I love how many cars come into the one at Atalissa, Iowa. Circle around a few times and then leave when they realize there’s no gas, just diesel. Lol
