Their list doesn't show which ones were former Travel Ports, Burns Bros. or Union 76. That leaves memory to know which ones were bought or changed over from Truckstops of America. Thanks

very small, next to a Days Inn, and had no restaurant. It's a Gulf-branded place now and the owners
are not that nice. I asked him about it and he just shrugged, acting like he didn't care.
Burns Brothers in Minden, Iowa. I was five when we stopped there and I saw the neatest
Navajo Express/Digby Trucking rig. The owner was so kind and I'll never forget the great time
I had. It now stands demolished with nothing but the sign posts. Exit 29 off I-680.buzzarddriver Thanks this.
More Union 76 locations my uncle and I thought of:
Benson, North Carolina (demolished); Burlington, North Carolina (demolished); Halifax,
North Carolina (rebuilt and called Oasis); Charlotte, North Carolina (trailer drop lot and QuikTrip);
Greensboro, North Carolina (demolished); Bartonsville, Pennsylvania (demolished); Clarion,
Pennsylvania (standing but not operating); Harrisburg, Pennsylvania (Flying J); North East,
Pennsylvania (now a truck repair shop); Smithton, Pennsylvania (Flying J); Columbia North,
South Carolina (T/A); Columbia West, South Carolina (demolished); Fair Play, South
Carolina (independent called Cherokee Run); Manning, South Carolina (T/A); Bristol, Virginia
(demolished); Raphine, Virginia (White's Petro); Richmond, Virginia (T/A); Wytheville,
Two in Maryland: Elkton (T/A) and Frederick (demolished). Frederick location was
somehow related to Bill's Truck Stop in Linwood, North Carolina but I have no idea how.
I did know Frederick was a favorite of many drivers and I've been told it was a bad day
in the trucking industry the day it closed to make room for a Costco.
You mentioned you wanted the Union 76's east of the MIssissippi, so here are
some 76 locations we could think of in Kentucky, Ohio, and Tennessee:

Lexington (standing but not operating), Morton's Gap (Pilot), Sonora (Pilot),
and Waddy (demolished)

Franklin (T/A), Greeneville (independent franchise T/A), Kingsport (demolished),

A few more in Florida: Haines City (demolished), Lakeland (demolished), Orlando

TAs in Troutdale, Or and Ft Bridger, Wy were Burns Brothers. There were 76s in Blythe, Ca, Tuscon, Az one exit east of the TTT, Sacramento, Ca (49er now), Sparks, Nv (Sierra Sids TA), Buttonwillow, Ca (TA), Amarillo (where the TA is now but torn down and rebuilt), Okie City (West TA), Rockwall, Tx (where the TA is now but torn down and rebuilt), Sweetwater, Tx TA, on the east side of Meridian, Ms TA, and I think the Redding TA and Tooele, Ut were 76s too.
