    Looks like it's going to have a huge parking lot. Drivers will probably be too scared to park there.
     
  2. why would they be scared they used to have the port of entry on i-84 with the old truck stop in redneck bar was a cool place to hang out back in the day after you got your Port of entry done you went over there and shut it down for the night...90 guys used to like to hang out there same if you took the Old 97 coming up out of Klamath falls he went in the Molly's same kind of thing...
    course that was old school Trucking back in the day I don't know what these kids do nowadays all they want is a fuel stop and Subway

    The abandoned TS right there didn't lend them a clue? Maybe it was "too" close. :)

    The owners of the old truckstop got themselves in a bind over water. The article I read said they were using an Ag well to avoid paying for residential water use or something to that effect. It used to be a decent stop before it started getting run into the ground.

    I wonder if they’re not looking at existing fuel stops that could be remodeled and such.

    If they are all TA franchises, that might limit where they will be built to avoid scavenging business from other corp TA's.

    Used to hang out in Mollys,too.

    Sheridan has a cute little functional truckstop next to the POE up there. Virtually the same property.

    That little truckstop had a happy staff, even in the dead of winter. I don't know where they got that from...
     
    Lite bug Thanks this.
