Nightly Ramble: The “Yet Another TruckStop” Edition

ramble-truckstop3 [1]Welcome, one and all to the most intense nightly read anywhere on the sphere… The BitsBlog Nightly Ramble.

This is the “Yet Another Truck Stop” Edition

That’s two Truck Stops in as many weeks, I know. I’m not sure what it is about old truck stops I find so appealing.  I certainly like to travel, so that’s certainly part of it.  Just as certainly, there’s always been a part of me that loves those trucks, and the idea of 400 miles between bathrooms. I could use pics of the newer truck stop chains to take off on, I suppose. TSA, Flying J, Husky, and so on… but there’s something special about the small independent operators. A different, perhaps friendlier flavor to them.  And, frankly, they’re a piece of Americana that’s slipping away from us.
