Just went and read the history on the website...typical...they built an empire in the 30's and 40's, sold it for big bucks to a corporation that used the name. Now they are rebuilding the empire, but they appear to be interlocked with truckstops and convience stores, few if any stand alone's. There is one along I-95 below Florence, SC that is like the Stuckey's of old...

Smile Stuck on Stuckey's

Well shucks, if that don't beat all! There's a Stuckey's Tribute website with the theme song and a 1960s flashback family road trip to Stuckey's... http://www.stuckonstuckeys.com/

the virtual tour was cute

Here's another cool one. One stop I would not want to miss is Wall Drug in South Dakota. You see the signs for miles. It's huge with attractions.

Back to the main topic a little bit...

I stopped at the Petro truck stop on I-285 in Atlanta on my way home this afternoon and the security guard refused to let me into the back area where the pumps are. She said as of 1/1/06 Petro no longer sold to non-commercial vehicles. She showed me a three page memo that had a one sentence paragraph on the last page that said no four wheeled vehicles except those driven by CDL drivers or operated by a certain company would be permitted into the pump area. Is that legal?

I guess I'll have to find a new place to buy diesel fuel when traveling!

Thumbs down Bummer about Petro--guess they don't need our business/money.

Bummer, we've now got a diesel tv wouldn't ya know it! You know on their website they claim to serve both both professional drivers and interstate motorists. So fewer rvers buying stuff at the truck stop, eating at the restaurant, etc. Guess they can afford to turn away customers huh?

Apparently it is just this one truckstop in Atlanta. It is on Hollowell Road one exit north of I-20 and I-285 on the west side of town. A little seedy if you know what I mean and only one of two Petros in Georgia that I am aware of.

Flying J not only has a dump but it has as good a price on propane as you will find. I buy on I-95 SC for less than $2.00 a gallon.

The Petro Truck Stop on I-81 in Scranton, Pennsylvania, offers 30 amp RV electric hook-ups for $10 ($9 with a Good Sam's card). They have about 20 hook-ups. We have stayed there 4 times in the last year. We wish all the truck stops had these.

Just about any truck stop. I like the truck lanes. Fast pumps plenty of room.

I know flying J has a website with locations.......but is there a comprehensive website for truck stops? We would love to know them when we take a trip.

We bought a book last year that gives complete info as it petains to RVers on every truck stop in the country. It is titled the 2006 RVer's Friend. We bought it at a truck stop last year.

It is usually in the RV lane. For which there is usally a line. Dumping on top of fueling would be frowned upon by the people waiting.
