Sounds like a night I spent once where diesel fumes kept kicking off my propane detector.
In moderate weather, I always stay at Flying J when I can. After a long day of driving, I don't mind truck noise, bright lights, or "Shower number 46 is now ready, Shower number 46 is now ready". I always feel safe at Flying Js and I make a point of eating there and filling up my tank in return for theuir hospitality.
