Gas Station Uniqueness IV: Tooth Decay

Once again I return to pummel an equid carcass. See? Just use 10 cent words and no one notices all I do is go to gas stations. Either way here we go again. Strap in this one has been a long time coming and it’s absolutely riddled with gas station goodness. First stop: Pretty big and hard to miss from the highway, this epic convenience … Continue reading Gas Station Uniqueness IV: Tooth Decay

Gas Station Uniqueness Part III: Return To The Restroom!

Here we are again, yet another trip to gas station nirvana. Throughout my travels I stop at many “Quik Shops”, “GAS-N-GOs”, “Chicken Men”, and so forth. Most of the time these places are fairly “cookie-cutter” with very few surprises. “Oh look another 7-11….”, But sometimes, SOMETIMES, the Gods of Randomness shine on me and place insanely unique gems along the road. This series of posts are … Continue reading Gas Station Uniqueness Part III: Return To The Restroom!

However, if some of these wounded warriors band together they can also … Continue reading Missed Chances (The Forgotten)

Gas Station Uniqueness

I have traveled to several states around the country in the South and the Midwest as well as the East coast. And in those travels (aside from all the general prettiness of the landmarks and other fantastic sites that are available to be taken in), there are places that seem overlooked or disregarded. These poor dregs are the red-headed stepchildren (so-to-speak) of the tourist trade. … Continue reading Gas Station Uniqueness

Travel Diary #2953: Ames, Iowa!

There isn’t much to say about Ames, Iowa…Except, that towns that are sleepy, sparse, and quaint often yield the fullest harvests. A stuck-up traveler might overlook some of the more hidden gems in a secluded little area like this, in favor of a chocolate “shoppe” or an overpriced craft store consisting of “found art” or even worse abstract expressionist paintings *shudders*. My first stop was … Continue reading Travel Diary #2953: Ames, Iowa!
