Flying J in Warrenton, MO Truck Stop Review

Not my favorite Flying J store, though I find myself stopping here frequently due to fuel prices. This place is dirty, stinky, cramped and has a lot of shady people hanging around who want money or a ride.

Wings America Flying J in Avoca, IA Truck Stop Review

Wings America offers exceptionally clean showers, plenty of food options. None of us want to break down on the road, but if I had to choose where a breakdown would happen, Wings America would be one of my top choices in the Plains States.

Little America Flagstaff Arizona Truck Stop Review

An excellent place to stay overnight or longer. I was impressed and will be back next time through. If the parking lot were larger or had painted lines, this would be a full 5-star place but it’s still one of the highest rated stops I’ve seen. Highly recommended!

Flying J in Fort Stockton, TX Truck Stop Review

While the Flying J in Fort Stockton is a newer store, it doesn’t appear to be maintained very well. This place is in a great location for a truck stop and has great potential, if they can clean it up.

TA New Braunfels, TX Truck Stop Review

The San Antonio area in Texas is gorgeous, in my opinion, but like most of the metro areas down here, it can be hard to find truck parking.

TA Seattle East in North Bend, Washington Truck Stop Review

The Pacific Northwest is known for quite a few things, not the least of which are traffic & rain. It’s a gorgeous area & after a week of running hard, I found myself needing to sit for a 34-hour restart. Knowing how limited truck parking is in the Seattle metro area, I opted to drive east on I-90 to North Bend and hang out here.

Road Ranger Pilot in Springfield, Illinois Review
I’ve been to some really nice, albeit small, Road Ranger locations in the midwest. The one off Interstate 55 in southern Springfield, Illinois may be the smallest I’ve seen and really isn’t my favorite. Let’s start with kudos for fresh pizza in the hot deli. And a clean parking... Read more
Pilot Travel Center in Muskogee, Oklahoma Review
Bosselman Travel Center in Grand Island, NE Truck Stop Review

Most the time we just want to fuel, park, shower & sleep. Bosselman has us covered there and personally, I have no qualms about driving a mile off the beaten path to pull in to this truck stop for that.
