I used to live in a suburb of Atlanta called REX so I am familiar with those parts... two summers ago I was coming the other way and rode right past the Fontana village on NC 28 and just stuck with it until I was almost in Commerce. As I recall that route along NC 28 was a good ride... I was planning on trying to ride in that way this summer.

I am jonsin' for my eastern digs in a bad way...

Yeah, NC 28 is a pretty awesome ride... Have ridden it a few times...
Think we'll be coming in on TN 129 - actually pretty much the shortest route for me... (he-he )
A= Georgetown, TN
B= Fontana Village

The old small private owned 76 truckstop at Adairsville exit had THEE BEST breakfast in the United States.Blytheville Ark private owned 76 ran a close 2nd.

Are there still anymore 76 truck stops? Even 76 gas stations? I stopped at allot of the 76 truckstops back in the 80's maybe in real early 90's also, but I don't think I seen one in last 20 years or so!

I guess money talks n BS walks..Never would have believe'd TA would have taken over.But then again,76 got hooked up with Napcar and sold racin' fuel for quite a while.I'm sure the overhead is a LOT less.

No wonder the Petro stops I used to like turned to crap also!
I have not seen a good Iron Skillet restaurant at a Petro for a couple years I guess, now just crappy fast food junk at many!

In the late 70's, 80's 90's the 76's, TSA, Petro, were my 3 main stops depending what food I wanted and what was where I wanted to stop. All three were good back then. TA and Petro aren't worth a hoot today! Maybe if you don't know any better they might seem "ok" but for those of us that knew what they once WERE, today they are nothing!
