Good Bye, Flying J

It wasn't good until yesterday, but we are finally repaired and out of the Flying J parking lot. It hasn't been grand and we hope we don't return soon, but thanks for the space.

We spent 12 days, 11 nights in the Flying J parking lot and we are delighted to be away from the noise of trucks and the crowded parking, the smell of rubber and exhaust, the oily pavement. The Holbrook KOA looks absolutely pristine and spacious by comparison.

A Goodyear commercial truck shop is not the ideal location to have a 5th wheel RV repaired but they eventually got the job done and everyone there was very friendly and pleasant. But we really won't miss them or the location. It feels so good to be back on the road!


  1. After 11 nights at a Flying J, even I might be happy for a KOA

    1. Yes, you would. The view and ambiance are really lacking when boondocking in a Flying J.

  3. So glad to hear you are on the road again.. Safe travels!

  4. Finally! You were very patient, but I guess there was no choice. I'm with Barbara, a KOA would be heaven after that many days in a truck stop!

  5. Glad to hear you're back on the road. I'm sure almost any campground would look good after spending that long at a truck stop. Safe travels.
