The flashing sign outside the Mount Sidney Rest Areas tells the tale - they close July 21. One more week to visit your favorite rest area.
Any favorite rest stop memories? In December 1993, my fiancee and I stopped there after visiting my parents for Christmas. I picked up the USA Today baseball publication, and found the Braves would be in San Francisco while we were on our honeymoon. The Braves were her favorite team, so that was a good thing.
Now, when these stops close, where are the truckers going to sleep overnight? I haven't seen any discussion of that topic. They aren't going to keep on driving all hours, so they'll stop somewhere. Where, and will it be safe?
