Went to pick an old abandoned farm today, and found the last remaining Supertest station in London, Ontario. I wanted to take a picture of the historical plaque....but some loser had stolen it!! It reminds me of the cottage style Phillips stations I saw on Route 66. Dave

How about a free service station? You just have to move it.

Hey, 60 Wayne...what are you doing in Montana??? I should recognize the station to be moved as that is a Butte phone number, but I am not recognizing it? Is that in Whitehall, MT???

Also, the Beacon Tire Store is inmy old hometown of Polson, MT. It was a Mobil oil station owned by a good friend's father, back in the day. There was a "treasure trove" (no exageration) of Mobil signs and Pegasuses taken out of that station after it closed. Wish I had collected back then. If you notice at the top of the building you see a white light. Hence the name Beacon...before radios, etc it was the light they would turn on to notify the police that there was an emergency somewhere. Old school bat-signal.

I flew from Boston to Denver. Then drove close to 40000 miles in two weeks threw CO., ID, MT., WY, SD, back to Denver then flew back to Boston for a day. Installed a hot water heater then got on a plane and went to Puerto Rico for a week. Back to Boston , a little work then back to Va. Late June threw early August and finally having some time to post the pictures I took. Had a great time seeing several of the National Parks and many adventures.

Ran up on this the other month. Swerved to miss some fallen rocks in the road but the pickup truck behind me hit one and lost a tire. The driver made it to this place. I asked the older women to pull to a flat spot near the Texaco signs and I would change the tire for her.

What a trip, she was drunk and had two dogs and a pistol on the seat. I wanted to do my good deed for the day and get away from this lady. 95 degrees. I was lucky I didn't get crushed, when I put the truck off the jack it started to roll. The lady had not put it in park before she got out. I was sitting on my butt holding onto the truck and yelling to my sister to jump in and put it in park.

The lady wanted to go another few hundred miles but I told her to go to the next town, spend the night and get a new rim and spare before going on. I wanted to make sure that I was not behind this drunk and took off.

I would have liked to have met the owner of this property but I was glad to get out of there with a few pictures and all my limbs. Traveling can be a real adventure, you never know what you will see or what can happen. I was pulled over buy a nice police officer a few hours later coming into MT. at 36 miles per hour. Did not even know. I was already stopped at a gas station and my sister was out the car headed to the restroom when I saw the lights. Just a pleasant warning to slow down.

I have to write a note on the problems OG has cost me while on the road. I am a no nonsense driver, driving from A-Z oblivious to all but the road and wheels around and in front of me. And I have a big bladder so I don't have to stop for 4 hours if I want! LOL. But now I have a swivel neck as I look at old buildings to see if they used to be gas stations. Yes, well then do the buildings have old pumps, old station lights, signs on poles, repurposed signs in frames on poles? Today we went out off our way to go to Ellensburg to eat the great burgers and see the signs and memorabilia at the Red Horse Drive Inn. That cost me an hour of my time. In the past I would've flown right by and missed all the sights. Pictures to follow.

Check out the non-petro found along the way as well and you will learn to live with a sore neck.
