Truckin' To The Truck Inn

The Truck Inn was located in Fernley, Nevada at Exit 48 on Interstate 80. This Freightliner cabover-in-the-sky marks the spot where it stood.

Operating from 1984 to June 2008, it was your quintessential truck stop - breakfast 24 hours a day, horseshoe-shaped counter lined with solo drivers. They offered live gaming from 1990 to 1998, and then slots only from 1998 until they closed. They leveled the building after it closed. All that remains is their giant parking lot.

Which is where we were last night to watch the fireworks show.
