Wife was cleaning out our closet and look what she found. Still fits so I might have to wear it again along with 2 hats from this stop.  Stopped there many times in the 1980's.

Back in the day she did not like me wearing my hat or shirts when we were together.  Now at our age she has mellowed out and is used to my quirks. ;)

So, from time to time I'd take my wife along when I was an O/O. On this particular trip we were head north out of the Bay Area. Saw the ARCO truck stop sign, and it was time for dinner. This had to have been mid year 1974. The wife and I got out and headed into the restaurant, sat down and waited for the waitress. I'd noticed that they had micro-mini skirts on as part of the "uniform." Ordered up then got our food, our waitress was busing a table. All of a sudden my wife says in a hushed voice; "look at that." I said look at what? "There she said" following here stealth finger point, caught the waitress leaned over the next table stretching to fill the salt and pepper shakers. On the seat of her panties was a "Keep on Trucking" patch!

Wow! Then my wife gave me the dickens for looking! Sometimes you just can't win...<LOL>

Here are I my two hats that came out of the back of the same closet.  I am sure there are many a story from there. I know that I always wash up good and had clean cloths on.  Did not not want to look like I lived in the truck for a month.

I have a couple of Aladero decals floating around here, somewhere. I also have one on a hardhat. Their closing was the beginning of my loathing of Pilot.

Used to stop there a lot when I drove for General Cable who had a plant in Colusa CA (west of Williams on CA 20).  CHP guys used to stop there too.
