Nice looking facilities, but... wonder why they chose that color for their towels? Sorry!

Hey thanks for that Ricky! That's the kind of thing that people would naturally wonder about but I never really think of it because I was out there for so many years.

Probably because Flying J's colors are something like puke orange and nasty brown. Don't quote me on that - I'm not sure if those are the scientific names for their colors. Those are just my impression of them. They're awful.

Try out the showers at a TA. Lots of them have paintings on the wall and flower vases on the counter. Makes you feel right at home.

I hope that's the reason ... and not what came to my mind smile.gif

Evenings are the worst by far. Anytime between like dinnertime and 9:00 pm is the busiest. Any other time you normally won't have to wait unless something wrong with the place's facilities.
