I have to give Flying J in Caldwell Idaho credit for doing a good job with their deli. I had just finished getting my fuel reciept and decided to order a broasted chicken for just under ten bux which comes with two sides out of the hot case. I'm trying to stay away from starchy foods. All the sides in the hot case were loaded with starch. Food like corn on the cob, mac with cheese, rice, deep fried spring rolls and wantons, (you get the picture). I was just about to leave hungry, when the lady behind the counter said, "you can also pick your two sides from the cold case down below." Boy did that open up the possibilities (and my eyes). For less than $10.00 I got half a chicken with gravy, a large green and crisp chef salad, and a big container of cool and firm grapes. Yeah, a delicious healthy meal at a truck stop for less than ten dollars. Will miracles never cease?
So next time you're driving by Caldwell Idaho driver and you're feeling hungry for a filling AND low carb meal check out the Flying J. I think it's exit 29 on I-84.
Over three years and more than a thousand dollars saved. Hundreds of plastic water bottles that wont be cluttering land fills and the environment, and I'm most likely a lot more healthy from not drinking out of the toxic plastic water bottles that truckstops try and sell me. I thought I'd snap this shot when I stopped at a roadside spring on highway 200 between Paradise and St Regis Montana. The water is sweet, good, and free of charge.
This low carb appetizer is called Naruto. It's Salmon, Tuna, avocado, caviar, with a ginger sauce wrapped in fresh cucumber. It's Oh so refreshing. The restaurant is called The Family Garden Japanese Chinese Cuisine and it's located in Richland Wa at The Uptown Shopping Center.
If you're in the mood for a tasty bowl of Thom Kha Gai or some Schezuan Beef and you're driving on I 90 through Deer Lodge Montana. Take the first exit entering town headed east (the same exit as Macdonalds). They have room for a couple big rigs behind the place. And a truck stop with loads of parking across the street.
but it's always been hard to find Tie Dye shirts in larger sizes so a while back I got a wild hair and decided to start making my own Tie Dye Trucker Shirts. But after one night of dying (no pun intended) My wife Terrie stepped in and saved me from myself and made some pretty awesome shirts. Mine were O.k. But I had to face the fact that Terries Tie Dye shirts (and some dresses she made) just look awesome.
The Shirt above Terrie made for me and we call it the "Dream Catcher"
My original plan was based around those orange and red safety shirts that a lot of places are requiring us to wear these days Heres a batch Le Artist Terrie made.
anyone that would like a Tie Dye Trucker Safety Shirt hand made by Terrie click Here and Stay tuned for whatever we think of next!!!
You can order one here
Standing in line at the truckstop I noticed a guy buying one of those cheap keychain tools they sell for impulse spenders. I told him "I've never had any luck with those lasting long enough to make them worth the money." He laughed and said "I had my last one for over a year." Turns out he's one of the mechanics that works at the shop next door. That was enough for me I told the lady at the counter I wanted one too. Turns out the mechanic got the last one. I remembered the name of the company though. They're called Swiss Tech. While ordering myself one thought I'd post a link to Amazon where I bought mine.
