This would be a stop if you are like my chauffeur and let the gas tank get so low that the car starts beeping.  Or, also like my chauffeur, you think kidneys are meant to "hold it" for two hours.

 

The one gas station offers enough green for a traveling dog to sniff around and stretch for a few minutes.  Behind the building the ground is strewn with litter.

 

But both my chauffeur and I would not be comfortable here after dark.  The gas station windows and doors were covered with steel bars and grates; we tend to think that if a shop owner takes such security measures it is for good reason.  My chauffeur said the inside, especially the restroom, was lacking in convenience and charm.

 

We were debating whether to make this an "avoid" exit but decided that some daylight traveling dogs would enjoy the remoteness.  Then we stopped at the "Mississippi Un-Welcome Center" a couple miles north.  We would recommend this exit over the northbound rest area at mile marker 239.

 

There is a Dollar General store on the side opposite the gas station -- just in case you need some general goods.

Dollar General


The Dollar General offers lots of green.  The traveling dog can park around the side for easier access.
