This was a shocker for me this week. It isn't a new truck stop, they simply bought out the Kelly's truck stop at Exit 5. I stop at this truck stop occasionally on my weekly trip to Georgia, and this week, on my way out, it was Kelly's, and on my way back, the Kelly's sign was covered up with a sign that said T/A.

T/A seems to do this quite a bit. I guess it is cheaper than actually buying the land and building a new place.

That is for sure. The hole at the exit of the T/A in Terrell, Texas just keeps getting bigger and deeper. I followed a truck out of there last week, and it took him three attempts to cross it. Drive axles went in it and he just sit their spinning while trying to move forward.
