After passing through Mena, AK you will see this station just before Route 88 continues into the mountains which takes you on a nice rolling ride.

They used to keep a bear in a cage at this gas station in Mitchell, Oregon. The man in the hat has since retired the bear to his ranch.

The service sucked

I just hate these self-service stations at times.
The price on the old mechanical pumps was $2.10 a gallon.
Ride safe all, and ATGATT please.

Damn! Now that's a ride. Is there a link to a ride report? Love to see it.

Hey, this gas station looks familiar:


It is past Oden heading West on Arkansas 88 in Mena. Read more about our little sidecar trip here: http://www.sidecar.com/mbbs22/forums...osts=7&start=1

I stand corrected. It was Mena, not Oden where you find this old station. Route 88 is a nice ride. Great pics of Tommy and Sheena. Thanks!

It's a little easier for us "local" folks to keep with the towns along the way; we try to visit the area at least once a year.

I hope you had the opportunity to visit Tommy and Sheena, and his little low-budget wildlife rescue/rehab center. Tommy is gracious host (if he has time). It's a shame he has not yet secured a couple of corporate foundations to sponsor his feed costs or specific capital improvements.
