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.

Somewhere in eastern Washington State, near an Airforce base 20 years ago. We were buzzed and played with by a couple Jetfighters along the highway, just after this station.




Somewhere in Texas, LOL
