    I was in that shop a month ago, Rich. Very nice shop, but a much different atmosphere inside than what you see on TV. There's a divider inside to direct tourist traffic in and out, a bit like at a bank. There's a lot of cool stuff in there, although much of the off-camera business seems to be T-Shirt and souvenir sales now. Still fun though.

    edit: Oh ya Pete, if you happen make it there, they have a very nice antique brass refractor set up near the back of the store that's worth a peek.

    Pete, If you are driveing there, Use the Love's Truck Stops, Your woman folk will like that they have the cleanest bathrooms you will find on the road. Plus their stores are pretty well stocked for any need... Their signs are yellow and red pretty easy to spot. Have fun and be safe.....
