Chinese Wisdom from Gallup Nm

Boy oh Boy what a ride back from Alb Nm today. The Weather was fine traffic was light my Mpg in the Semi hit a new high since I drove back with an empty Trailer. In Gallup Nm I stopped because of Dot Regulations.....

I had 2 Hours to kill......... Chinese Food my Brain told me.....

Found my old Dive Chinese Joint after a 3 Block walk.....realizing I smoke too much .......

I made it to the Front Door walked in huffing and buffing like a magic Dragoon with an Inhailer......

The usual I coughed out......... and hurry the Clock is running......

Got my To go Order in no Time ....... took a Cab back to the Truck.....

Hell I hate cold Chinese Food and my Dot Break was up.

I set the Food on the Dash of my Semi floated thru all the Gears and enjoyed my Bowl of Number 5 at 70MPH going WB on I 40 towards Flagstaff.

Yes I can do that eating China Food at 70 MPH I am a CDL Holder ... aka professional Driver........

At MM 236 east of Winslow my Gut told me favorite Dive Joint got a new Owner.........

I made it thru Winslow ...... hit the high Road on the 40 WB....... aka no Rest Stop no Bushes just a lot of open Road and some Dust Devils.....

Like an good old School Trucker I knew about that a Construction Zone is coming up......... Just 12 more Miles.... 10 8 6 5 4 3 2 1.......

I set my Flashers listing to the Truckers on the CB Radio behind me while I am slowing down in a Construction Zone.....

Well I had a good Reason....... I moved on to the Side reached for Toilet Paper and my Sharpie from the Overhead Box dodged 2 Lanes of Traffic .....

here it was the Johnny on the Spot.........

Boy that little Out House in the Middle off I 40 was an Oasis .......

NO only did it have awesome Bath Room Graffiti the Toilet Paper was missing too....

While I was sitting there I had a Chance to read all the Graffiti had a good Laugh ...... on the Way out ......

I wrote on the Inside of the Door the following........

The Berliner..... traveled plenty of Roads in Europe North Africa but by far this is the best Place in the World when you stop for Chinese Food in Gallup NM. Dated it dodged the Traffic again and rolled back to Phoenix.....

So here is my Travel Tip ..... If you like Chinese Food from Gallup NM make sure to have a Gps with rolling Construction Zones built in.....

Honestly I do not know if Mercedes will offer that or not. A Michelin Map might help..... but be sure to have a Sharpie and plenty of Toilet Paper....

if you are in a hurry to get from Point A to B do not stop in Gallup...........

I think next Week I am going for the Seafood in Gallup since they got Construction all Summer long west of Winslow to Flagstaff.......

yep paving takes a while and the back up is Miles long...... what better Way to enjoy Arizona ....... than in the middle of I 40....... reading some good Graffiti and watch the traffic go by.............


my Chinese Cookie was full of Wisdom..... it said.......

Owning fewer things leads to great happiness.......
