The Poarch Tribe still exists. They have a reservation with a very nice truck stop on I65 there in south Alabam. Also, of course, a shiny new 20-story casino.
Over many thousands of miles of road, that was my favorite truck stop. Spent the night there hundreds of times.
I go there for lunch sometimes, I have a spread just west of there (65) on the Little River. When at my other spread north of there on the Burnt Corn I eat at the Shrimp Basket by Evergreen.
You live just west of the Poarch Truck Stop. How about that.
And you like to eat at the Shrimp Basket in Evergreen. Small world that is my second favorite truck stop, right across the interstate there at exit 96, Spirit Truck Stop.
I call those two "mom and pop" truck stops. All the drivers want to stay at the big chain places, Flying J and Pilot etc. I might pull in to that huge Loves at exit 93, and it is full, but I can go 3 miles to exit 96 and get a place to park at the mom n pop. I never ate at the Shrimp Basket, but they had pretty good food at the Spirit Truck Stop. Black mammies in there at 6am cooking sausage and scrambled eggs and grits. Southern cuisine, ya know.
