        Those trailers are combat helicopter simulators.They can link them up to deployed service men and women to fly wing anywhere in the world to get the layout of the land your looking at around 25 mill

              There is a Mexican restaurant there that I love. I'll stop for a meal if I pass through again, can't remember the name. But it wouldn't be anything like what you get down in Texas.

              Holy crap. I just saw this. You may be better at one of the truck stops if you wish. 2 are east on Hwy 20 at the Elk Run Heights exit and there is a new Loves just west of where you are at the Hwy 63 exit. Both are just a few miles from where you are.

                Probably Chilitos. Just off of highway 20 at Hwy 21 exit. Right in front of Lowes where BD is parked at.

                Calros O'Kelleys, just down the road. We looked up Mexican restaurant and got so many, we just went for the closest thing off the road. Which is best?

                I haven't been to Carlos for a long time. Chilitos is locally owned and very good. You'll have to give it a try.
