When I say I'm 'clean and sober', it means I've showered and I'm headed to the liquor store.

Motels along rural highways always have a sleazy charm to them, similar to drive-in movie theaters. Hotels always make me think of clandestine rendezvous, extramarital affairs, prom dates losing their virginity. And there is always a corn field near by, or the occasional river that smells vaguely of rotting fish. Always on a two-lane highway, separated by a grassy median - a highway with two few cars to justify its size, though in its heyday it would be filled with excited children heading to grandma and grandpa's house for Christmas.

I haven't seen a motel sign like that since they tore down the Haven Motel outside of Whitewater, WI. I'm surprised that neon sign wasn't scrapped a long time ago.

I've looked at this thread several times and just now noticed the bottom of the sign: "ELECTRIC HEATED."

That's some top of the line biz.

Hey, I know this one. I've been wanting to post it for a while, but I'm NOT a photographer at all. You did a great job with it. Thank you.

The abandoned truck stop two doors down is awesome as well.

For future reference, there are several tasty looking locations up and down that stretch of road. I wish I had time to check them all out.
