    I believe that most the major truck stops north of Detroit have been closed. There are a few after you get north of Flint, But 10 years ago there were a lot more. I am about 60 miles north of Detroit. Just out of the range of the bullets ;)

    Alot of the old truckstops are gone to over priced and crowded fast food joints, The trucking co. I start driving for next week only operates east of the Miss. river so I will be in Detroit often
