Most remote place you've ever stayed

    Many of us have been to Starkvegas, Stillwater, Pullman and other remote places as part of our jobs. But where's the most BFE place you've ever stayed in a hotel/motel room? (Not camping, etc.)

    For me, a choice between Carrington, N.D., and John Day, Ore. Both in the middle of nowhere. But both were surprisingly nice little motels, for about $25 each night.

    We used to drive to Phoenix from Missouri and stay in Tucumcari, NM after the first day of driving. I don't remember much being around it, but I remember my dad telling us some cheesy story about how the city was named.

    So many places to list, here are a few:

    • Ottawa, Illinois, at a shit-ass motel with pubic hairs on the sheets; a buddy and I followed the Dead for a few months in '93 and '94, and were blessed to be at the last show ever at Soldier Field

    • Anderson, Indiana, at a Motel 6, during a different Dead tour.

    • Dodge City, Kansas, for 5 days when my car broke down; Fort Scott, Kansas, when my car broke down 300 miles later; ain't nuttin' like the Bourbon County Fair, I tell'z ya.

    • Independence, Missouri, in a crack-whore motel, one night after watching a Royals baseball game, during a cross-country trip.

    • Some town in Texas I can't even remember, but I do remember it was a dry county.

    • Morrisville, Vermont, at a seedy motel, after a day-long drive.

    • Green River, Utah, after a day of driving from Vegas.

    • North Lima, Ohio, at the Scottish Inn, and after I went swimming in the pool I was sick for 5 days; never, ever go swimming in a Scottish Inn swimming pool.

    • Santa Rosa, New Mexico, at a different Scottish Inn, only cleaner, and there was a cute Indian girl who worked the front desk.

    • Blythe, California, after a day of driving. The waitress at Denny's looked exactly like a girl I dated in Vermont.
