The clue really isn't in the title.
Apart from being in the arse-end of nowhere, I mean this was a proper one-horse town. I was listening to the song about South Park from the intro to the film.
The campsite was no mreo than 100 yards from the Freeway, and it seemed like all there was in the middle of fields as far as the eye could see, was a diner. It was a proper truck-stop and seemed like such a stereotype, but they still exist.
After 6 hours (probably more) travelling, I would have rather stayed somewhere nicer than this, it was dirty, just very rustic.
The sound of traffic was awful, all the lorries going past sounded like Tie-Fighters from Star Wars, I kept thinking that the Empire was invading.
The other thing about it, was as we sat in the diner for tea (because we thought there wasn't a cat in hell's chance of there being a supermarket), it was filled with the usual band of no-hopers, but it seemed like it was one of those places that is stuck in a rut and quite happy about it thank you.
I swear the channel on the TV should have been called Redneck TV, it was having major stories of 'Global warming is a lie', 'Not being a Christian will send you to hell' and generally bad-mouthing Barack Obama.
