"A massive part of being in a touring band is visiting rest stops. Some are infamous and every punk band knows about 'em, like the Thing in Arizona or South of the Border in South Carolina. Safe to say, we spend a lot of time popping in and out of gas station rest stops, desperately searching for some sort of snack or magazine or anything to stimulate the senses on eight-plus hour drives. Snack options used to be prohibitively slim for vegetarians in rest stops but, in the more recent years, I've found that travelers and truckers are becoming more and more concerned with their health and weight. So there's a lot more granola and yogurt making appearances in these spots."
