The idea of putting a stop in Geode State park is, on its face, a good one.
The execution was tragic and I really felt bad for the vendor who was selling the rib eyes and lemonade.
They said they had been slammed all day, ran out of food and had to have a DNR truck escort the owner of the stand out of the park to resupply and then they were still out of food well before the stop closed.
If the Register is going to put a stop on the map and expect people to trust it to refuel, and its going to be in the middle of a stretch with very little in the way of decent-sized towns, it needs to be able to serve until its close time and have contingency plans that are workable if demand is higher than expected.
The Geode stop was fine, but it should not have been on the map as an official stop- it was pathetic and it was not the 2 or 3 vendors’ fault.
