Default Local Hobby Shops

Okay guys and gals I need a little help here. I drive truck and enjoy R/C. I carry a Savage SS with me on the road. My problem is finding Hobby shops that are truck accessible. I find myself in need of fuel and/or parts occasionally. I'm thinking with your help we could make a site with a bit of info for others like myself. Here are some of the things to look for when you visit your LHS next time. 1. easy access from the interstate. 2. able to get 80' of truck and trailer into. Or close to a truckstop so I can drop my trailer and bobtail into it. (To park my bobtail I need 2 fullsize car stalls end to end). Or 3. a place close to a large shopping mall where I can park and walk to. Thanks for your help.

Check the hobbytown usa directory. I know there are a few in the midwest that are close to the interstates some located in malls with large lots. Roll on

Most r/c magazines have a Hobby Shop Listing section in them... That's always a good source, or try the phone book.
