February 1, 2014: Bypassed

They lined the two-lanes that brought on the automobile age.  Every little town bisected by a US 10, or 2, or even a 66 had a diner or two.  When "US" was replaced with the single letter "I" the little towns were bypassed, and with them their diners.  A few survived, most were handed the same fate as the Sportsman Diner in Easton, Washington.

I don't do Interstates... people are wary and everybody is in too big a hurry. The Amish have the right idea, they use horse and buggy to slow life down, it's not about electricity.
