To the box:
** This box is about 50 miles east of Gila Bend. And as their billboard says, it's a great place to get off. :D
** Take I-8 east- or westbound and take the Dateland exit. (Exit #67)
** Go into the gift shop parking lot and find the sign at the back that says "SEMI TRUCK PARKING" with an arrow pointing to the right. (It's a red sign with white lettering.)
** Your sweet treat is at the base of the light post under the lip.
While you are here try one of the world famous date shakes!! :) They kind of taste like pumpkin pie... almost. :) I'm not a fan of dates, usually, unless the guy pays and treats me like a lady, but these are good!! :)
Enjoy and happy hunting!! :)
Yours in 'boxing,
