Cheeseburger in Paradise

My theory on eating at places on the road is if it ain't broke, don't fix it. I guess I'm like the old time sailor man who eats the same thing again and again. :)

Milk Crate

That milk crate is good to carry stuff in and to set a wheel/tire in when you have to change on the road. A milk crate is useful like duct tape. Don't swap it out for a fancy top case.
