Going West on I-90 through South Dakota there were hundreds of billboards every other mile advertising five cent coffee at this place called “Wall Drug”. This of course sparked my interest and I was getting tired of driving anyways so I stopped at exit 109 in Wall, South Dakota.

Well sure enough, I found the place, which was like a scene you would see in a Western. I parked in front of the drugstore, and my owners mosied on in to find the famous 5 cent coffee. The people inside were very friendly and helpful although the coffee was self-serve on an honor policy. Also advertised was free ice water but since we were all just stuck in a blizzard for 2 days, the coffee was much more appealing. When my owners returned they surprised me with a souvenir bumper sticker which was free per each constomer. They had several too choose from but the one shown below was the what they brought me. Green goes great with white and it really brings out the color of my headlights.

Grandpa “Dobby” (Virgil) Hansen who painted many of the original Wall Drug bill boards would have loved your site. He loved his volvos, even converting one to carry ladders and paint for his work. 🙂
