St. George

On our drive back from St. George Derek and I were forced to spend our first night in a seedy Fillmore of all places.

OK having a natural gas car has been amazing for us so far. When we first bought the car we were warned that finding fill up stations can be a bit of a hassle but we had yet to have any issues with it. On our last drive to St. George we made it there and back with no problems and with a total of $10 spent on gas and $22 on gas station treats. So, we decided to venture back down south for a second trip and on our way back we stopped in Fillmore at our natural gas pump and realized that the gas station was closed. It was 12:15 p.m and the station closed at 12:00 p.m - come on! There was no credit card payment method at the pump and our gas light was on so we knew we were spending the night, either in the car-which Derek suggested- or at the Comfort Inn that was right next to us. However, we were both up for a bit of an adventure and I wanted one that consisted of a bed, so we drove into Fillmore to support the local Motel.

No worries we slept in comfort mixed with dirt but we had a fridge and a Microwave! Other than me forbidding Derek to walk on the floor without shoes on it felt quite homey and we considered the Motels wonderful month long rent option before realizing we wanted to be home for the Holidays.

Don't forget if you ever traveling through that there is always a place to stay in Fillmore! We reccomend room #2.
