Idaho, the only non toll plaza exit on the turnpike is for the Bazaar cattle pens. To my knowledge it's been the only "official" non-toll plaza off ramp since the turnpike was created. It's there for cattle trucks to on & off load cattle then get back on the turnpike. I don't know how often it's staffed if it ever is OR if there's another way to get off without getting back on to the turnpike. Martin, I don't know if all of the OK turnpikes are set up as crazy as the one we take (between 166 east of Stillwater and Tulsa) but having to stop every twenty miles to pay a toll is nuts. You just get up to speed and settled in and have to stop to pay a toll. At least ours is set up to where you can go the whole length if you wish and only stop to pay when you exit.

I made a error in what year the truck I was driving ,,it was my 1973 Chevy Pickup and it was during the year of 1974
I bought a new 1965 Chevy pickup also and got it mixed up with the new 1973 pickup in my story ..

Like you said that was probably for cattle ranchers where I got off or farmers ..I just seen it as maybe a way to get off and not have to go to end of the turnpike. I will never know if I would of made it to the end with being as low on gas as I was.

Last time I traveled by Denver on that toll road ,you had more than one toll booths to stop at before you got off of it

The rancher exit Tiny refers to doesn’t go anywhere except back onto the Interstate. Those ranchers must have had some serious political clout to get their own special accommodations. Tiny, that particular toll road is just plain nuts. The rest allow you to enter, drive to your destination or the end of the toll portion and pay when you exit. We got PikePasses for our vehicles 20 years ago and since Kansas and Texas recognize our passes we hardly ever have to go through a toll booth.

I had not paid a toll in years until 2 years ago coming back from HQ and went through WVa. surprised me. I see the notice on Google maps but paid little attention to it.

I do not remember much about where I got off ,,but I had no google maps or no way to ask Alexa then ,,so,, when I seen there was a cable blocking an exit and guy across the toll road where the highway ran the opposite direction ,, I ask to get off and paid the amout to this point of the toll road ,,he then unlocked the cable and let me through and I traveled around farmers fields until I got to 135 and first got gas and then on to Silana ,, I see now when I google maps it shows a highway 95 ,,not sure if that was there then or not ,,but I do know the guy did not unlock a cable for me to enter a highway ..

Many years ago, I was heading to the windy city AKA Chicago, with my IH and a 53 foot van trailer. Well, I missed an exit, I55 ends at Lakeshore drive. Talk about an experience getting turned back around... from narrow city streets to low El Train overpasses... I made it though.

That had to be one of your worst days,, people do not have much patients letting a guy take up the whole street to get it turned around .. Specially with that long of truck and trailer .

Reminds me of the time I was on a road and got off with no (legal) way to get back on. A group of 6 of us were traveling west in two Model A pickups thru Texas toward Huston in the middle of the night to beat the heat. I was following watching the single taillight of the other pickup, and saw it pull off an exit, so followed. Only trouble was, I realized it was a farmer headed home when he came to a stop at the bottom of the off ramp, and there was no on ramp going the same direction. I backed all the way up the off ramp to get back on the highway. A guy's gotta do what a guy's gotta do.

I did that once myself,, I didn't get that far down the off ramp ,but I did back up a bit on the gravel road side out of others way so to able me to get back on the freeway where I needed to be. light traffic so I did it.
