The place sure caused an uproar on the Eastside when it first opened. They had a trapeze that pissed lots and lots of people off. I'm not sure what the story on land ownership and zoning is, but even reps from the INYO were involved with that fiasco.

I think the funniest thing, ever, was my mom (the head of the fiduciary committee for the thrift store that benefited the Mammoth Hospital) and all her little old lady "CastOff" friends would dress in the 9s and drive up there for fish tacos. They'd have the time of their lives. Everybody who worked there treated them like Royalty. . . and that's sayin' something.

The only time I ever stopped there was at midnight, to get gas.

HA!

Isn't this ironic. A bunch of climbers praising BIG OIL.

By the way, it is the Tioga Gas Mart, not Tuolumne Mobil.

Well. . . yeah. . . but that kinda goes without sayin', even though it was known, by the locals, as TheMoMart for a long time, too.

Any climber who travels in an SUV, truck, or other vehicle with shitty gas mileage is by default "praising" BIG OIL.

I too agree the mobil is tastey! but there is somewhere better! TPR (tioga pass resort) is of the same or higher quality, cheaper, and WAY closer to the east entrance of the park. it is way before the big grade. check it out, its the bomb and you dont have to be staying there to eat.

1 down side though: they close during the winter!

Not to mention just a little bit more atmosphere, eh?

It's almost like you can't even compare them.

TPR FTWFS! (ForTheWinFerSher)

Sounds a little more dine in like. Are they welcoming to people who might be a little hygiene challenged.
