Many roads and offroad trails along the Daniel Boone Backcountry Byway are named after landscape features, such as ridges, creeks, or forks. Others are named based on what towns they connect, such as Fixer-Leeco. Then you have the roads named after the town or settlement itself. That is the case with Fixer Road. Let's be clear. Fixer is not named in adoration an attorney who works for corrupt politicians, but rather for a man who was irritated with the U.S. Post Office. Folklore has it that a post office was established in the community in 1917. After submitting several rejected entries to postal authorities, an irritated customer declared that he was done suggesting place names. If the post office didn't like it, they could "fix 'er" themselves. If you are driving the DBBB, Fixer Road takes you through historical oil and gas activity and old homesteads while providing views of the Big Sinking Creek.
