It's probably not a secret but a great little truck stop

Ya know you could be on to something here. I think its would be awesome to have a thread of different places we all have been that have had good food it would be alot more efficient than trying to keep up with all the food shows on the travel channel! CITY BBQ in Louisville Kentucky!

Unreasonable request?

A truck should have no problem starting after 4 days if it has good batteries and not an excessive drain. Don't expect a fridge to run though I would unplug that. If it does have problems I would look at getting the truck to a shop to find out why. On that same note I had seen an o/o put a solar panel on his truck to keep his batteries charged while not running.

(None of the above applies in cold weather)

Checking up

As I'm sitting here eating lunch my boss comes in and asks how long until I have a task done. Than lets me know more tasks to do, and to explain some parts of the task at hand. Well I dont mind talking about work at lunch I know he has a business to run and me being hungary shouldn't stop that but it got me to wondering how often do drivers deal with ( I'm guessing dispatch) trying to figure out how long it will take to get something done or why your stopped etc.?

Questions I'm afraid to ask

Surprisingly the new ones are pretty lite. I really don't know how much but we have to lift them from their pivet point which is normally flat.and have had to take a couple off for maintenance. Here is a question I'm afraid to ask because its so general I should know it. When youre in construction and they have a lane blocked off than they have the cones moved to the side where both lanes are open is the speed limit still 55 until you reach the end construction sign?

How Do You Deal With Homesickness?

I'm not going to say it gets better or goes away but it seems like the first two weeks are always the worst every time I left the worst was the first two weeks was hard after that everything seemed to settle into place.

Prime Inc. and my supply list.

Well I always used vacuums at a car wash or if I stayed at a hotel I put things I wouldn't be using every day in them. The ones you use by hand dont go down as far but I used them for the more day to day things. I always kept a zip up hoodie and a couple pairs of clothes on top so I wasn't having to mess with it everyday. Made it nice when since I never knew what climate I would be in.

I'm.not sure about the company individually but I had done extensively travel before for a living. I found space bags are nice to help squeeze more in than what you need. I used to use two types the kind with the need of a vacuum for heavy clothes and the type you use by hand for lighter clothes.just my 2ยข

Yo, Matt, thanks for dropping by!

I completely forgot about those things, which one did you use to prefer? Did you find the one that needed the vacuum, the vacuum itself, to take up to much room? I could see putting clothing away in such things to save a LOT on space.
