Wondering about showers

I was on the road back in the mid 70s and you had to pay $3 each time you wanted a shower. Than I was back on the road from 2004 to 2006 and the showers were free and f you were a team they would put two showers on your fuel card every time you fueled. I am fixing to go back out on the road again and I understand that they are starting to charge anywhere from $10 to $15 for a shower. Can anyone clarify this for me?

Delivering Underground In Kansas

I was still a rookie at the time and I was just getting comfortable with everything around me. smile.gif As they say, "you know you are still alive when you learn something new" or something to that affect. Well anyway, I was under a load going to Kansas and as I said I was comfortable until I got to the receiver. embarrassed.gif That's when I remembered that I was still a rookie and still in the learning stages of this career. confused.gif The door I had to deliver to was underground and extremely tight to maneuver. wtf.gif Once I was backed in I let out a sigh of relief and couldn't wait till my next new experience. thank-you.gif Let me know if you have experienced this or anything similar that you would like to share with everyone.
