‘AMBest’ is also a truck-stop chain, albeit much smaller; I’ve never found one yet to be completely full. Probably just jinxed myself there. Found this one using the Trucker Path app... used to be a legit truck stop, now it’s just a Shell w/a very nice convenience store, and room for about four trucks. More if you remove additional “no parking” signs.

There is a TA, candy an AM Best just a few miles from the Walmart DC in Johnstown. I90 exit 28. The AM Best has a 24hr deli, and they make killer sammiches, and other great food. Better than the TA. You have to pay to park there, or spend $15 in store. The lot is a little rough, but easier parking than the TA.

I understand the point of reserved parking, but to the point of literally half the lot is ridiculous. I figured at that point some of the guys were saying screw it and just sliding in. It’s the TA west of Columbus Ohio off I-70. It’s just crazy

I'm at that TA right now and it does get crazy. I've been working out of that Target dc right there for almost a week so I've parked here each night. Luckily I leave the dc bobtail and they have separate bobtail parking.

Bobtail:

"Bobtailing" means you are driving a tractor without a trailer attached.

Nice. I’m working out of the same DC. I rarely leave bob tailed from there u less I’m headed home. Trailer in, trailer out lol

Wouldn’t be so bad if I didn’t despise Arby’s. There’s a tractor shop just down the road that I’ve parked at and they don’t mind as long as you stay off to the side.l and keep it clean. Might be helpful if the event the three stops there are full some time.
