The home depot has started allowing trucks there again, but at the far end of the lot they share with the movie theater. The HS truck stop (abandoned one) is where I par my truck, and also drop my trailer, during my hometimes. The Walmart allows parking, where Grumps and I met. Also, the casino allows parking. It might not appear it, but the old truck stop is as safe as most open stops.

The casino? That is surprising. Is it where the water park used to be that they let you park?

I'm surprised at the safety of the truck stop too. It looks like a spot for serial killers to hide, LOL. But good to know.

Casino has a secured lot, that drivers can park. My issue, is getting in and out of the area with a truck. I am too lazy to actually figure out the truck routes, there. The old truck stop is just 3 miles from my house.

You being on the island, the home depot or the truck stop would be ideal, since I 190 is right there.

Yeah, either is great. I'm just surprised the casino gave up parking for cars. They are probably hoping drivers will come in and gamble.

You will find that a lot of casinos have truck parking, some even have special trucker promotions.

If Grumpy goes with Wolding he will get a lot of time at the old truck stop going to Norpak/Greenpac.

Wolding has a huge presence there. I see more blue and orange, than any other company.

They are definitely on my radar. I also like Roehl and Maverick, though I'm not sure my ankle can handle tarping the glass.
