I’m leaving here headed to Gould Florida I suppose it’s gonna get worse plus I don’t speak Spanish.

Get some Cuban food while your down there & yes, that's Miami area. Basically, you're jumping out of the frying pan & jumping into the fire. I was at a drop near there that had a food truck come by for breakfast & lunch. Great Cuban food on that thing.

Gut trucks are awesome. Some of the best food I have had all over the world has come off of gut trucks.

I've got 3 on my list. That was a publix DC in Miami. There's a Mexican one across from Flying J west of Albuquerque & the School Bus converted into a Mexican diner across from the Love's in Heyburn, ID.

Hey, talking about road repair. Many of the Interstate roads I drive are so rough that the jolts drop the Jake lever. I’ve developed the annoying habit of constantly checking to make sure the Jake isn’t on. Any other drivers experiencing the same?

Interstate:

Commercial trade, business, movement of goods or money, or transportation from one state to another, regulated by the Federal Department Of Transportation (DOT).

Well I guess Miami will wait till tomorrow. I’m spending the night in a rest area on 4 outside of winter haven. I got two pallets of hot pockets that didn’t belong to Walmart so I’m waiting on claims to tell me what to do with them. On the bright side it’s a beautiful rest area, watched the sun set, and talked to a older driver that has the longest gray beard I’ve ever seen. He said his kids are all grown, so he was gonna quit the road. But now he has 9 grands and it’s to noisy at home. I guess he gonna drive till they are grown, should be hitting 100 by then. Bless his heart.

Every time I stop at that Loves in Heyburn ID it's either to early or to late for the Taco truck next to gear gammers truck wash. There's a truck that stops at the Sysco in North Vegas (one by the Petro). Dang good carnitas.

Hope you get sorted soon Donna. Are you at the Polk City rest area? Anyway, that's much nicer than the drop yard in Auburndale. Tho, I have been back since we got a bathroom trailer instead of those portopotties that were there before.
