I'm like Jamie. Sleep like a rock. Trains, Jakes, Horns........never hear them. I am always parked way in the back if possible. The only thing that woke me up was when a driver backed into my sleeper at TA Ontario a couple of years ago around midnight.

I thought that one, and the Petro across the street, were always full before 1800?

I sleep like a rock usually and prefer the sounds of other trucks, so it doesn't bother me. When I her home, I usually sleep bad. Maybe I should play some idling truck sounds when I'm sleeping.

If the sound of static is called "white noise", what would you call the sound of rumbling trucks?

All worthy names for that blissful rumble. I too sleep better listening to - and feeling - the rumble of diesel engines.

1 Voice Blutooth Headphones Sleep Mask!

Mine was 1/2-priced... $20 including shipping. Wish I had packed it before surgery. Would have helped in hospital (noise and lights) and recouping at my Sister's (mostly light but some noise too).

Was using it at home briefly for "guided meditation" practice.
