Today was my short day only had 7 hours I could drive today. I made my 02 early today and wanted to drive as close to 90 as possible. I’ve been in Texas, Louisiana, and now Florida for the week and the weather has been awful. I needed fuel so I sent the micro in they gave me some strange place so I made it with 20 minutes left on clock. So I thought I’d just stay here. Well this is a different type truck stop to say the least. I’m at Florida 595 truckstop. My doors are locked and have the strap on. But they have the best meat loaf in the restaurant. Everyone should stop here once.

Yeah, that's a great restaurant. I understand your concerns about the area Donna, but I stay there everytime I'm down in Miami. I've never experienced any issues there, and the food is excellent. It's actually one of the best places to park down there as far as I'm concerned. They have security guards who patrol the parking area.

I don't have a clue what an 02 or a 90 is. If the meatloaf is the best in the restaurant, are they serving it in the parking lot too?

I know I'm being a smartazz. Its been a long day and I'm tired, but I was serious about the 02 and 90 whatever that is.

02 and 90 are primes macro numbers. 02 is your loaded call and 90 is arrival to Consignee. I am sure all the Primates will correct me if I am wrong.

Consignee:

The customer the freight is being delivered to. Also referred to as "the receiver". The shipper is the customer that is shipping the goods, the consignee is the customer receiving the goods.

At Prime 01 is pick up 90 is final delivery. Every number in between 01 and 90 are extra stops.

Hey I stayed there about a week and a half ago. Little odd setup with the entry and exit gate that gets blocked in easy if there's more than three people trying to leave but it was everything else said above.

Wish I know you were coming down. I live about 15 minutes from there.

There really isn't whole lot of parking down this way. No actual "truck stops" (Loves/Etc.) south of Fort Pierce. Turnpike rest stop, up by Pompano Beach Service Plaza (MM66), is about the closest thing. No showers, usual fast food joints, about 45 truck parking spots.

There's a State Farmers Market that allows some parking, but it's got no facilities (looks like they are building some recently) and they are not in the safest neighborhood.

595 Truck Stop is a little weird, as truck stops go. They tried to make it into an "attraction", but I don't know. It should be "reasonably safe", being in a commercial neighborhood, but for a woman, I'd say the usual "extra precautions" should be in place.

I haven't been by there in awhile. The guy who runs the CB Shop is a friend of mine.

If I'm in the Miami area, I actually get on I75 and head off into the swamp to the Seminole reservation truck stop on snake road.. yes, it's out of the way, but it's safe, extremely quiet, and those ladies make some of the best empanadas. My youngest loves their alligator bites.. me, I'm not so much a fan of alligator meat.
