Association of Christian Truckers (ACT) has a nice website that you can go to for detailed information, and they have special events, too. Pretty cool place.

I will definitely put this on my list of destinations if and when I get the opportunity.

I ended up going to the Love’s. Just because it is closer to St.Louis.

Act has fee food, laundry, and showers. Always very nice people hanging out. They will cook for you.

I was tempted, but I have plenty of food in the truck, I have free showers at the Love’s. I am making Sauerkraut and Polish Sausage for supper. So if anybody is passing by the Love’s in Greenville, IL exit 45 on I-70. Swing by and say hello. I’m in the bright yellow thing with a “Haulin with Hubbard’s” trailer.

No clue why the boss is leaving the stickers on the trailer from where he got it.

He probably has more important things to spend his money on. ( Your paycheck for instance.) That vinyl lettering is neither easy or cheap to remove! I had to de brand a Dodge van that I bought years ago. It took a heat gun, plastic scrapers, and sore fingers tips on both hands, plus several hours over a couple of days to get it done. Then, if you do not use solevant to remove the residual adhesive, the name shows up again in dirt in very short order.

That makes sense. He came up with some line about the former owner of the trailer wanting him to keep it on there.

Not to mention, I did all of the work standing on the ground. You would need scaffolding and TORCHES to remove all of that vinyl!!

What about using a pressure washer to remove those vinyl graphics?

Nope. Been there, tried that. Only a heat gun or torch will work. Then lots of Goo-gone solvent to remove the adhesive residue.
