Had a rough night. Tried backing into two spots and couldn't make it in because of inconsiderate people parking everywhere. Even had someone trying to help me.

Left and went to another truck stop tried two more spaces and couldn't get in. Totally frustrated, went in paid for parking.

It's been a while since I had a hard time backing but somedays it happens.

I've had days like that. Since my company uses Flying J/Pilots, I will use my points cause they don't have much I really want or need. Or I pay and the company reimburses me. I know lots of drivers think it's wrong to have to pay, but it is what it is and I like having a place to park when I'm tired.

My company reimbursed as well. You should check to see if yours does, many of our drivers don’t know Wolding does.

Any time I am going to arrive after 4 PM I will reserve a spot just to be sure I have somewhere to park.
