New Truck Stops Info

I didn't know how to post this information on the truck stop site. A couple of fairly new truck stops for driver's to know about have recently opened. What was once the All American in Breezewood, Pa. has re-opened as the Mega Truck Stop with limited services. The lower parking area is open, fuel and the store too and rumor has it that Pilot/Flying J might again come onboard as the name brand to further it's success.

Also the once closed truck stop on I-75 exit 414 in Lake City, Fl. which has been refurbished and opened for awhile has now franchised with TA since July 15. Full restaurant, fuel, great showers and parking for 100 trucks is surely a plus.

Sorry if I posted this info in the wrong place but I felt any info on truck stops is a welcome note for drivers.

^^^^^^ Excellent information, good sir~!

Yeah, you probably should've posted this in the 'general' section, as not many people do even read the 'diaries' because people don't post updates in here, too often (since Turtle and Rob T. are on their routes and busy, ya know!)

I've got something to add, that's interesting, and maybe Brett or a moderator can move ALL this to the general section:

Drive thrus, for TRUCKS~! :)

Again, thanks for the info. Stay well, and smile~!

Anne A.,

Thanks for your reply. I was reading the CDL Diaries section and posted this info without realizing where I was. I asked Brett about moving it to the General section and he told me to copy/paste but I'm totally computer illiterate. If anyone knows how to do it in plain simple terms for dummies like me I'd be more than happy to do so.
