I have a delivery Friday in Conroe, Texas and my route will put me right about Nacogdoches,Texas at the end of the day.

Let me know if you can meet for dinner.

Heck yeah man!

Are you doing a ten hour break here in town or just stopping for dinner and a visit?

We've got plenty of places to park here, and I can pick you up in my car and take you somewhere for a decent meal.

If you are running out of time there is also parking in Lufkin and there is a nice new Loves just north of Lufkin before you get to Nacogdoches. Keep me updated about your schedule and let me know where you think you will be parking. Morgan Oil truck stop on the loop in Nacogdoches always has parking available.

I'm looking forward to it!

If you need to go to Wal-Mart or anything like that, I'd be glad to escort you around my town.

I'll be heading south on US 259 and I'm going to shoot for the Love's in just north of Lufkin, but if that changes I'll let you know.

I'll be taking a 10-hour break.

It looks like I'm going to be getting there about 9 p.m. tonight.

So, a couple of questions.

What's my best bet for parking at that time of night AND a shower?

And do you want to try to do dinner tonight or breakfast in the morning?

Okay, I think your best bet is the T/A express in Nacogdoches. You're most likely to find parking there at that time than you will at the Love's just North of Lufkin. They also have showers. As far as dinner tonight or breakfast in the morning, I will do what works best for you. Just let me know what you prefer. I'm available at either time.

If for some reason there is no parking at the T/A, you can park at the Morgan Oil truck stop which is there at the same exit. I'd be happy to drive you over to the T/A for a shower if you want.

Keep me posted here in this thread, and we will meet up once you are ready.

I'm going to head to the TA Express. I should be there about 9.

I would prefer to do breakfast probably about 5:30 in the morning that works for you.

That's perfect! Let me know when you are here, and we will finalize everything.

I'm here at the TA. I'm in the parking lot on the far side in a sort of flatbedders row.

I'll be ready to go at 5:30 if that works for you.

I will be there @ 5:30. I'm looking forward to it.
