I'm currently at the Pilot in Hagerstown, MD. The one where they try to kill out of shape drivers by making them walk up a two storey flight of stairs from the pumps to the store.

Whenever I'm here I recall that this was the first truck stop I actually slept at. I was with my trainer at USXpress at the time. I had a nice, easy straight back into a parking spot. Who else remembers the first truck stop they slept at?

Hey, that’s my home town! I climbed those steps many, many times. That’s one of the places my driving instructor took us to practice backing up when I was in driving school which wasn’t to long after that opened. The AC&T across the road has the best fried chicken too. They’ve just opened a brand new rudders truck stop down 81 in WV off exit 16 west that people probably don’t know about yet. I’m living 200 miles south in Roanoke now.

Cool! Yeah, I picked up a load earlier this morning from the Home Depot DC about a Mile away.

I'd rather be back in Hagerstown than my current delivery location in Secaucus, NJ.

I’d rather be anywhere than setting foot in the state of NJ 😂

Rest area in Preble, NY. I was pretty tired and decided to stop. Napping in a daycab sucks.

Jeez! What a bunch of complainers, you day cab drivers are. You'd never hear my man, PackRat complain about napping in a day cab. Probably because he wouldn't be caught dead in one let alone sleeping in it.

*I don't think you guys are complainers. Just trying to be funny

Day Cab:

A tractor which does not have a sleeper berth attached to it. Normally used for local routes where drivers go home every night.

Banks has accepted his stature, though. On another thread earlier, he wrote that he is a "road driver".

If he were in a real truck, he could be considered a truck driver. Luckily, he knows the difference. Finally.

It's taken awhile, especially with a stormy TODAY day; aka.. no WiFi... YET, hay great news, BK ~!!!!! :) I've FOUND a photo of .. the first Petro .. that I stayed at WITH Tom, In Perrysburg, Ohio (before we found the off road cemetery lane for a hidey hole, behind said place!)

I've been searching; and MAN, the memories. Good, bad, ugly, and onions.

Yep, BEEN THERE, (he's) done that.

Feeling old(er.)

That cut a little deep lol

Truth is, truck drivers aspire to be road drivers. The line is longer than the line for space mountain.
