    I've been out here 2 years, and I've seen 2.

    The pilot in Atlanta, and not very... well, she looked 'overworked' - in many ways.

    The other was outside of Memphis, TN, across the street from the Pilot's.
    She was good looking, and started by asking if she could use my CB to call a friend.
    I said no, and she was on her way.

    I'm 57 years old and I'm still healthy.
    I don't intend to throw that away with a one nighter with a lizard.

    You aren't going to have a problem with lot lizards, unless you want one. I think in the 16 years of driving I have had one knock at the door and it was in a really bad area and I was parked somewhere I shouldn't have.

    Yes there's crime and crap going on all over the place but that doesn't mean you have to be a part of it. Be smart about things, always pay attention and don't put yourself into bad situations. You will learn the places to avoid, which are few and far between. For the most part, most truck stops are fairly safe and secure. Most of them are usually well lit and have video surveillance. A good number of them also have security roaming the parking lots.

    One important thing to remember that a lot of drivers don' t think of is to always keep your doors locked. Not just when you are parked or sleeping, you want to keep them locked while you are driving too!

    I really haven't had a problem, although I would suggest being tactful when you do decline their services. Makes it nice to not wake up to empty tanks, flat tires, etc.
    I like your common-sense approach. And, typically, being civil tends to have a lot of other advantages too.
