    Visitors flock to our truck stops too, that's why I'm constantly having to wait in line for my fuel receipt behind Large Marge and her hoard of unruly kids while they try to decide if they would rather have 47 corn dogs or 8 pepperoni pizzas.

    A third of the trucks look to be blocked in by other trucks, I guess some things don't change no matter where you're at.

    I'm sure the owner (Ali Sadrudin...) specified a foot bath be included.....

    Looks like Mark Cox is having a "full English" there......

    Parking in the truck lot looks like a cluster ****.

    Oh, BTW, you should pronounce that at "loverly".....

    I remember the old place, the pub, from many years ago. I never went in but if I remember rightly it was set back from the road in a loop of the old road, what we call a lay-by in England and, in the days before sleeper cabs were common, towards the end of the day it would fill up with lorries, many of which were left by drivers hitching home on a 'dodgy'. Although many of us had bedding in the cab and managed to build up the seats with whatever was to hand, night out suitcases (for carrying into transport 'digs') etc.,and then bits of foam with a sleeping bag spread across over the engine hump and attempted to get a good night's sleep, many more if their homes were within easy hitching distance would wave a logbook at the first driver passing and always be given a lift. Fair enough but the same had to be done in the morning, that meant some very early starts.

    It looks very swish now and if I ever go that way again, highly unlikely, I might just call in and satisfy a need. One thing is for certain though, I wont be having a full English, I haven't lived this long by shovelling all that stuff into my face before facing the day. :rolleyes::D
