    Since becoming an OTR truck driver I miss shooting pool. I searched "truck stops with pool tables" and found a thread that had some listed but they were all on the east coast or rust belt area. But I'm a rookie driver who only does the western 11 states. Anyone know of any truck stops with pool tables in this part of the country? I do a lot of California to Colorado + Wyoming runs, sometimes up to Washington, sometimes down to AZ/NM as well. Anyone been to truck stops with pool tables in this part of the country?

    IIRC, Hat Six at Casper has a table. Been quite awhile since I've been up there, though. The bar attached to the Flying J in Rapid City, SD has multiple tables.

    Drawing a blank on where else I've seen them.

    Back in the 70s my buddy hustled Hoover vacuume cleaners during the day and hustled pool at night throughout the Midwest

    Later on in life he became very wealthy and had a beautiful tournament sized pocket pool table in a well lit 20x30 room .

    Games were always $10 and he rarely lost . I could still make my money back on the ping pong table though.

    The only one off the top of my head is the ta in Laredo TX... I want to say there was one at the petro in Kingman but I could be delusional

    The Ranch Hand on 30 in Montpelier, ID has a bar. I would assume tables too, but i haven't been in.

    I'll keep that in mind if I ever go up to Casper. I've only been dispatched on runs to Cheyenne so I never go off of i80.

    That's cool! I'm not even that good, I just like to play the game for fun.

    I've fueled up in Kingman several times but never taken my 10hr there. Next time I roll through I'll check the Petro.

    Surprisingly I haven't been dispatched on a load to Idaho yet but I'll keep that in mind, I'd love to go there.

    That's good to know! I've tried to take my 10 at a truck stop in Portland once before and I couldn't find any parking! Truck stop was completely full by 4pm. I've avoided stopping there since that incident. Next time I'll check out Jubitz.

    OMG!!! I wish I knew about that earlier. A few weeks ago I was stuck in Phoenix over the weekend because dispatch couldn't find me an empty trailer until Monday. I was bobtailed at the flying J literally directly across the street... I could have been shooting pool! Instead I sat in my truck bored out of my mind

    Good place to get a quick washout too, unlike the other options.
