    While im in DFW--I have a few GOOD hidin spots---But if I had to do t/s thing--I favor the T/A in Rockwall on I-30 small but clean and Shoppin center directlybehind with@least 5 good eateries&if u rather fast food all around--But avoid Southside T/A-Hook& Peelot at all costs
    Course I only hang DFW if more than one days of drops--otherwise I stop short couple hundred miles and sneak in early AM--but im on paper

    I ended up at the Love's on 35W in Ft. Worth first time in recent memory that I paid less than $3.50 a gallon. There was a lot lizard in handcuffs and no parking when I pulled up to fuel. Then a spot opened up as I wheeled around so I spent the night there. Tonight I'll park at the customer.

    Stay away form the flying j, your truck won't survive the night. And there is a lot of criminal activity going on, because the off duty moon light Dallas Police officer is behind the fuel desk chatting the girls up.

    Let's see, best place to hang out in SE Dallas. Let's see, there's the Carl's Corner Petro down near 35E/35W. Oh and new QuickTrip opened up in Waxahatchie right off the interstate going north, there's that. There's a small truck stop in Red Oak also on the north side with a Subway and Pizza Inn.

    I think any of those are better/safer than the Dallas truck stops.
