    Less than 60 minutes ago I was looking for a truckstop in Bellefontaine OH that that dang trucker app said was just off hwy 33 called the Original Blonde. Had only 30 minutes left on my clock to drive and did not see any truckstop at all. It is around 9 o'clock at night so I need to get back to the hwy quick and get parked.

    I turn down this little pitch black county road that will head back to the main road in a few miles and there is only one single set of head lights coming at me the whole time I am on this road. It is not until I am passing those lights that I look and see it is not a car or truck.

    It was a freaking man pulled rickshaw. If it was not for all the lights hooked up on the front and back I would have thought I had turned off into ancient China. There was this little skinny guy pulling it along while he was running through the night with a someone riding inside.

    By the time I made it to the hwy I had about 10 minutes left and saw a rest area with available parking so I was able to shutdown before going into violation.

    The Amish in spring 2020 in middle Wisconsin. Was going from St. Paul, MN to Mosinee, WI hauling hot AC oil running under an exemption so we were cranking out some really long days. So all that week I had been running on about 2-3 hours of sleep a night, so things had been getting sketchy late at night, not remembering going places and seeing things. But l remember I was driving along WI-29 and about 6 miles from Curtiss and I dozed off and the rumble steps on the far left woke me up just before I put it in the weeds. And then I saw the lights, little red and white lights everywhere, all along the westbound side. So I thought to myself I'm either dead or I really, really desperately need sleep cause I'm seeing ####, hit the ramp for Abbyland and then I see them again. A sea of little white and red lights, I finally saw what they were, it was the effing Amish riding their god d*mn bikes in the middle of the night.

    The homeless RV'ers who camp out at truck stops scare me.

    If fuel prices keep going up we may start seeing more of them.
