    Park next to hazmats. I won’t move because of them but I don’t like sleeping next to them.

    I parked at the PFJ in Chemult Oregon a few months ago and as I was backing in I noticed that the spot was wet, but didn't think much of it. After about 10 minutes a horrific smell filled my truck, and it was then I realized that the parking spot was wet because the septic system was overflowing and draining into the parking lot. Needless to say I moved quickly and told management, who was oblivious to the problem.

    I've moved many times at the petro in Jackson Mississippi trying to get a decent cell signal. 4 maybe 5 times in one day. Cell service there sucks for some reason. I've also moved after to reefer have parked next to me.

    If you're in the deep south in July mid after-noon FACING the sun sitting in driver's seat drinking a tall cold one, you will move to another spot. Trust me......:biggrin_2559::bootyshake:

    Used to pickup wet hides from a couple different packing plants, hide loading docks are usually right next to the holding pens, I used bring along a bib, knife, fork, steak sauce and plates, and ask if I could pick out my preferred cow.

    If I see a Swift or Western Express setting up to back in next to me, I'll move, usually across the state line

    If you need a nap you need a nap, middle of the day definitely not ideal, if it’s not crazy hot and you can get a breeze across them they will keep.


    Again not ideal, I would have to be in a bind to do it, especially 3 hours but it sure beats layin one over
