    Another reason you didn’t see people parking on the fuel island and taking a shower back in the day, if they did when they came back out they would have learned a very expensive lesson. Their tires or air lines would have been slashed, now a days with cameras everywhere you can’t teach those lessons.

    Editor’s note: I’ve never participated nor do I condone such behavior

    It’s a bit frustrating. And this is a good place to vent.

    Been interesting. This little 8x8 box gets a bit tighter. And many more bathroom stops. Luckily we’ve been very lucky to find parking at Rest Areas for the nights and haven’t had to park in remote areas.

    Nice to have company but what I normally ran in six days took me seven last week… LOL

    I know what you mean.... my wife doesn't appreciate my 700 mile days. About 500 is her limit.

    You know what.. it is time to start towing these guys because blocking the fuel island.. blocking the fuel island so you want to take a shower is absolutely totally inconsiderate… I’m willing to bet you’re one of those that do that… too many people come into this industry with a complete lack of consideration for others that’s why they have parking areas go park and come in and take a shower…it’s called respect..many lack it.

    Personally I don't give a #### If the app wants to track me Weather I'm in the truck or not I don't Care if it knows if I'm driving or at home, on my horse, or drinking beer watching TV. What I do care about is the #### thing locking me out when I'm driving ( or when it thinks I am!!.. it's so frustrating to open it to scan in paperwork and it locks me out because it hasn't figured out I've stopped yet. I don't need an app or the company for that matter deciding when it's safe for me to use my #### phone. I guess that what our industry has come to though, that and the sandal wearing foreigners taking showers while parking on fuel islands and the puddles of piss in every parking lot and overflowing trash cans! Alright I'm getting off the soapbox now so somebody else can climb up on it.
