    Have a mall delivery there. I might be able to sleep there but I'm looking for options.

    I see Walmarts, Targets, Cabellas, the Space Museum (oh I am SO going to that!) but I don't see a truckstop in town or any rest areas off the highways.

    Is this town truck friendly or am I gonna get chased to the city limits?

    Need to know by Wednesday afternoon.

    NE Huntsville us72 there is a spot to park that isn't on trucker park and a stop. Further out on 72 is a circle k that has parking as well.

    I can tell you where that Target distribution Center is that little Indian Truck Stop that's right on the other side of 565 don't even think about parking there overnight.. get your stuff and you go

    I saw that Circle K. Seems a bit far out as I'd really like to keep my hours tight. (Thursday is gonna be brutal) I also saw what looks to be a boat ramp. Might be a nice place to spend the afternoon.

    But then I realized I could go to the space center museum,,, hmmm.

    I ended up spending the afternoon at the rocket museum and then went to the mall lot after hours. I unload in the morning.

    Nice town, but definitely needs more truck parking.
