    I have had two window cling (peel and stick) signs for years. I got them from Amazon and you can customize the print (words you want.) Mine say, "NO, I don't want company, so leave me the hell alone." I've had em for 9 years and hang them every night on both windows on the doors from the inside of course. I have received 3 knocks in 9 years and have stayed in Gary, Philly, OKC, about all of em. The 3 knocks were likely due to the lizards being so drunk or high that she doesn't have the decency to look up at the door window.

    What I'm considering is....a magnetic sign for my trailer that says, "New Driver, Caution." This would allow less tailgating and maybe a touch more space. A sign saying, "Student" would get me in trouble. The DOT and Highway Patrol would not see a passenger who is supposed to be the instructor, and I would get pulled over all the time, so that's a bad idea.

    That Pilot is one nasty place. The Petro (old Steel City) and Love's (old Flying J) aren't much better. There's a reason
    why Gary is known as the "armpit of America."

    The old Walt Whitman was a madhouse at night.

    Worse than a mad house. It was a smelly, dirty and lot lizard infested rat's nest. Even though it was the only truck stop in Philly it will never be missed.

    I've had one girl ask if I wanted company in 7years. Was sitting doing paperwork so idk if that's why she approached but never had anyone knock. Thinking back she was probably too pretty to be an actual lizard, probably a sting. Luckily I had to leave anyway.

    I would have put her down in my schedule. 7 Years from now she should expect a dispatch to pick up....err.....take a load. Then charge her if she's late.

    The Pilot near downtown Denver and the TAs in Nashville and Atlanta were bad too.
