    I apologize. Should have been noted. He is ok in regards to “major” problems and has been released. Rest of story tomorrow as I’m gonna pass out soon.

    This is why I'm a one truck operator, not reefer or haz. I don't want those calls in the night for any price. I hope your deep in dreamland, Midwest.

    I guess this is why I'm just in the Thousandaires club.

    What Scooter said. Praying for his full recovery from whatever it was.

    The odds are that the longer a driver spends in this industry, hours and hours every week in a truck, which includes sleeping in said truck in the middle of nowhere, a health crisis will occur. The OTR (my opinion only) lifestyle sucks on so many levels.

    Getting quality sleep at these crowded truck stops is impossible.Staying healthy without quality sleep is even less possible.

    Why? I get 7-8 hours at every truck stop I'm at most nights. Does the noise bother you?

    Yes. It interrupts my sleep. Especially unnecessary noise from old beat up APUs. Carriers are the loudest. Nothing worse from having a Prime truck as a neighbor (APU and reefer at the same time).
    I bought myself noise cancelling headphones so...maybe they will help.

    Sometimes I check in at a motel too. I like to do this when I am not loaded though.
    But there is more to it than just noise...not sure what.

    The lack of quality sleep manifests itself especially when after a few days or a week of being on the road I get back home...eat dinner, have a drink and then fall asleep like a rock for long hours on my sofa with a TV on.
