    That truckstop is always full as a tick. It is one of the last truckstops southbound going into Dallas. Luckily, there weren't more trucks involved.

    I spent my 30 min there yesterday and they were still cleaning up. The ShipEx (green truck) had damages as well as a dry van on the other side. Scary stuff to wake up to, I bet.

    Imagine waking up and thinking it's just hot outside so you crank up your A/C, only to look out your window and see fire

    One more thing to consider, as though there isn't enough already.

    And this is why if you think your going to block me in at the truckstop you've lost your mind, not happening
