    Back when we had bag phones, I barely used mine. I did not even turn it on much because I didn't have roaming on mine and I think maybe 30 minutes of free minutes.
    I stopped in my regular truckstop for fuel, and thee was a note that the boss, wass in the hospital getting open heart surgery, and for me to just try to keep everything rolling.
    I had to take care of business off the phone, my bill that month was 1400 some odd bucks. lol
    booley and Intothesunset Thank this.

    Guys, I haven't been keeping up with your posts, but this "Truck Stop" had NO FUEL PUMPS, just a 2 to 3 Story Brick Building & The Lot that it was built in.

    Like I said before, I pulled in & I was warned by the other drivers there to stay in My Truck & not open My doors for anything or anyone until the sun came up & if I had to pee, to do it in a cup & pour it out in the morning.

    Well, we're trying.

    But you're talking about a place that might have been bulldozed 30+ years ago.

    Is it possible that you are mistaken in your belief that the truckstop was in Manhattan and the truckstop is/was Tooley's Truck Terminal in Jersey City, NJ?
    TokyoJoe Thanks this.
