    I thought we had an agreement you wouldn't post anything on the internet about that incident.

    Personally, I shower at least every other month.

    Even if I don't really feel the need.

    I disagree with the not having time in 4 or 5 days, We can only drive 11 hrs out of 14 so that leaves 3 hrs to get a shower and i know in 4 days you stop for fuel so there's the perfect time to shower.If a driver can find 2-3 hrs to BS at a casino or TS they can find 30 minutes to Shower. Heck the driver might even get the waitresses attention if he smeeled good.

    I shower everyday. Very rarely will I skip a day. Also I change my shirts everyday. If all I've been doing is sitting and driving without spilling any coffee on my pants or grime from my PT and multiple daily walk around, I'll change my jeans every other day.

    It is to easy in keeping yourself clean & your teeth brushed. It's pure laziness to go around dirty, smelly & unkempt.
     
    OPUS 7 and Marksteven Thank this.

    From someone who has never took/paid for a truckstop shower.
    How much could it possibly cost?

    It depends on the person. Some people think they don't have time to stop for a shower or just don't care...

    There won't be time unless you stop and take the time.

    I try to everyother day....and spongebaths or babywipes to matain a nice level of cleaness inbetween...
    If i happen to stop at an independant location that i have not bought fuel, i have paid for a shower...but often they give one to you if they recognize you as a regular in the restraunt/store....
    at a chain, if you need one, and don't want to pay, ask a driver getting one for a free team shower, or heck, they might give you one...
    I for one usually have a few showers expire a week....
    Would love to get one daily, but the schedule is what it is...but mataining a level of cleaneniness is important....
    the worst thing in the world is to be inline st a shipper/reciever, and be gaging cause some pig in line has not even wipe down with a few baby wipes....
    we all have bad weeks, but even overnight at a shipper can be ok for hygine if you plan ahead.
