    Traveling through Florida the rest stop have billboards in advance that tell how many open slot they have. They use a magnetic sensor in the pavement to count open spots. Seems to me, this tech should expand and some whiz kid builds an app to pull that info together. But not mark Zuckerberg. He can suck eggs.

    I have a 2022 Rand McNally, laminated. Never used it, though. I carry it around in the back the way a gamer might keep a rubber in his wallet when he goes to Comic-Con. You know, the one he got in health class years ago.

    It's there... "In case..."

    Yes. It’s my husband who drives for them. He’s been with them for about 6 weeks. That includes the 4 weeks of training he did with his trainer. They hired him with no experience. He was a recent graduate from TDI in Sanford, Florida. I can answer any specific questions you have based on what I know so far with his experience. All around we feel likes it’s been a really good experience for him to gain that much needed OTR training and experience.

    He is. We are in Gainesville. It’s about an hour and half from the yard in Eustis.

    Do they still sell those truck stop books? I bought one when I first started driving in 2014. I can't imagine it being anywhere close to as good and up to date as the Trucker Path app.
