    Shower. 14.00
    Parking 18.00
    Food. 7.95 plus tax.

    It may only be 35ish to some people. But i haven't been here ten mins yet.
    This reminds me of what Harley did to Indian. Thats why I won't buy one brand new.

    Shower. Free
    Parking Free
    Food $7 maybe. $3 if I still have food from home.

    Drivers that pay for parking remind me of how our country got afu.

    Probably by deciding we are a service economy and service is always paid for...

    Not entirely tongue in cheek there, but look at everything thats a "subscription"

    I hate truck stops, so they only get money from me for fuel.

    1. Got a shower setup I've used for years while camping and hunting. 6 gal sprayer. Set it on the deck of the trailer, and it'll be warm when I stop for the night.

    2. I don't park at truck stops.

    3 Fill up my fridge when I head out. Plenty of canned food yoo.

    Some of the Petro’s and TAs with a bunch of empty reserved parking spots have lost my Business. They have a right to Capitalize on the situation. I see it as extortion on top of already inflated prices. Someday maybe they’ll decide my Business is desired. Seen it happen a few times, when things get tough. Dealerships suddenly Catering to O/Os, Car Dealers focusing on selling tires and running oil change specials. Loves is smart with the parking, responding to criticism of small Lots. They’re building bigger Lots, and opening up everywhere. For now, they get my Business.

    Is it an airless sprayer, like for pesticides? Did you paint it to absorb more heat? We need answers (and pictures)

    Owning my truck, I've made modifications. Ripped out right side cabinets and put in a 3' tall refrigerator. Fastened a sliding countertop to it and now in process of putting in cabinets along the walls of the sleeper. Aldi, Walmart, Meijer and Hyvee keep the truck stocked. I drive and wife cooks. Although she can spend (I think) too much on groceries, we seldom eat the food sold at fuel stops.
