    I like the local lore, pickup driving slowly up the middle of the NJ turnpike truck lanes with a couple going at it on a mattress in the back...often told by the most gregarious guy in the barn who goes on to describe it happened while he was training the guy who claimed to be a preacher so he matched speed for a good bit so the preacher would get a real eye full...

    Well, there is that picture floating around of a nekkid lady riding on the top of a sleeper cab. Yes, the very top....

    I can't remember the exact location or state. My pop used to talk about a lady that was murdered somewhere along US 80 in either Alabama or Mississippi way back in the late 50s. I think she was a hitchhiker. According to my pop Truckers could sometimes see her thumbing for rides along that stretch of road. Pop said he never did see her and I have not either and going back to when I was a small boy I remember riding on US 80 even across the old now closed to traffic US 80 bridge that crosses the Mississippi River! Legend?? Most likely!

    I am deeply ashamed to admit it, but so have I. In of all places on I 95 in DC. I was bobtail and actually went to sleep. Thankfully I was bobtail because some bumps in the road shook me awake. It was painful, but I finally go up to a TS in Maryland! Never again!

    There's plenty of 'em. They usually start out like "there I was, going down Donner in the snow when I lost my brakes as my trailer started coming 'round..."
