    From my experience I consider the northeast to be the least truck friendly area of the country, Some parts are better or worse than others but in general.Among other reasons I say this is because truck stops are far and few. I rarely have trouble finding a truck stop anywhere else, midwest/ the south/ the west. What do the trucking veterans think. I will do the northeast but it doesn’t mean I like it.

    Agreed turned down a couple loads to the greater Boston area, to much of a PITA.

    The only part of the northeast I don’t mind to some degree is PA, excluding the Philly area. Outside of the Philly area PA has a decent number and decent size truck stops in my opinion.

    Never been there but have been told by many that Atlanta is not a very fun place to take a truck into.

    From my personal experience I'll say Chicago and St. Louis.
