    I wish I could get a truck wash close to home. I"m tired of washing my truck the only wash nearby is the fricken 49er (in Sacramento for those lucky enough not to have been there) and I just refuse to spend a dollar at that place. Those clowns there never have all the 5 fuel lanes working and because they want to charge for parking there is no room in front of the pumps.Those that have had the misfortune of stopping there know what a total cluster F that place is. Ok rant over time for me to wash my truck.

    I have to ask the following.

    One, do you share with the OM, or do you get two of these, 1 for you, 1 for OM. Does Kitty get in on this?

    All I see is Potatoes and Bacon. No eggs or other items.
    Is that correct.

    Have you ever considered tomatillo green sauce on the potatoes.

    You said your on a diet.

    Had a regular delivery in Dixon, the customer had a full on hot water, soap injected wash bay. They wanted us to wash the loads, but not in their wash bay. So the only choice was 49er. To get truck, trailer and load washed, $185.00. That was only because the company had an account. We did get free overnight parking.
     
    InTooDeep Thanks this.

    I get a fuel solution there every trip up the 5. I went once and that’s all I needed to know.. Cluster-####. I avoid it as best I can.

    DEF doesn’t work most days. Can’t uturn out most times. Have to drive through the lot and they stack at the exit. Drivers just get out of their trucks and go into the store blocking the exit.

    Nothing like getting off the 5 to fight your way on the 80 and deal with that place so my carrier can save $.01 per gallon.

    I drive straight by and request a new solution when I get south towards Patterson.

    You have not had any fun yet. Then you will never get to visit the Vanco in Stockton.

    Ok.

    What’s Vanco Stockton. I feel like my growth as driver (I’m just big boned) requires I visit these places.

    Well my load was already T-called for Monday, not tomorrow. Soooo it will be a nice easy cruise back. Going to see if I can be a total scumbag trainer and make him drive, then do his 10 and make him finish the drive while I watch movies and yell nonsense and witticisms at him that have no bearing on things.

    He’s done after this. I’ll probably drive a lot just because I like to drive.
     
    Opus and Dave_in_AZ Thank this.
