    You going to spend Christmas on the road sir?
    I used to love this time of the year on the road when all truck stops and rest areas had plenty of empty spaces to park... and less trucks on the road.... :biggrin_25519: I really miss that...
    My only family was my dad in Brasil.. now he is gone and I am here, in the city of Cabo Frio... with no more family... But I am fine.... used to being on my own most of my life...
    Going to go to a Catholic Church this evening.. I am not Catholic and never watched a Christmas mass at a Catholic Church before.. but that's where I want to be this evening...
    You have a blessed Christmas time wherever you are... stay safe...
    BTW... this is an old picture from a New Year's Eve... or Christmas... can't remember... parked at a Pilot in La Vergne, TN... that place is always full but it was kinda empty that time... and I got a great parking spot... that's a picture to remember.. :biggrin_25519:

    Yes I’m on the road I’ll be empty Friday in okc. I don’t have much family left so I run over the holidays. I have a brother in Alabama I could spend the holidays with,but it would feel a bit awkward. He’s going to my nieces house to celebrate Christmas.
    This truck stop was almost full when I got here yesterday, and stayed that way. Even the pay spots are taken now, and of course they are parked along the curbs and every where else they can find.
     
    Rocks and dwells40 Thank this.

    Each year parking becomes worse and worse.... less parking places and more trucks... and folks park just anywhere, blocking others... even if you get a good parking spot, you wake in the morning with someone blocking you... :biggrin_2552:

    That’s why I try to stay away from the big chain truck stops. There are three bobtails parked along the curb at the fuel island entrance here. They have been there since I went inside around 1am.

    Holding the couch down at the moment. I have a fairly long list of things to do. I could probably get everything done and load up Friday, but seems like a good excuse to take a week off :D
     
    Rocks Thanks this.

    It's nice you can get some rest... Wishing you and all members here a great passage to the New Year and open horizons in all your travels. Stay always safe.
    I am recuperating from a nasty respiratory virus that totally knocked me down for a few days... But I am getting better... Going out now to catch some sun... :biggrin_25519:
