I have recently noticed a big difference in the calibur of truck stops out here on the road. Some truck stops seem to say "get your fuel and get lost"!!!!! They aren't driver friendly at all.
Some truck stops have no place for a driver to relax and some don't even have a place for a driver to sit, that is unless he sits in one of the "fast food" tables along with a bunch of screaming kids in an uncomfortable metal chair.

You just never know who or what you will run into at a truck stop these days!
We stopped for the night at the Petro in Oak Grove Mo. and were outside with Rocky while he did his sniffing routine! There was a very nice couple out there also with their dog. They told us about “JAKE”, one of Hunters Travelers and asked if we’d like to help out by taking him with us for a little bit! We are glad he will be with us for a little while and even Bobby Boofay is going to help out!
Hunter is a 14 year old boy from a small town in OHIO. He has stage 4 Renal failure-chronic pancreatitus and Biliary cirhosis of the liver.
Now I’m not going to give too much away because we would like for all of you to show your support by going to his facebook page.
All I can say is he’s going to have so much fun with Bobby Boofay and we promise not to let him get in any trouble!
It’s times like this that really make us LOVE trucking!!
If you would like to have “jake” travel with you, please send us a note!
