    I think you're reading to much into it. It probably has a lot more to do with the price and scarcity of real estate as it does anything else.

    I was just responding to a comment that a small number of truck stops is somehow a good thing. It just rubbed me the wrong way.

    That aside, I did enjoy the scenery in northern Cal. Some nice drives there.

    I think there is plenty of truck stops along I-5. But it's gong to be a hot one today.

    Exactly, plus my comment was tongue in cheek too... and you'll find (like RBA says) plenty of truck stops 75 miles off the coastal area. Where land is cheaper and folks don't have to pay and arm and leg for acreage. As for "goods" the Bay Area is also a shipping and rail hub and thus goods arrive in more ways than in trucks.

    It was late and I was tired and cranky.

    I did find plenty of places down 5 all the way to L.A., but I didn't need to stick around long. I'm headed across I-10 with a load bound for Atlanta. I stopped in Phoenix for a D' backs game last night, grabbed some sleep east of Tucson, and I'm now in New Mexico a couple hours from El Paso.

    It's been a while since I updated this one. I took a load from home on the 2nd and delivered in Sacramento. Since then I've been down to L.A., from L.A. to Boise, from Boise to Medford, OR, and now I'm headed up to Portland to hang out for the weekend and try my luck for something out of there Monday. I hope this rain stops and the weather clears up a bit, but I guess the rain is better than snow.
