I need to "get a life"

As I work six days a week and never seem to meet anyone interesting, I start to wonder what I can do to "get a life". My run to Texas is not conducive to meeting people. The rest area on I-30 if more of a "take a leak and go" type place and I haven't found a good place to pull in for coffee.

Part of this has to do with leaving about noon (sure like that is happening) and being to warm to want coffee. The other part has to do with pulling "doubles" (7/06/06 post).You have to circle around with them as you "don't" back the pair, making a spot to pull in hard to find. I don't care for large truck stops in that all you see are truckers.

I know, you think I am a "trucker", no I am not, "I drive a truck". There is a big difference.

On a different note: How many blogs do you visit on a regular basic?

.... "I know, you think I am a "trucker", no I am not, "I drive a truck". There is a big difference."

I'm curious to know what you think the biggest differences are.

My RSS reader has 15 blogs that it monitors. Of those 15 blogs, only eight post new items at least once a week.

Of the 15 blogs that I read regularly, I usually leave comments on only 7 of them (if I have something I think is worth offering).

You're not the only one who needs a life! lol When I travel to Toronto, I see quite a few truck stops...I never stop at those restaurants, feel too out of place with all the truckers there. As for how many blogs I visit daily? 58 a day...yup, I do need a life!

I can't even fathom anyone being skillful enough to back up a single although you all can do it. People who drive trucks amaze me sometimes. There is a guy around the corner who is able to park his cab in his driveway with only inches of clearance on each side.

Answer: too many.

I visit about 8 blogs each day - this being one of them. Then there are others I'll visit every few days.

We stop at truck stops to eat if they have home cooked meals...so they're the old run down truck stops.

I keep up with 75+ blogs, but of course they don't all post at the same time and I don't leave comments on all of them. Just read & leave. It's hard to keep up with so many, so I read a weeks worth of posts at one blog at a time...and leave one comment.
