August 8, 2004 -- I've made it to Jacksonville, Florida where I'm backed into a door waiting to unload my load of beer. I'm hoping that they will reload me tomorrow to head towards home for time off. I'm ready to get away from the truck for a few days.

I made the mistake of stopping at the T/A truck stop in Kenly, North Carolina today for lunch today. I added a review to the top of the restaurant review section on the Home page. The meal was absolutely repulsive. I don't know how these places stay in business -- the only thing I can think of is that they have a captive audience because of their truck parking. It seems that the more trucks there are on the road, the worse the food that they serve gets. It's unbelievable.
