American AutoStop

brad and i are spending the night in north stonington, ct at the american autostop.....since i raised such a fuss over being treated badly at gene's in sumner, washington, i thought i'd let you know about this little jewel we found on the east coast.....as most of you know, truck stops in the northeast can be few and far between, so when you find one, especially a nice one, you want to brag about it a little......actually, now that i'm thinking about that, maybe i should be quiet about it so that no one will know it's here and you won't be coming up here hoggin up all the good parking spots!!!......we're headed up to uxbridge, ma to deliver in the morning and this is about as close in as we could get.......the american autostop is on the west side of i95 at exit 32.....it's free parking ( a novelty up here) and they also have their own version of idleaire which is absolutely free......how about that???......when you pull past the fuel islands there is a very friendly guy waiting to tell you about the parking and how to use the a/c.....and that, due to connecticut's law, to please limit your idling time to 15 minutes at a time......he's really friendly tho....even to the point of walking down to our truck after we'd parked to bring us information on foxwoods casino and a phone number for a taxi to take us there!.....how cool is that??? anyway, they have about 125 parking spaces, a cat scale, a huge store , showers, laundry, and a
restaurant .....it's a little bit of a walk from the parking area to the building, but it's a nice lot and i bet that friendly guy would even run over and pick you up if you smiled at him real nice!.....

I found your blog a little while ago and I just managed to sit down and ready if from start to finish. I really enjoy your writing and your take on things. I really do appreciate you sharing a little bit of your life with us. Keep the rubber side down and be safe out there.

Don't forget to tip the Crack Whore waitress Alison S.(chunky blonde) she just had a child who is addicted to Crack... Poor baby, what a pitiful life ahead!

Alison is not a crack whore first off and her baby is doing just fine. Her boyfriend, the baby and her make a cute family. So everyone who keeps calling her one needs to shut up. You go into a nice place like this where yu have free parking, a tv room, a quiet room, free internet inside, nice ass showers and a laundry area and thats all you can say. Its a pity that you cant see all the real beauty of this place.

I think you can get arrested for making up stuff about people and posting it online. A lot of people are jealous of Alison- and obviously you are one of them! Don't make horrible things - especially when a baby is involved! How bored can you really be??
