    As Big Bird suggested, this is my one thread for posting about my job as a truck driver. The previous threads don't count.

    Ohio service centers on the interstate rock! Lots of truck parking, drivers' lounge, free showers, free WiFi, and the places in the food court have normal prices.

    I drove from Columbus to Detroit a couple months ago. I don't recall seeing a damn thing but flat boring highway.....and it was dreary and raining. :confused:

    I was through there on the bike Monday. I second the Ohio Turnpike rest areas as good places to use. Clean rest rooms, too.

    Best around! Went through there for Bruce Springsteen en route to Detroit long time ago. Don't be tempted to stay too long. (Only decent thing in Ohio are those plazas.)
