    I'm heading to Vance, Alabama today and I don't know the area. My dispatcher didn't want to answer this question because the load isn't delivered yet. Will it be easy to get a load tomorrow out of Vance or is Birmingham or Tuscaloosa better to move to?

    That is a good area for freight. Head to Flying j at exit 104 McCalla or to exit 100 Petro or Loves. Just 4 miles down the road from the Flying J. More room down at exit 100 to park. Too many bobtails down at exit 100. Hope this helps.

      Thumbs DOWN on the J in McCalla! Not only are the showers too small, but I was ripped off the last time I was there. Made a purchase with a 20, the clerk claimed I gave him a 10. Even counted his drawer after I complained. I think I ended up covering a shortage he knew was coming. The Petro at exit 100 is a good place, imho.

      I've always stayed at the J, I'll have to check that out next time.
      Especially, if I arrive after the bobtails have moved in :rolleyes:
