What do the truckstop showers look like?
Many of the showers at the truck stops are really not to bad overall. OK maybe really it is something you get used to! It is odd when you first start using the truck stop showers to be standing there stark naked and have odd voices talking as they walk up and down the halls right outside the door. I am not comfortable with that situation so Bob and I always shower together as many couples do. I feel better with Bob in the same room as I am which probably relates back to the fact we are always together. I always ask for an extra towel and am usually given two when the shower attendants realize there will be two of us in the shower. We always use shower shoes and watch where we set our shower supplies. I have a carry in bag while Bob has a duffel bag that holds our clothes and his shower items. His shower item are very few compared to my large bag. I have never figured out why he needs so much less stuff then me! We use a lot of different showers and it is hard to explain the great feeling you have when you find a shower that is well lit, a shower with lots of hot water, and a shower with lots of water pressure going in the right direction. You would be surprised at how few of times you find the perfect combination!
The worst experience we have ever had was at a Flying J and our shower was right off the TV room while the Superbowl was going on. People were screaming and yelling and cussing the TV. I jumped every time someone screamed in that room. I was really glad when that shower was over.
