Many years ago,  I was spending the night in a Nevada truckstop out in the boonies. I looked up and watched about ten wild horses just waltz through the middle of the truckstop!  For whatever reason , I have no video of it happening.  Only that one time have I ever seen horses in a truckstop – until tonight. I just happened to look up and saw two horses, this time with riders and not wild and free, roaming through a truckstop. This time I did snap a pic. But then, I also noticed a man just laying down in front of his truck.  True, he has been doing stretching exercises for the last few hours, but still a unique sight.  Earlier tonight, I got two chili cheese dogs and large sweet ice tea for free because I had to wait for them to refill the cheese container. Yup, something different about this truckstop tonight! Oh, and almost forgot about the Pit bull mix dog in the truck beside us. The dog is/was wearing a big blue diaper!  Yes, I’m serious.  I did take a few pics, but he moved around too fast.

Long day tomorrow as we roll right to the delivery in New York, drop and swap trailers,  then get to the next shipper asap. Let’s get some sleep.  More unique adventures await us Friday morning!

  1. Wait.. This is Ohio. I didn’t know there were a couple of transplanted Texans thinking the truckstop was a ranch!

  2. maybe they are getting horsies used to truck noises? ohio is a strange place, but at least its interesting, I want to see doggie in diaper

    1. Out where my grandma used to live in Eastern Ohio was very redneck. You had people in Canfield flying the Confederate Flag proudly. Now when you get to certain parts, it’s Amish who are master craftsman. Hartsville is a good place to go if you want Amish, small town, and easy access to Kent State. Central Ohio is farmers and college yuppies. Cleveland area is burbs, burbs and more burbs.. Cincy? Pretty run down and old especially around the city, be careful!

  3. I think you were tuned into the Twilight Zone there for a bit :D.

    Bro in law’s dog wears a diaper, and will bring you her octopus when she feels you’re stressed, it’s really adorable 😀

    Cute way to start the day here, so thanks 🙂

  4. Hmmmmm … wonder if it happened to be a full moon??!!
    Guess the doggie diaper is still better than making a mess of the truck 🙂

  5. Several years ago I was sitting in a cafe in Colorado. Some German tourists at the next table were telling the waitress that the American west was not what they expected. I thought to myself, “they probably expected to see cowboys everywhere”.
    Just then two girls on horseback rode past the window. 😆
