About $10, if you don't fuel there.

If you have the reward program cards that most truck stop chains offer you almost never have to pay for a shower. Although some have increased the amount of fuel you must purchase to get a free shower. It used to be 50 gallons but some now require 75.

I THINK Petros are 75 now. Not sure.... but at least ONE of the big names are. But, don't trust what I say.... it's been a LONG time since I took a shower! :rofl:

(On the ROAD, I mean!)

P.S. The Boise Stage Stop has been 75 gallons as long as I can remember. Not only THAT..... but you have to get another 75 for a co-driver! But, they ARE the best showers on the road!

you mean we have to take showers when we are on the road? i thought it was a unwritten rule that you dont take showers, gain 200 pounds, forget about your teeth and buy stock in sweatpants lol!

That's for the old school "real truck drivers", we are just "steering wheel holders" and that rule dosn't apply to us!
